I'm stealing a meme from my friend Clara at Coming Back to Life. It’s called a Bucket List Meme. A “Bucket List” is stuff you want to do in your life before you kick the bucket. See the post that I stole from here.
My personal list would not have some of these items and would include others. So this is a generic Bucket List. The reason for using the generic list is that it allows us to compare our answers. That said, here is the list. Things I have done are in bold face.
