My Bucket List Story

If i were to be asked what my fears are, the first thing on my list would probably be DEATH. It is an end to existence and a cause of grief. It is a topic i try to avoid and an event i don’t want to face,and to the people i love. But then again, what is life without death? Every time the topic is brought up, my mind wonders.. “How would i die?” “What is it like to be dead?” “What will happen to the memories i treasured during my lifetime?” “Where do i go from here?” The questions just goes on and on. Sometimes, i even imagine myself locked up in a casket being buried. Slowly, my view is covered with dirt until my sight and my mind are filled with NOTHINGNESS. If death were to knock on my door tomorrow, i’d ask it to come some other time because i’m not ready to face it yet. I haven’t done much in my life and i think that there’s so much to do. The idea of death made me come up and make a BUCKET LIST:a list of things to do before i die. I started keeping track before i went to college. So far, i have 150 things on my list and having 12 already crossed out. I admit that most of the things on my list seems immature like climb a tree, ride an old train, pull off an intense prank, and even eat a gelato. But these are the things i want to do. The things i want to experience at least once in my life. We only get to live once, that’s why we should make the most out of it. I made this blog so i can share and keep track everytime I’ve done something on my list. And i start now with the 147th on my list: MAKE A BLOG.

  • Cindy0964 I love that Jesse. That is a great way to think of it. I went parasailing last year, 800 feet up on a tether line. People my age (48) looked at me like I had lost my mind when I talked about it :)

  • Jesse In my opinion, its the things that people see as immature that is the most funny things to do. so just go for it^^

  • jaycee I don't think that a bucket list has to be so grand that you have to only have grand things listed, they should be what you desire...your items that you shared are not immature, they are very real, real to you. I want to swim in an ocean... i only go as far as the tide touching my ankles and believe me that is alot for me, it's a childhood fear. However, keep crossing out that list.
