Well — I’m at it again. For me, these annual bucket lists are a testament to the old adage, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” I’ve made two previous lists and unfortunately only made little dents in them. This year, sitting in the gardens outside Les Jardins du Luxembourg in France I wrote my third annual bucket list.
25 is my year ladies and gentlemen. I will succeed! I think the key to this one is I actually wrote it around my birthday… not 6 months into the year!
Without further ado, here’s 25 things I want to accomplish before I turn 26!
