Buy Me A Bucket

For this writing assignment from the assignment bank I had to write a bucket list that could have been legit or illegitimate. I actually started a bucket list in high school with stupid stuff on it, most of which I have already completed, and just add onto and check off of it as I go towards kicking the bucket. So without further ado, I give you my bucket list:

  • Count how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop
    • This one I thought of in high school and just haven’t had the opportunity to do yet
  • Go on a Disney Cruise
    • This one I added to my list when I went to Disney World with my birthday twins from high school for our 18 birthdays
  • Run a marathon
    • I have always wanted to do this one because my elderly neighbor used to tell me all about her marathons and how much fun she would have while running them
  • Buy an Audi R8
    • I added this one in high school when I was SUPER into Top Gear and realized that my favorite car ever is an Audi R8…by the way it would have to be a blue one
  • Go on a trip around the US, visiting every state’s capital building
    • This one I adopted from my cousin and his wife because they went to half of the states and wished they had actually gone to all 50 states
  • Climb to the top of The Devil’s Tower
    • I added this one when my family and I went on vacation two summers ago and we went to The Devil’s Tower but couldn’t climb all the way up it because you need ropes and rock climbing experience
  • Hike under all of the Natural Bridges at Natural Bridges National Monument
    • I added this one this summer when my family and I went to Natural Bridges National Monument and hiked under the first two bridges but skipped the last bridge because it was too far away
  • Hike to the top of The Great Sand Dunes at Great Sand Dunes National Park
    • I added this one this summer after my family and I went to The Great Sand Dunes National Park and only made it half way up them.
  • Hike to the top of The Narrows at Zion National Park
    • I also added this one this summer when my family and I went to Zion National Park but only hiked up about half of The Narrows
  • Hike to the top of Angel’s Landing at Zion National Park
    • I also added this one this summer when my family and I went to Zion National Park but decided to not hike up Angel’s Landing because we didn’t have enough time to, my dad is afraid of heights, and my mom heard that people have fallen off of the trail and died so she got scared out of it but I, obviously, still want to do it

Bucket List Final

I would add winning the lottery to my bucket list but after reading “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson I don’t want to win the lottery…ever.
