Bucket List

Here’s my stance on bucket lists. I don’t think it’s fair to put things on one’s bucket list that are about someone doing something for you (for example, things like, “get roses from a secret admirer” or “be proposed to at the Eiffel Tower.”) so I chose not to include those kinds of things. On my bucket list, there are things which include other people, but aren’t strictly about other people doing something for me. I don’t feel like it’s fair to have items on my list of things to do before I die be entirely dependent on other people. Most of these are inspired by a couple of bucket list tumblrs: Before I Die and  Perfect Bucket List.

    • I was looking at their site earlier but couldn’t decide what to get. I really want to try a bath bomb or bubble bar, but I only want to buy a couple of things, It’s just that it all sounds so good I don’t know what to pick!

      • Do a bath bomb instead of a bubble bar. They’re way better. I like the bombs that have dissolving glitter inside… they leave the surface of the water all shimmery.
