What is a bucket list, you may ask? Well, you've come to the right person.
A bucket list is a list of experiences or achievements that you would like to accomplish before you die, or in other words, kick the bucket.
I have had a bucket list since I was 13 (!) and I have slowly been adding to and editing the same document ever since. 
So here it is below, in all its glory: my list of 171 things that I would like to do before I die, set in the order in which I wrote it (minus a few that I felt the need to delete since I no longer hold the same desires as my 13-year-old self...like go to an underage festival).
I am proud to say that there are a number of goals and experiences that I have crossed off, but it excites me to know that I have many more to go. I plan to update my list as I move forward in life, so that no matter what I do, this will always be an up-to-date version for you all to see.
