My 150+ Item Bucket List

Because the world is far too vast for anything less

than the biggest of dreams

As inspired by Steve Kamb, my bucket list is set up with a levels system. Every item I cross off of my bucket list is 20% experience towards my next level. When I reach 100%, I level up and start on the next level!

Whenever I level up, it’s time to treat myself! Usually, that comes in the form of something sweet. I’m a firm believer in the idea that any victory in life is worth celebrating, even in the smallest of ways.

Status: I’m currently level 3, and I’m 80% of the way to the next level!

How My List is Organized

My bucket list is sorted two ways, location specific, and everything else. The “everything else” category is further broken down into sub categories such as Athletics, Animals, Ect.

Also, there’s a number next to each category that signifies how many bucket list items are in it, it’s really just for my personal organization purposes πŸ™‚
