My driving instructor told me he was a school bus driver once. I asked "why?" and he said, "because it was on my bucket list, so I did it for two years and then stopped." He went on to tell me he had other things on his bucket list, such as learning new languages. He asked me what I had on my bucket list, and I was caught off guard, because I hadn't thought about it.

Now that I have, I realized I always wanted start drumming and I want to pick up painting again, since I enjoyed it very much in high school. There are a few other things on my list, but I want to hear about your guys' bucket list. What do you guys want to do, or learn to do before you die?

You can easily do all these over the next 12-18 months.

I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.

Already working on #1. The rest I either don't have as much time currently or I'm just broke (Still in undergrad).

How do you read a book a week for 2 years in less than 2 years?

Fewer* than

"Less is also used with numbers when they are on their own and with expressions of measurement or time, e.g.:

His weight fell from 18 stone to less than 12.

Their marriage lasted less than two years.

Heath Square is less than four miles away from Dublin city centre."

I recommend learning how to maintain your car or motorcycle

1) Learn the fiddle
2) Deep sea fishing (prefer to catch marlin)
3) Roadtrip with camping/hiking along Route 66
4) Swim with tiger sharks
5) Become certified as an advanced diver (followed with upper levels)
6) Become certified to skydive solo

9) Start a business that I would enjoy
10) Buy an acreage out in the wilderness

9/4/17

Skydiving, starting a business, and diving are also on my list. The PTSD awareness is very interesting, how come you want to do that specifically?

9/4/17

If there are two causes I had to pick from, they would be vets and terminally ill children (in no order). I think it would be cool to do the ruck march. Bummed I missed Chicago's this past May - had a friend's wedding back home.

9/4/17

for #4, look up mark healey, he can help you with that.

9/4/17

I'd rather go with Ocean Ramsey ( deg ?? deg)

9/4/17

yeah I could see why

Awesome list, +1 SB for the skydive solo and PTSD awareness goals.

  • Getting married
  • Getting divorced
  • Earning a ton of money
  • Having a shitload of kids and sending them to college so I can be a patriarch
  • Living in a beach town in Europe or Southeast Asia
  • Living in a foreign city and earning residence / citizenship
  • Building a business and getting away from it just enough to be Partner Emeritus
  • Traveling most of the world and taking pictures of exotic locales
  • Learn French and Japanese
  • Master / finish learning Mandarin
  • Live at sea for some considerable amount of time
  • Buy my mom a house
  • Buy my mom a fresh car
  • Build some kind of shelter from wood

I'm pretty basic. This list could go on for pages but it'd just be a list of "little big things". At the end of the day my ideal 10/10 life would just be having considerable sex every day with a model, playing video games with my friends, and smoking enough weed to immobilize a dinosaur. I never grew up, sadly.

I'm totally curious, what do you mean by a pillar of your church? Is that an actual thing in whatever Christian denomination you're a part of or is it something to your church specifically?

9/7/17

Not really a specific thing, just mean someone who who people trust and rely on, the way you would say "a pillar of his community."

Scotland is truly beautiful! I spend virtually every other weekend up there and it is fantastic.

9/6/17

I'd love to take a tour of the distilleries, watch a rugby game, and hunt a stag while I'm there.

The rugby is fantastic, especially in Scotland! The Scottish National Anthem is quite moving before a game at Murrayfield. I've got myself a season ticket for the Autumn Series and the Six Nations at Murrayfield and i am quite excited for it!

To be a respected member of society someday.

Lol jk I work for the banking industry.

Respect on the wanting to get back into painting. I met a girl recently and spent an afternoon doing water colors (first time since I was 10), good stuff. It is very time consuming but an amazing use of downtime.

On my bucket list:

  1. backpack across Europe with my friends of 10+ years
  2. Reach the top of the North Poll
  3. Snowboard through the Swiss Alps and plan a spontaneous trip to Chile to do the same thing
  4. Help my parents retire
  5. Start a non-for-profit tailored towards war vets or animals. Both very different, but unsure of which one
  6. Create. This doesn't have to be one thing, whether it be music, glass-blowing, art, trying to invent a product, etc. I was always destroying shit while my brother was busy creating.
  7. Come up with my own unique recipe (I fucking love salmon poke bowls, so I may start there).
  8. Mentor someone less fortunate than myself
  9. Hike with a girl through Hawaii for at least a week
  10. Go back and thank all the people in my life that have helped me make it this far (e.g. teachers, mentors, etc.)
  11. Skydive

Most of mine are either travel based or giving back, so I would say it is pretty clear where my focus lies.
