Ultimate Bucket List - What I have done so far

Hola!

From previous posts (ie. What Inspires You?) it's clear I've been thinking a lot about what I want to do and how to get there etc. Not only that but I've properly sat down and wrote out my official bucket list! I was always one to write summer bucket lists and I wrote the odd one or two life ones when I was younger, but I always lost them and never had the time to complete them. So now is the time. I have it all written down on paper and to make sure I stick to it, I'm sharing it with you! Since I'm slowly transitioning my blog into a travel blog, I shall be adding a page to my menu above listing all of my bucket list ideas. You can see me cross things out and add even more things, as I add to it every day! There is so much I want to do but in the meantime, I want to share with you a few of the amazing things I've done so far!
bucket list, travel, holiday, adventure, backpacking, lifestyle,

1. Write and direct a play
During my A levels I decided to take it upon myself to complete my EPQ (extended project qualification) and I chose to write and direct a play as a part of it. It wasn't anything I had to do and it became a lot of work but in the end I was incredibly proud. I came out with an A* and then during the summer I found myself self-publishing it in Kindle form, then later in paperback! It was something I never imagined myself to do ever. I would now like to be able to do something similar. Perhaps publish a story or a non-fictional book! (If you want to check out the script click here!)

2. Do an obstacle course race
I remember a time when these were just things you'd see on TV. Obviously nowadays they are much more popular and I was lucky enough to do my first, and definitely not last, one last year! It was only 5K (Adrenaline Rush) but I love every minute of it. If another one comes around near my area we'll definitely be signing up for the 10K this year!

3. Raise over £1000 myself
Hopefully you've all seen my fundraising efforts recently and know that I'm now at £1420.29 thanks to raising £213.70 at my carboot last Sunday! I used to fundraising every Red Nose Day when I was a kid, each year trying to raise more than the last! I think the most I raised was just under £250 and never really imagined I would make much more. Obviously now I'm heading to Tanzania in August to climb Kilimanjaro, I've raised much more and have a higher target! I do still need to raise quite a bit so as usual, any help would be greatly appreciated!

4. Climb Coba!
To be fair, going to Mexico when I turned 18 was a major thing ticked off on my bucket list but being able to say I went there with my boyfriend and we climbed a pyramid was the best thing to come back with. So many fantastic memories have been made in Mexico. It is one of the best places to go exploring. So much so that we then went back a year later and explored Tulum! Mexico has ticked off so many things for me! Also, having Edmond there with me has made it even more special *cringgeeee*! Now we both want to travel even more together. Here's to our next trip to Dominican Republic!

5. Create a blog and keep it going!
If you had asked me a few years ago if I would ever create a blog and stick to it, I definitely wouldn't have thought so. I was blogging back then but it was once or twice every few months! It was only in my gap year that it became a proper thing in my life and only when I was heading off to uni did I realise how proud of it I was that I would openly say I am a blogger. I even changed it to say that I was a blogger/owner at kiralcurtis.com on my Facebook! It's forever changing but I finally feel like my blog is becoming the thing I want it to be. It's still going to take time and hard work, but I have never been more motivated to get there! Bring on the future!

What's on your bucket list? What have you achieved and ticked off your bucket list?

  9. On my bucket list is writing down a bucket list! When I have those 'I really must do that one day' thoughts I never seem to keep them pinned down.

  13. I actually have a bucket list of my own (https://alwayscarryon.com/2016/03/18/make-a-bucket-list/) and am currently trying to complete a "30 countries before 30" challenge, though I don't think I'll be able to tick off any more of my bucket list in the next 9 weeks! x
