Ryan’s Bucket List

in Miscellaneous | 5 minutes read

For the longest time I have been keeping a bucket list of things I would like to do during my lifetime. I used to keep the items I wanted to do as a mental list in my head, but the past couple years I started to write them down. When Schemer was still a working application I would use it to document and keep track of my bucket list items. Recently the service was shutdown by google so I had to export all of my data in order to save it. I had no where to keep my list anymore, and while I am sure there are other services out there to use. I have decided to write them down here, and maybe it will inspire ideas for others on their lists.

This list will be updated and changed as needed; although I am not sure how frequently it will change. I have also included the items that I have completed so far. These are listed in no particular order, however, I did try to group them in regards to their activity or category. Feel free to share links to your bucket lists or suggest other ideas for mine.
