My Bucket List

After reading The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart by Anna Bell I thought that it was about time that I created one of my own. I realised that there wasn’t anything pressing that I wanted to do and that got me a bit worried. If you don’t want for anything you can get a bit bored and stagnant. Idle hands and all that jazz. So I have decided to create a bucket list. After pondering this for a few days I realised there are a few things that I want to do. So here is my list.

  • Learn how to play the piano – I had some lessons a few years back but due to reasons that I would rather not go into those lessons had to cease. This was after spending £500 on an electronic piano – not a keyboard, a full size 88 key piano. Admittedly, it has sat stagnant for a good few years. I want to become proficient in piano playing. Not to expert level but good enough to justify this purchase.
  • Learn how to play the ukulele – I like music and I love ukulele music. It is hard to feel melancholy when a song is played by the ukulele. Again, I have this instrument I just do not know how to play it…yet.
  • Learn sign language – are you sensing a theme? I like learning things and I have always wanted to learn sign language. I think the root of the desire to learn the last three things is because I was deaf as a child. I think this has had an impact on my love of music and also my want to be able to communicate with people who are hearing impaired.
  • Keep learning French – a few years ago I re-sat my GCSE in French and I received an A* for my efforts but I haven’t advanced much past this level. I want t be fluent.
  • Go to Paris – This one goes hand in hand with the previous desire. I love Paris. I love the feelings that it invokes and I will spend time there. I will buy books from Shakespeare and Co. I will eat delicious pastries in Montmartre. I will go there.
  • Clear my NetGalley review pile – I made the classic mistake when I signed up for NetGalley and I went on a mad clicking spree and then I realised that I had a million books to review. I will get it finished.
  • Own a kitten – I want a kitten.

So yes, there is my Bucket List. I would love to know what things are on yours so let me know in the comments below.

    Great list! Which are you going to start on first?

    My bucket list is LONG and is here: tinykelsie.com/before-i-kick-the-bucket/ I’ve already done at least 20 but I haven’t marked off the online list.

    I did the exact same thing with NetGalley! My pile is out of control! I’m working hard to get it down, but I think my percentage is like 20-something? It’s terrible! All I’ve been reading since the beginning of the year, minus 5, have been NetGalley related. Ahh! Good luck getting your ARC pile down!

    That’s a great list and you are right, you must like learning things! I would like to get a piano and play regularly – I took years of lessons, but I don’t have one. Maybe someday!
