2015 Bucket List

Happy New Year! It’s officially 2015! I love the beginning of the year. There’s just something about a new calendar that signifies a change, a new leaf. Of course, many people make resolutions of all the things they hope to accomplish over the year, most of which are forgotten by the time Valentine’s Day rolls around. So, this year instead of making the normal resolutions (lose weight, save money, etc) which are normally behavior based, I decided to make a bucket list. The purpose of this list to to identify things that I want to DO. I purposely didn’t put any time frames around them ( do x per month), but at the end of the year I can go down the list and see how many I can check off. I also didn’t assign numbers to any of them (except the reading one since it seems sill to just say “read A book”), but the hope is that for many of them I’ll actually do it more than once (like the winery – hello). I also tried to mix it up between things that I’m pretty sure I would do regardless, things that I’ve been wanting to do but just haven’t gotten around to doing, and larger scale things that will require more planning on my part but that I REALLY want to do and just need to do it (getting that passport stamp).

So, here’s my list for 2015:

  • Take an art class
  • Take a flying (plane) class
  • Get a stamp in my passport
  • Run a 5k
  • Hike Old Rag
  • Read 24 books
  • Take a trapeze class
  • Attend an outdoor movie screening
  • Go to a baseball game
  • Visit the Newseum
  • Visit Colonial Williamsburg
  • Attend an event at Wolf Trap
  • Visit the Botanical Gardens
  • Participate in an urban scavenger hunt
  • Visit the National Zoo
  • See Zoo Lights
  • Go ice skating at the Sculpture Garden
  • Go to a winery
  • Go to a church service in DC
  • Find a volunteer opportunity
  • Learn to tango

While not a “bucket list” item, I will also continue to strive for being present, grateful and humble.

What’s on your bucket list?
