The Millennial Bucket List

Millennial Bucket List

This is The Millennial Bucket List. It is a list of 150+ things I want to complete in my lifetime. It will continuously be altered, updated, and changed, much like myself. My goal is to be able to check off at least 100 items off the bucket list before my 30th Birthday.

Why Create A Bucket List?

I’ve been living my days spending most of my time caught up in a flurry of day-to-day activities. I have developed a feeling that my days are passing by me and I’m not making the most out of every day. What have I accomplished in the past 3 months? What are my upcoming goals for the next 3 months? Having this bucket list reminds me of what’s really important so that I can act on them. I have come to learn that unique and fun experiences are most important to me and I cherish those memories.

The whole point of creating my Millennial Bucket List is to maximize every moment of my existence and to live my life to the fullest. It’s a reminder of all the things I’d like to achieve in my lifetime so that instead of pandering my time in pointless activities, I’m able to direct it towards fulfilling what really matters to me.

I’ll post photos of me completing these goals and include stories about my worthy millennial bucket list experiences. Feel free to comment and make suggestions along the way. I also hope you gain inspiration from the millennial bucket list and ideas so that you can create your own version of the millennial bucket list!

  1. OMG, you’re awesome and I mean it. Everyone has a wish-list but the way you described it in words, superb. I also have similar kind of wish-list but I don’t know whether I can fulfill it in my life time. I wish all of your dreams come true very soon.
    I went through the complete bucket list and I believe you deserve everything except “Experience Zero Gravity”, is it actually possible?

    • Thanks Amy! It really does help me to have it written down because I subconsciously work towards my goals & wishes everyday! ?

      Zero gravity exists! Have you seen those zero gravity chambers? They’re pretty cool and I hope to experience the thrill of it all sometime very, very soon! ?? I hope you are able to fulfill your bucket list items very soon!
