Reverse Bucket List

This is a cool idea that I discovered over on Amanda’s page.  It’s a great way to think about what you’ve achieved.  As explained on this other page, it can seem like a brag list, but I’m sure you guys can appreciate this idea for what it is: a list of cool things that you have ALREADY ACHIEVED!  Sometimes I spend so much time thinking worrying freaking out about the future and how much stuff I should be doing, that I forget to look back and go ‘hey, I have done a bunch of really cool stuff and that should be celebrated”

1) Met some random off the internet who turned out to be one of the best friends a girl could want

2) Visited NYC and successfully navigated it

3) Decided to move overseas by myself and actually did it

4) Met a celebrity and told them how much their stuff meant to me (<— excruciatingly embarrassing and awkward for both of us, but how many chances do you ever get to do that?!)

5) Got my vet nursing degree- guys, I don’t do science and I did it!

6) Assisted in a dog caesarean and resuscitated puppies to life

7) Saw Britney Spears in concert- front row, baby!

8) Watched something I wrote get performed onstage

9) Ran 10km

10) Participated in Hogmanay celebrations in Edinburgh


11) Watched a meteor shower

12) Made disgustingly yummy baked treats successfully

13) Went to Stonehenge

14)  Watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy in an entire day

15) Made a Queen’s Royal Guard laugh (by accident because I am a dork)

16) Worked (and danced!) in a bar on a Greek island over the course of a summer


17) Been to Disneyland

18) Wrote a letter to myself to be opened in ten years time- and I waited and read it on the correct date!

19) Completed NaNoWriMo

20) Graduated university

On a side note, I am currently compiling my ‘30 before 30’ list and it’s been really fun.  I know I’ll be doing lots of travelling in the next year or so therefore I am putting a lot of big ticket items on the list.


  1. You are legitimately one of my heroes and I want to elaborate more on this except for the fact that MY EMOTIONS are getting in the way because of item #1 on your list. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  2. And then even after I said all that stuff about emotions, blogger still wanted me to prove I am not a robot. Rude!!
