2018 Bucket List

The new year is officially upon us, and now is the time many people are putting together their New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve done this before, and while I’ve found it successful, I’ve decided to take a new approach for 2018.

I want to focus on the future this year. Instead of trying to change things about who I am and how I live my life with traditional resolutions, I decided to create a 2018 bucket list to inspire me to keep looking forward.

This list includes already-planned events, new ideas, tasks pulled from my larger bucket list, and things I’ve been putting off for far too long.

2018 Bucket List:

  • Donate blood
  • Attend at least four concerts
  • Meet Kate Voegele and Tyler Hilton*
  • Spend a weekend in the Smoky Mountains*
  • Attend the second annual Women’s March*
  • Read a poem at an open mic night
  • Hike to a beautiful waterfall site
  • Participate in a Color Run
  • Host a movie night with blanket forts and junk food
  • Spend a week on the North Carolina coast
  • Travel to Arizona to see my cousin, Ashley
  • Ride a mechanical bull*
  • Write a letter to myself to open in 10 years
  • Read 24 books
  • Take photos in a photo booth
  • Go to an amusement park
  • Take a class
  • Do a one-week social media cleanse
  • Make a new friend*
  • Participate in hands-on activism leading up to the 2018 elections
  • Visit a National Park I’ve never been to before
  • Take photos in a field of sunflowers
  • Volunteer
  • Celebrate the holidays with my family

On top of all of these things, I know that 2018 will bring with it adventures and plans I haven’t even dreamt up yet. I am both humbled and excited to see what this year holds.

Keep your mind and your goals focused on the present and the future this year. There’s no need to live in the past; what’s done is done. Set concrete goals for yourself and start off 2018 with momentum.

*This list will be updated throughout the year, with asterisks added to things I have completed.
