Because I don't do resolutions.

You hear the same thing every year. Lose weight. Eat less junk. Spend more time with family. Some of you may accomplish yours, some won't. Personally, I don't do resolutions. I never have. I figure if there's something I want to change about myself then I'll do it right then. I don't need the New Year to inspire me... I can 'start fresh' any time I want! I have a mental list of goals and I'll stick to that. However, there is one thing I created for the New Year. A bucket list. I think everyone should have one. It's a fun list of all the things I want to accomplish before I... well, kick the bucket. Some of them are silly, some are serious, but they are ALL important to me. I'm sure I'll add to the list (and cross some off) as time goes on, but this is what I put together so far.

Bucket list
