My bucket list

So I’ve been thinking about starting a bucket list, and today I finally did it. Today seemed fitting. It’s 24 days until my 24th birthday on December 24. There are a few things on this list that I can do before I’m 24, others will have to wait.

To my surprise, it was a little difficult to put this list together. I feel like I’ve done a lot, at least a lot of the things I wanted to do. And I really couldn’t think of much outside of travel and food. What does that say about me? Without having seen Eat, Pray, Love, I feel dangerously close to being a cliché.

What’s on your bucket lists? I need some suggestions. This list is going to continue to run on a separate page of this blog. Hopefully I remember to blog about crossing things off the bucket list.

OK. I’m tired. Good night. List below.

If Marcia Miller had to pick up everything and leave, then she'd make sure to grab a few things before she left. First, the duffel bag is a must, followed by her laptop and iPod. She grabs her journal next, along with every CD she owns - just in case. Miller pulls off the pictures and concert tickets that adorn her walls. A towel is going to be handy too - this she learned from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." Finally, she grabs a handful of pens and her trusty AP Stylebook, throws her duffel back over her back and picks up her purse. Closing the door behind her, she leaves her apartment, heads down the stairs and... Well, Miller heads to your office because she's ready to do a job. She is ready to move at a moment's notice, write what needs to be written, edit what needs to be edited, promote what you think the world needs to know about. Miller's got the personality, the skills and the spunk to succeed in any situation. She's not afraid of trying new things or getting her feet wet. Her moto: If an opportunity doesn't present itself, then create one.

    Only because it is my job to pick on you. I take it that these are in no specific order because, for some reason, getting married its about 10 slots BEFORE falling in love… mhm..mhm..mhm.. I see. =]
