A stupidly long list

One of my favorite quotes is 'Don't live for today, because then you'd be fucking crazy, but live your life like it's a story that you'd want to tell someone' (Philip DeFranco). I think this ought to be my motto because I have always been obsessed with living an interesting life and have been lusting after all of the things which I am about to list below. 

The following list has been compiled over the last few two years or so and has been edited many times since its origin. I'm only going to write the things I haven't done yet. 

  • Swim in the Devil's Pool
  • Climb Mount Kilimanjaro 
  • Get high in Amsterdam
  • Get drunk at Oktoberfest
  • Meet a YouTuber (known for vlogging)
  • Meet a celebrity
  • Volunteer or work abroad
  • Go to university
  • Visit all 7 continents
  • Really travel 
  • Take a picture of the stars
  • Get something published
  • See the 7 wonders of the world
  • Sail down the Nile in a felucca
  • Visit Iguazu falls
  • Hold a sloth 
  • Road trip across America
  • See the Northern Lights
  • Spend Christmas and New Years in New York City
  • Catch a firefly in an old jam jar
  • Travel across a desert
  • See a zoo animal in the wild
  • Fill my travel diary (an old leather-bound thing filled with real parchment)
  • Go to a sweet shop in Japan and try five random sweets
  • Go to Loy Krathong in Thailand
  • Swim in a lake
  • Own a cat or dog for the entirety of its life
  • Visit the fjords in Norway
  • Take a picture of a skyline 
  • Protest
  • Write in The Elephant House
  • Truly help somebody
  • Watch the Superbowl as it should be watched
That is a long list.


  1. Really? You want to watch the Superbowl? I mean, I do watch it, but I'm American so it's practically required. Also, what is "Really traveling"? As opposed to... pretend traveling? *is confused...*

  2. Yeah I want to watch it, I've never seen it. It's like with films, even if I expect them to be bad I want to see them.

    When I went to Edinburgh last summer one of the comedians made some joke about 'real' travelling. Her friend packed up and left one day to go traveling and when he came home they went to a café and he was given a £2 coin as change. He held it out to her and asked what the hell it was (because he'd been away so long the currency had changed). And I mean travelling like back packing rather than sitting by some pool in Spain :)
