Bucket List

We wrote down our weekly goals in those big agendas with the shiny covers in grade school. Some of us have great to-do list apps on our phone for daily goals. We read our goals for the next hour during a test, and our mind even processes micro-goals whenever we are asked a question. If we have goals for even such insignificant portions of our lives, then it only makes sense to have goals that span over our entire life time.

Morgan Freeman is the one who introduced me to the idea of a bucket list, thanks to his movie. The list was original called The Brollycocks Policy, for reasons unknown, but I intend to preserve the original name.
