Bucket List Meme

Okay, so I stole this one from Rebecca over at the Freaky Frugalite. I just recently stumbled upon her site through Entrecard and you should definitely go and check her out.

It’s called a Bucket List Meme, and I’m not quite sure why. Does it have something to do with some movie with the same name? If so, I regret using the same title. :-p I’m such a non-conformist. Supposedly, a “Bucket List” is stuff you want to do in your life before you kick da bucket, am I right? I don’t see how this list would qualify for me, because I would have WAAAY more than this… but it’s a meme, and I like memes… so Bucket List or no, these are the things I have done, as signified in bold letters.
