*My Bucket List*


Flat lay - a notebook with the title "My little book of plans and schemes"

I've always wanted to have an "official" bucket list.

Some people think the whole "list of things to do before I die" is a bit depressing - but I think it's pretty cool! I like to have goals and things to look forward too.

The most important thing about my list is that it's realistic. What's the point in me writing: "run a marathon" or "do a skydive" - because let's be honest - that's never going to happen!

Some things on my list I have already achieved *yay me*. I won't bore you with the full details for now, but here's a little sneak-peek at some of my top wishes:

- Watch Adele Live -

This has always been number one on my bucket list. I'm greedy in the fact that I've now achieved this twice - and she just keeps on getting better! You can read my blog about this experience by clicking here.

I guess the next stage would be to actually meet her in person. Adele, I 'm coming for ya... 3rd time lucky!

- Buy a Puppy -

As you read this, my friends are probably rolling their eyes because I have literally talked about this for years now. I am beyond fussy and I'm not the kind of guy who rushes into anything.

This is also my biggest downfall, as I tend to overthink everything way too much. I know I will find the perfect pooch in my own time - and the more pressure I receive from others, the more I tend to back away!

*update. Meet Ralph:

- Go to a Silent Disco -

I've never been to a silent disco - SHOCKING! For those who don't know what that is, it's an event/rave where you can dance and listen to music through wireless headphones.

Plans for this wish are in the pipeline, as I have booked to go to the Little Orchard Cider Festival in a couple of weeks.

Keep your eyes peeled for that epic blog post coming soon!

- Go to a Movie Drive-In -

This is a proper old-skool wish, but definitely something I've always wanted to do! I've seen the odd cinema drive-in advertised in Cornwall recently, so I'm definitely keen for that!

*update. I finally did this and it was EPIC!

- Learn how to make Balloon Animals -

Completely random but something I've always wished I could do! At heart I'm still a massive kid... or maybe a bit of a clown - I'm not too sure.

I was even given a balloon-modelling kit last year, but I just haven't got round to doing it yet!

- Go into the Big Brother House -

Big Brother is one of my favourite TV shows and my ultimate guilty pleasure. I have watched it for years' now and have always fancied giving it a go myself.

It's the biggest social experiment and I'd love to take on the challenge. I can't remember the last time they had a disabled housemate, let alone anyone from Cornwall!

No doubt I'd be the one in the corner having a mental breakdown - but hey, if it makes good TV... LOL

*update. Unfortunately the show has since been axed after 18 years. Fingers crossed it will make it's return one day.

- Run a Successful Blog -

I'm still fairly new to the blogging scene and I have a long way to go. But my dream is for this to one day be my full-time job.

My end goal is to start working with bigger brands, whilst still writing content that I enjoy.

Thank you to everyone for subscribing so far. I'm having so much fun with it and I'm LOVING every second.

It's safe to say that I'm already taking a step (or a wheel) in the right direction...

Let me know if you guys enjoyed reading this sort of post. If so, maybe I'll share a few more of my random little goals for the future...
