Bucket List and F*ck It List

#1 Postby Baby Hercules » Fri May 11, 2012 3:23 pm

What's your list of cool things to experience before you die? What did you scratch off the list?


A few things on my Bucket List:

1. Fall in love and live with my best friend.
2. Learn to downhill ski, then telemarking, then speedflying.
3. Enjoy a constant influx of money so great that I never have to think about it again and can lavish gifts on my friends at will.
4. Design and build a gorgeous self-sustaining modern home off the grid, ala Dwell Magazine, with the aforementioned friend.
5. Be a leading edge pioneer in educating the world about the connection between matter and consciousness.
6. Feel irrepressibly confident 24/7.


My F*ck It List:

1. Get legally married (What for?)
2. Climb Everest to Base Camp (Already crowded.)
3. Heal my parents (Don't get me started.)
4. Travel the world (I would reinstate this one if #3 above successfully parlays into a large personal jet.)
5. Savor revenge upon my enemies (They're already miserable or they wouldn't have been such a*holes.)
6. Collect a lot of books and movies (I know where to find them when I want them.)

This is a very though provoking topic. I have often felt like my idea of the "meaning of life" was less formulated than the average person's. Grow up, create a career for yourself, fall in love, find a good wife, have children, raise them well, wash, rinse, repeat.

That being said I put people at the highest of my priority list.

1. Continue to make my parents proud.
2. Be a better brother to my sister.
3. Not lose touch with close friends and show them how valuable they are.

4. Fall in love and nurture that love into a marriage.
5. Have children 1-3 (hopefully have my first within the next 4 years or less).
6. Be an amazing father and raise my kids to be intelligent, caring, and fun.

7. Be financially stable, be able to provide everything that my family, current and future will ever need.
8. Own my own business or be in a position where I can make real decisions and create real change.
9. Volunteer on a large scale, where my role makes a major impact. Possibly running my own event, annual event, charity or organization designed to be doing good for either people, animals or the environment or all of the above.
10. Continue to travel and experience other cultures and environments. I'd like my future wife and children to also enjoy these experiences with me.

11. I want to have all my hair with out rogaine, my sexual vitality without viagra, and to be able to snowboard and play soccer still past age 50.

12. I want to be able to look back at my life once a year, every year, and feel like I am making progress, living my life to the fullest, and that I have no regrets.

Yeah that's about it, nothing too crazy right?

Nice topic, Herc!

Really great stuff, Dylan! Love reading this, especially since I've known you since we were 1 year old :)

Awesome, meaningful things. Really happy to see all those great thoughts and ideas.

I don't know about my fuckit list. Really I'd say it mostly has to do with not having any regrets about the past. Also as far as jobs go or amount of money made, I think I've come to the point where I understand the importance of enjoying life over money but also know how much money is needed to be able to live happily. Balance is key for me.

Nice. I was thinking along the lines of goals you've had in the past that you've exchanged for others. What did you leave behind so you could grab onto something even better?

So good to see you're still around, Baby Herc, spreading your positivity and awesomes sense of humour!

My bucket list:
- moving back to the country side (preferably with somebody else)
- a job that's less stressful and less time-consuming
- a bunch of friends who enjoy camping

F'ck it list:
- university degree
- trying to make other people proud
- looking for the one job that would make me happy and fulfilled, I doubt that any job could do that for me..

I left a really special girl behind. I will always love her and never go back or have a chance to go back. But we wanted different things. She was/is grounded, I needed to travel and live in new places. I have no regrets. Life has been an adventure, and will continue to be so. I have a new gf (2 months in) and she is incredible. I am very lucky in a lot of ways. A lot of my previous life goals changed when I left that relationship (10 years).

As far as I know, no :) I've been active about 2 years ago, and just came back to this forum last week.

I love an adventurous life that includes travelling as well. I've been living in the UK for 3 months, came back to Austria in December, but already feel like I need to get away again. I'll keep my boring job for some more months and then I want to visit the USA. And we'll see what happens after that :)
What places have you lived in so far, Dylan?

I've done a lot of travel but haven't really lived a lot of places, unless you count like 6 weeks here and 3 months there living. I've only really lived in various places in Oregon, San Francisco, and currently New York.
I've done long stays in Colorado, Seattle, and Australia. I've visted Japan, The Yucatan in Mexico including cancun, New Zealand, Various parts of Canada, England, Scotland, Germany, Poland, Czech, Hungary, and Austria. I think that's all.
