The list

I made my bucket list right before turning 26 (a couple of months ago). Something about getting older makes me frantic about achieving my dreams (or at least writing them down hah). Making it was actually inspired by an article I read online.

I noted the list on my little black book (no promiscuity involved…well, not much anyway), but then decided to share it with everyone here.

As per the article’s 5th rule: “Don’t be realistic. Dream big. Write down the craziest things you can think of, as well as the things that you don’t even think bear mentioning because they are so simple”, I tried to mention every goal/dream regardless of them being achievable or not.

Here goes:

  1. Raise a beautiful dog: a French bulldog, a Boston terrier, a Labrador, a Dalmatian or a Saint-Bernard – Or all of those
