18 things I need to fulfill ~ My bucket list


For those who may not know, a bucket list is a list of things you would like to do before you kick the bucket. I am currently maintaining a firm handle on my youth and I believe there are still so many things I have not managed to do with my life.

I was telling someone about how I have no goals, I just live for the moment and tackle whatever it is that may come my way. I do not necessarily work towards something, I just work to get the job done. Yes, you may insert your disapproval here.

It hit me as I thought about the contents of my bucket list, will these things constitute what my goals should be??

Coming up with this list has made me reflect on what I would like to do with my life, and what would make me feel fulfilled. So here goes nothing:

  1. To XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX only my very close friends know what this is ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. To become published be it a book, or an article in a magazine. I would really love to write for True Love as a start and then other globally established magazines like Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire.
  3. I would love to generate revenue from my blog. I guess the first step towards achieving that would be to register a domain. That is pretty easy, but I must come up with the perfect name and address for it first.
  4. I am working on buying a car as soon as possible. The daily commute has been a great inconvenience for me ever since we moved to the burbs eons ago. A vehicle is a very important necessity for me, plus I think it is just the epitome of independence. I can go wherever I want, whenever I want, and be sure I will look good doing it.
  5. Keeping in line with number 4, I must drive on that nightmare of a road known as Thika Road, and I must be a driver on a road trip be it upcountry or Naivasha and ultimately Mombasa.
  6. I plan on opening a store and selling custom made jewellery, accessories and eventually clothes. If I was to dream bigger, I would want to open a franchise in Kenya, then EA, Africa and eventually the whole world.
  7. I would love to travel a whole lot more, and marvel at the wonders and beauty of this world that is supposedly ending. I would love to party in South Africa, go for Mardi gras in Brazil, attend an international sevens tournament in Edinburgh or Adelaide, ย attend a concert at Madison Square Gardens, I must go to Las Vegas and BMF. I wish I could be lucky enough to do something that requires frequent travel.
  8. I must attend a football match at Nyayo Stadium, and a premier league football match. Now that I do not dabble in the goings on in soccer right now, the match I choose to attend will depend on the level of hotness of the players ๐Ÿ˜‰
  9. I would like to try my hand at a round of golf. I think I am good at it but I havenโ€™t had a chance to test that theory since I have never tried it.
  10. I must get my picture taken by Jim Chuchu and the guy for True Love, I think his name is David. I somehow must get featured on True Love to be able to get my picture taken by David. As for Jim Chuchu, I hear he does not take portraits anymore, regardless of who you are. I always keep begging my friend to make this dream happen but it seems to be futile. I want him to take my picture so badly, Jim Chuchu if you are reading this, please make this wish come true. Otherwise I will have to result to finding a way to accidentally stumble upon one of his shoots and immerse myself inside it!
  11. I need me a blackberry like really really bad! The need is insane, but clearly not insane enough for me to go out and buy one. Hopefully I will get those jobs where they will give me one for free, or I will win one in some competition (Fat chance) or some man will buy me one (obese chance).
  12. I have always wanted to go white water rafting, it seems like the ultimate fun adventure. Sometime soon I think I will rally up a bunch of my friends and head over to Sagana and have a go at the rapids.
  13. I have secretly been longing to do those star jump things outside malls like Junction, but they are used mostly by kids and I would not wanna make a fool outta myself, because I am sure at that precise moment people I know will emerge from nowhere lol. But I will give it a try once my friend comes home to visit : ) I have also wanted to enter that big plastic bubble outside prestige parking lot upstairs. I think I need to kidnap my nieces and nephews, they can be my golden ticket.
  14. I would love to go all Coyote Ugly and dance on top of a bar. I need to be sober in order to be able to manoeuvre up there, but I need the liquid courage to get up there in the first place, anyhoosmu it must be done someday soon.
  15. This may never happen, but my dream is to meet JayZ. All I can do is pray he will one day feel the need to come to Kenya or East Africa and then I will do whatever it takes to make sure I see him.
  16. I have to go to a casino again. I have only been to one once, and I loved it, and I discovered why gambling is an addiction, but I just need to back there once more and try my luck on the slot machines.
  17. I have always wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride at The Mara or wherever else they have it.
  18. This random thought has just entered my head; I would love to crash grapes with my feet at a vineyard. Are there vineyards in Kenya???

So far these just seem to be fun things I would like to do, you know, the meal I will eat using a big spoon. I wouldnโ€™t say they are things I would feel mortified about if I did not do them before I died, except maybe number one ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I would feel fulfilled and happy if I did these things so somehow I will embark on a mission to fulfil them one way or another.

This was actually a fun exercise coming up with this list, feel free to share what is on your bucket list.

  1. Hey missy! You have been M.I.A thought i’d check up on you. I love your list for me esp No. 18. Ive secretly wanted to do that esp after watching some romantic movie, where the couple did the same.
    Oh and NO. 2 is def on my list.

    I hope you have been well.
    XX

    • Ola ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for checking up ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m peachy, hope you are good too.
      I saw the grapes thing from a Keanu Reeves movie.
      As for number 2, you have practically achieved it with AfroElle, infact you should use that to scout for jobs in magazines because it is such a great reference, you are doing a great job, that goal will be achieved in no time!

  2. Pingback: This is it.

  3. yes david beatty and jim chuchu make beautiful pictures…lol on the crushing grapes thing..you are a closet romantic!! ๐Ÿ™‚ but your list is amazing!! and I concur on a lot of them… star jump rrrreeeeaddddyyy ๐Ÿ™‚ of cos at night ya??hee hee..

    • Do you know there is also an actor called David Beatty?? That discovery even made me confused when writing the post.
      Wanting to crush grapes has nothing to do with romance, I just want to feel the grapes as I smash them with my feet.
      It’s good your already prepared for the star jump, we will discuss those details for scheduling ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Ohhhhh, No. 10. I love to take beautiful pictures! I had always wanted to have my photos taken by David Beatty (I imagined it would cost me an arm and a leg, and I was willing to skip paying my rent for those awesome photos). I totally relate! I am still dying to have gorgeous photos of me taken, and I hope it will be sooner than later. I digg your bucket list ma! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I am reading through the bucket list and I’m thinking …niiiice! haha no.1 *wink* I shall not say much. But I still think you’re a hidden hopeless romantic…I mean who thinks of crushing grapes with your feet as much as you deny :p
    2,4,12, 14 are the ones I wouldn’t mind at all… Now I think I should start thinking of my bucketlist…sounds like interesting thought…lol

    • Ya’ll are tripping, I do not understand how crushing grapes makes me a closet romantic!!! First up, I want to do it alone, 2nd that would just be a very messy activity, and finally where does the romance come in???
      You should make a bucket list, it makes the world seem as if it has endless possibilities.
      And I need to add that I must go to Atlanta and go have chicken and waffles ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Do. That and getting a domain are very much within reach like right now. A trip to Sagana too will take you just one hour. How about you do those three by end of this month?

      • I do not have anyone to drag along to Nyayo to accompany me, and I cannot go by myself.
        As for the domain, I should start by asking you, who is hosting you?
        Sagana is within reach, I guess it is just to rally up people to go there sometime soon now that this month has many holidays.

  6. *jumpsontobandwagon crushing grapes with feet has a romantic notion attached to it ๐Ÿ™‚ although if u plan on doing it alone i guess that’s diff.

    ooh definitely 7,8,9,12,13,14,16,17
    but do i say ๐Ÿ™‚ fun times ahead girlie ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    • okay I think I have already refuted that romantic stuff ya’ll are talking about so I won’t do it again lol
      but yeah i hope I get to do most of the stuff here..

  7. Oopsie sorry I took so long to reply. I’m hosted by a friend in the UK. I have no details whatsoever! Details of the hosting that is. omg.

    But holler when you’re ready for hosting. We shall snoop around and have a solution in a few short minutes.

Funny how i can relate to many things above,being published,a car(Rav 4J being my choice),oh and i wonder what you are waiting for to monetize your blog with over 100,000 hits,i started just a while ago and with very little traffic,i am already seeing some $ though from various places i write.One more thing,cant find your about page,i stumbled on your blog and iam already falling in love. Would have wanted to unravel the mystery the way almost every woman wanted to know who Oyunga Pala was after his provoking and a times annoying articles on man talk. Keep up.
