Bucketlist Roundup – The Top 5 Bucket List Achievements of the Week

A couple weeks ago, we announced the new release of the completed goals on Bucketlist and asked for members to send their best and brightest bucket list accomplishments to us! We were astonished – and oh so proud – of all of the awesome things that you all have achieved. So much so that we can’t help but share the inspiration in this weeks bucket list achievements round up (just click on the image to read more or add to your list).


This is really hard for me, especially because I have tight hamstrings, but I’ve worked on it for a while and I’m so excited I did this!  I hope it inspires a lot of people to try new things, have fun and go for their dreams! Add to your list.

An image just doesn’t do this goal justice. Check out the video below!


My first visit at the Cliffs was on August, 2008. I didn’t enjoy it that much since the weather was unpredictable (as always) and we only stayed on the area with the fences. It was clear and sunny that morning but then it started to rain when we got there so we just ended up getting wet. Add to your list.


GISHWHES (Greatest Internet Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen) is a 3-time Guinness World Record breaking scavenger hunt hosted by actor Misha Collins. It is comprised of a global community of 14,000+ of individuals (94 countries and growing!) that “gather” for a week online once a year, form international teams, and then go out into the real world and create “art” the likes of which the world has never seen. Add to your list.


(Total, not all at one time.) Add to your list. 


Dying my hair a crazy color became a bucket list goal when, on Friday, March 28, 2014, I got a call from my doctor telling me that I had Stage 1 Cervical Cancer and would be going in for urgent surgery just four days later (on April 1, 2014). I had been in for my annual check-up, was told that it came back abnormal and required a colposcopy (a biopsy of the cervix) to see just how abnormal it actually was – but I was assured that it was most likely NOT cancer as my annuals have always come back clean… read more

    GISHWHES is life-changing – I cannot recommend it strongly enough! I’ve never had so much fun helping others and being silly as I did last year, so I can’t wait to gish again in 2015. 😀

      Couldn’t agree more Cooper! First time gisher last year– I had the most amazing time! Opened up my whole world! Changed EVERYTHING for me and I’ve never been happier!! Already getting a team together for this year’s hunt! Can NOT WAIT for the craziness to begin! If anyone is even thinking about doing GISHWHES… DO IT!! You won’t regret it!

        I’m so glad you had a similar experience! It really was eye-opening and so much fun – let the countdown to the hunt begin! I’m assembling my team, too, and we’re already so excited. 🙂
