Thirteen Things on My Life List
All this talk about life lists made me think I'd share with you 13 things on mine. Some things I've been able to check off. Wha'ts on your Life List?
  1. Ring in New Year's Eve in Sydney, Australia. Check
  2. Ride on the Orient Express.
  3. Plant my feet on every continent. (I've covered North America, Africa, Australia and Europe. 3 More to go!)
  4. Learn to scuba dive.
  5. Get a book published. (Well, I've written the book, publishing is a bit out of my control.)
  6. Learn to surf. (And be able to stand on the board while not getting eaten by a shark.)
  7. Be an extra in a movie.
  8. Live in Europe for a year.
  9. Record one of the songs I wrote.
  10. Try caviar.
  11. Experience a toe-curling, mind-numbing, knock-you-on-your-ass kiss.
  12. Run for office.
  13. See the Taj Mahal.

    scuba diving and the taj mahal would be awesome.

    You are well on your way to getting these all done. It's a great list.

    Katherine said...

    That is such an awesome list! You really gave it a lot of thought. (You must be watching a lot of Ellen.) What is your book about? Fiction or non? The main thing on my life list is to enjoy the moment. Because I move so much, I need to always remind myself to enjoy the current place and take advantage of what the city offers.

    Anthony said...

    Cool list. Maybe you could combine some: Being an extra eating caviar in a movie made in Europe.

    Although the kiss at the Taj may be more fun!

    My list is up, perhaps telling you more than you needed to know about meme. :)

    amy said...

    ooh! love the list. I would like to live in Europe - heck, even visit for that matter. travel in general really!

    I hope you can accomplish everything!

    have a great night!

    Kate Michele said...

    Tug said...

    AWESOME list - I hope you get to do them all, and I get to read about them & see the pictures!!

    Happy TT!

    Candy Minx said...

    Wow, very ambitious list...all sounds incredible. I am surprised after all of your travels you haven't tried caviar yet. it's good, super salty.

    Hey I'm having an art gallery opening over at my blog today.

    Hope you can stop by for a drink and a little visit!

    Cheers

    I haven't written a book but I have planted a tree... let me know when you are living in Europe for a year and I would like a signed copy of your book when it is published! happy tt :)

    YellowRose said...

    That's a great list! I have never done a list, though I have done things that I have wanted to do....I need to write my list though. Thanks....I will be writing that list soon!!! :)

    Curious about your book....that's one thing that is on my list!

    Happy Thursday, mine is up!

    Darla said...

    Well, I've done two of those... Good luck on the publishing--it's a tough business.

    I don't have a life list--I don't even know if there's anything I really want to do enough to put on one. Hmmm. Off to go think about this.....

    Ghost said...

    I've managed #8 and #10 but I've missed out on the rest. Good luck with your list.

    Have a Happy!

    Shannon said...

    Awesome list!

    I've done 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11.

    Have a great Thursday!

    -R- said...

    Caviar is pretty gross, but I don't blame you for wanting to try it. =)

    Norma said...

    Great list. I don't think any of yours would be one mine, but I've accomplished most of what I wanted.

    Thanks for visiting my food triggers.

    Denise said...

    #6 - good luck. It looks like fun, but the shark thing will keep me away. LOL

    Hails said...

    Id love to see the Taj Mahal. Thats definately one on my list of things to do!

    Mines up!

    Happy TT!

    Mama Duck said...

    What a great list! I hope you get to do all these things soon ;). Have a great Thursday, Carmen!

    SheCrochets said...

    I agree, riding the Orient Express would be awesome! Especially if Hercule Poirot was aboard! LOL

    Happy TT! Mine is up, too!

    Kukka-Maria said...

    Ok, ok...I see you put "record one of the songs I wrote," but didn't indicate you had to sing it.

    I'll do it. Don't beg. Desperation has never looked good on you, Carmen!

    TC said...

    Very cool list! the only one of these I have experienced is number 11. LOL!

    Red said...

    Oh, go on, Miss Carmen, make another one true and come to Europe! We can be friends for real, then, instead of just webby friends!

    Goofy Girl said...

    You've got a great list, I don't think i've done any of these! I bet you'll do all of these though and I can't wait to hear about them!

    colleen said...

    I had a hard time making it past the breakers this past weekend at the beach. There were lots of surfers, but it looked so dangerous. I'd rather be reading. I guess going to Hawaii is on my list. I hope I'll get to do more than look at photos of your trip.

    Mine have sand between their toes.

    Lisa said...

    Done the Scuba Diving and running for office. Your list is awesome. Keep going, you'll get that list done!

    Thanks for stopping by my 13!

    Great list of things to do. :) I've currently in the process of doing #8, but I haven't done any of the others on your list.

    Happy Thursday. :)

    Excellent list! Good luck with the other 3 continents, I'm envious of your travels.

    Froggie Mama said...

    I love your list! And I'm impressed of what you have accomplished so far! :) WTG! Hope you are able to check them all off!

    I'd love to step foot on every continent, visit Australia... New Years or not, learn to surf, & be an extra in a moving!! :)

    Dorothy said...

    You are so lucky to have accomplished so much.

    Hang in there for #11. It's totally worth it.

    Sparky Duck said...

    sheesh a list like this is cool and depressing all at once. Goes to show what I might be missing. Ill live vicariously through you!

    Sally said...

    Great list! What a full life you have. And what a great way to enjoy the journey!

    nancy said...

    I have the kiss thing covered. At least you have the book written!

    This is a great list. I have been working on mine...

    Happy T13!

    Cheysuli said...

    Sorry if this comes through again-- but blogger is being strange and kept giving me error messages and sometimes that means my comment got through and others it didn't.

    I do want to make sure you think about the vp for my presidential aim in 2008.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT!

    If you fall off that surf board, you will be the shark's caviar. LOL

    Christine said...

    That's a great list! I need to write my list. I've tried #6 minus the sharks. I'd love to be able to do most of the things on your listAt the top of my list would be livin in Europe, and seeing the Taj Mahal.
    Happy Thursday,Carmen!

    Wow! I wish I've done that much of travelling! All of my life I've only traveled around Asia.

    Have a great thursday! :)

    Renee said...

    You've done so much more than many folks ever get to do in a lifetime. We love hearing about all your travels!

    And never give up on your book.

    Happy Thursday!

    Sarah said...

    I don't have a list! Should I have a list? I think I need to make a list!

    mominprogress said...

    Love this list. I'd like to travel outside the US so bad I can taste it. I'll have to wait until the kids are grown though :)

    Rachel said...

    What a great idea - I'm going to have to think about my own life list!

    Jenny Ryan said...

    Great list! I'm so impressed that you've been to 4 out of 7 continents.

    kailani said...

    Congrats! You've alread done more than most people do in a lifetime! Hey, maybe you can learn to surf when you're in Hawaii! You could also eat caviar on the beach. That would knock 2 items off your list!

    Geggie said...

    Ok, I've done numbers 10 and 11. But, not #11 until I met the love of my life at 29 years old! Three and a half years later, he can still knock my socks off!

    Lisa said...

    You remind me of my husband - he's a DO-er ... loves to go and do things. I am a "read about someone else doing it" kind of person. :) So keep doing and writing and I'll keep reading! :)

    Thanks for stopping by Snarkypants and cheering me up over my lame post! :) I'm glad you don't think it's (too) lame! hehe

    Have a good weekend!

    Melli said...

    WOW! That's quite a list! I've tried caviar -- that's about it. I hated it! Tasted like pure salt tapioca! Ewww!

    angela said...

    I have to ssay when I think of you I think "World Traveler"...and I kind of knew about the songs thing...I hope that works out for you...I bet you have some great ones.

    brendalove@gmail.com said...

    You are truly a woman of the world. I am truly not. I bet we'd have a blast on a visit together...they say opposites are the most compatible friends.

    Sophisticated Writer said...

    Impressed by your list, but, oh well... I have done almost nothing of it.

    I definitely want to get my writings published. Great list. Happy TT.

    The Red Queen said...

    My comment wouldnt go through yesterday so I will try once more. Your list really is giving me call to sit and ponder what would be on my list. I have been living others ideas of the perfect life and forgetting about me. Thanks for reminding me that I have desires too.

    Chelle Y. said...

    Those sound like some great goals!

    Anonymous said...

    Asia will be interesting and fun. Drop me a line if you decide to go to the Philippines :)

    I hope you'll have these things on your list done :) They sound fun and exciting.

    Happy weekend!
