Bucket List Part Uno

I've always been really fascinated with the idea of a bucket list. I tried writing it down, but I lose so many things that the whole "keep a notebook for life" thing didn't work out too well. 
And, hey, you can't really lose the internet, can you? 
okay, bad joke. 
moving on...

Structure-wise, I'm probably going to do about 20 items per post, and this will just be an ongoing thing.  They are in no particular order, just as they come to me. Check under the Bucket List tab to see an updated list at any given time! 

1. Hike Mission Peak in Fremont, CA. It's only a half hour from my house, but an intense and rewarding hike! 
Who wouldn't want that view?

2. Get SCUBA Certified
3. Get CPR Certified
4. Sleep for 15 hours straight. The most I've ever slept is 12 and I want to break my record. Pitiful, I know.
5. Go to Switzerland and buy real Swiss chocolate.

6. Do the Color Run/Color Me Rad Race!
Hopefully this will happen this fall. So excited!
If this does not seem like a TON of fun to you, then I'm sorry. 
We can't be friends. 
Just kidding. 
Bottom line: I want to do this 5k really bad

7. Run a marathon. Anyone who can run 26.2 miles at a stretch has so much respect from me. I want that feeling from myself.

8. Throw a pair of shoes onto phone lines and get them stuck. 
Don't deny it. 
You've always wondered about those too. 

9. Learn to surf!
That was supposed to happen two weeks ago, but we didn't end up going to Hawaii! Next time...
10. Explore the nooks and crannies of San Francisco. 
Even though I've grown up in the Bay Area and I've been to SF more times than I can count,
I want to go beyond tourism, to truly know this city and experience the magic.

11. Eat Macarons
This will happen. Soon. 

12. Sprinkles cupcakes. Again, I've grown up 20 minutes away from the World's first cupcakery, yet I've never been.
Plus I just really want a cupcake right now.
C'est la vie. 
(SEE WHAT I DID THERE? because macarons are French and that was French?
You're right I'll stop now).

13.  Read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
I've heard SO much about it, both good and bad, but I'm just too darn scared to read it right now. 

14. Watch the entire "Fast and Furious" series. 
I've only seen the 5th and that was in theaters, so I'd love to see the rest!

15. Drive down the California Coast, from the beauty that is Oregon all the way down to San Diego and Sea World. 

Not just driving 14 straight hours, but wandering through small towns, checking out the local food. 
Come with me? 

And that just about wraps it up. 

What's on your bucket list? Do we have anything in common? Anything that should definitely be in the next installment? 
Let me know in the comments below!

XO, Hima


  1. Great post, Hima! So happy you started a blog, and can't wait to keep up with your adventures.

    Have a great week!

  2. I have done the Color Run and it is a blast! Make it a priority you will love it! And wet your shirt, the color sticks better!

  3. I guess at my age it's time to start a bucket list but wouldn't know where to start - good luck with yours!

  4. You are never too young to start a bucket list!

  5. i've never had a macaroon. I'm scared to make them. I hear it's hard!

    Watch the Dragon Tattoo movie. I didn't like the book. I didn't really like the movie either, but Scott did.

  6. I want to do a Color Run as well! Great bucket list...I need to make mine. I'm going to do mine at my next birthday.

  7. Hi Hima, this is a great bucket list I would love to do a color run, even if I have to walk it,,,but would love to get COLORIFIED, LOL!!!! Visiting your blog from Crafty Thursday Obsession Party.

  8. Hello!
    Found your blog through Blog Stalking. I've done the Color Run and it was a blast! I also love macarons!!! Definitely a good one to put on your list. I posted about macarons too. :)

  9. bucket list are sooooo important. Justin and I just crossed Italy off of ours. If you have a moment, I'd love if you'd check out my photo diary from our trip. :) xo

  10. Switzerland and macarons! Yes!

  11. Thanks so much for visiting my blog...I love your blog design, it's really sweet! I am totally with you on Macarons and learning to surf! I trained in Scuba diving although haven't been in a looong time, I am definitely a water baby!

  12. This is wonderful. Thanks for stopping over at my blog also.

  13. Hi Hima!
    love your bucket lists...I'd love to run a marathon too and throwing a pair of shoes over the electrical lines sounds fun! thanks for the idea lol! found you at Thursday Favs blog hop by Sew Crafty Angel..following you now via bloglovin'.
    journally yours,

  14. Fun list. And congrats on your new blog. Blogging is so much fun. Just a comment on #8. I have heard, although I am not positive, that shoes over a wire indicate a drug house nearby. HAHAHAHAHA Maybe you want to look it up first. I actually have never looked it up but I think I will now! :)

  15. Great list! Mu husband is doing the Color me Rad race in October, it looks like fun :) Thanks for linking up at Loves on a Thursday!

  16. I love the bucket list! You should def get on #11 & 12, like yesterday! Macarons are my fave!

    I'd suggest signing up with a running group to train for the Marathon. I don't think I would have stuck to the training plan (20 miles on my own, you serious?) had others not been right by my side.

  17. The color run is probably way too fun! I told one of the people throwing colors that it was my best friends birthday (I pointed to her and it was her favorite color) needless to say she ended up half (at least) pink! So fun!

  18. The color run is probably way too fun! I told one of the people throwing colors that it was my best friends birthday (I pointed to her and it was her favorite color) needless to say she ended up half (at least) pink! So fun!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! You probably just made my day :) I do my best to reply to every single one, even if it takes a little while. Make sure you're not a no-reply blogger so we don't get deprived of a wonderful conversation!
