What is on your personal bucket list?


The Rambler

This week the staff of The Rambler thought about what they want to do before they “kick the bucket.” Read their selections and explanations below.

I would like to go scuba diving at least once in my life. The vast majority of creatures that we see tend to be animals that only walk on land. Additionally, we have a saltwater aquarium at home that acts as a little slice of an underwater habitat right in our house. I think that I would really like to see that sort of thing on a grand scale. Coral reefs are some of the most diverse places on earth, in terms of the number of species living there. Also, actually swimming near animals such as sea turtles or manta rays would be incredibly cool. I haven’t really thought too much about what I would put on a bucket list, but this would probably be first and foremost.

The biggest thing on my bucket list has to be skydiving. Before this year, I would have never considered going skydiving, but Mr. Biebel has forever changed my perspective on it. I’d only want to go skydiving once, and my plan is to go at the end of the year. There’s certainly an aspect of danger that comes with it, but so few people have actually done it. In my opinion, the things that are most worth doing are the things that few people have done. 

Olivia Buckel

My bucket list is honestly mostly empty because I really don’t like to plan my future too much because I don’t want to get disappointed; however, I definitely want to study abroad, live in an apartment with big windows in a city, and try and get some of my work published through a publishing house. I’d also really like to go to a fancy gala one day for a job, go to Europe, and get a cat.

If I could do one thing in the world on my bucket list right now, it would probably be to go shark diving in a cage. I have always loved sharks since I was a young age, and it’s been a goal of mine to go diving with them when I became an adult. Going to Florida a few times, I have seen a few of the sharks there and fell head over heels for being around them. It would be a dream come true to finally get to see one up close and personal. If I had to cross one thing off my bucket list in this day, it would be great to finally swim with sharks.

One item on my personal bucket list is to visit Machu Picchu in Peru. When I was a kid we had a painting of Machu Picchu, and I was always enamored with it. As a result, it has always been a goal of mine to get there. Traveling, in general, is something I really enjoy, but if I could choose any place to cross off the list it would be Machu Picchu.
