I knew I didn’t throw this away! I finally found the life list I had mentioned in my Beach-bound, baby post last month.
One late night at 5:01 Downtown, my friend, Geoff, and I decided to make “Life Lists,” a written compilation of things we wanted to do before we died, known better today as the “Bucket List.” We were inspired by a customer who mentioned she was going to see Elton John and Billy Joel on tour together – we thought that much talent in one concert was “life list” special.
Classicly written on register receipt paper, you can see below what I wanted out of life at age 22.
I can say I’ve done #3 (though I want to write more than that travel guide); I can count #4 even though Harrisburg isn’t a “big city.” Dirty martinis and margaritas came easily – at the time of this post, I primarily drank beer and thought wine made me “tired.” I knocked out #8 in 2006 when I was published in US Airways Magazine with a feature on Hershey and Harrisburg. Still waiting on #9, but I may get the chance to brew a beer with Artie at Appalachian Brewing Company in time (hopefully) for the next SaraBozich.com Happy Hour.
All this said, I think it’s time for a Life List update. I’m going to challenge myself (and my contributors) to share our “Life Lists, circa 2011.”
