Dear T2T: I just saw the movie “The Bucket List” and totally want to make one myself. I was just wondering if you guys could come up with some fun ideas for me and my friends. — Just Doing It

Dear Just Doing It: Bucket lists are becoming really popular these days. Here are a few ideas that you could possibly put on your list.

  • Learn to play golf.
  • Learn to box.
  • Learn karate.
  • Play paintball.
  • Jump off a cliff into water.
  • Learn a new language.
  • Learn to play an instrument.
  • Go scuba diving.
  • Buy a small animal.
  • Go rock climbing.
  • Travel down the coast of California on Highway 101.
  • Get a job.
  • Build something big.
  • Make a list of 20-plus books to read.
  • Make a list of 50-plus movies to watch.
  • Meet someone famous.
  • Make a difference in someone’s life.

There are many different things you can put on your bucket list. Sit with your friends and make the list together. Good luck — and be safe when you start to do the things on your list! — T2T

    I really do not like the focus of this article... in my view, a bucket list should be giving to others so that you can make certain that your life had meaning and that it made a difference that you were here.

    Everything on this letter's list has to do with selfish desires rather than what can be a meaningful giving action. Has anyone heard that saying it is better to give than receive?
