  • decidida74 says:

    Good luck with your bucket list!

  • willowbatel says:

    Omg you are a super freak hahaha (that wasn’t meant in a bad way). Just make sure you aren’t doing those drugs while you’re with an older person. You want to have your wits about you.
    That was an interesting and quick read. I was surprised to find I was suddenly in the 80s. Should be very fun hearing how all of these work out.

    • nobodyouknow says:

      Hahaha, according to me, the word ‘freak’ can never be used in a bad way 🙂 Don’t worry, I wasn’t blessed with stupidity like so many people my age, I’m going to do the drugs responsibly (lol, sounds like such an oxymoron!)… I’m going to do them purely to explore my mind, not to go on some drug-fuelled frenzy. And I’ll be sure to do them in a controlled environment. Thanks mom… Lol! 😀

      Quick read? Certainly wasn’t a quick write. Thought I’d never finish!

      • willowbatel says:

        You’re welcome dear! Don’t forget your bag-lunch! *sigh* They grow up so fast.
        I know! These lists take forever. I think it took me about two hours to write mine. I couldn’t think of hardly anything I wanted to do, haha.

        • nobodyouknow says:

          Hahaha, I should have put finishing the list as one of the items so that I can feel more accomplished 😀 Have you been crossing off the stuff you’ve done? Hmmm? [insert another old lady lecture here, complete with finger-wagging]

          • willowbatel says:

            I’ve crossed off a few things. Not that many really. Maybe a dozen. A lot of the things I want to do require my mothers permission though, which is really kind of annoying because I would like to be able to just get to work in my yard and set it up how I like.

            • nobodyouknow says:

              Is your mother uncooperative? The pictures of your yard look pretty (though I know exactly nothing about plants), so shouldn’t she be more than willing to let you work your magic on the yard? 🙂

              • willowbatel says:

                She pays the bills, so she gets to be the dictator. It’s VERY annoying. If it were up to me, we’d have no dirt visible and there wouldn’t be a lawn. But whatever…
                And thank you.

  • iquitelikethat says:

    loving the list, I’m so creating my own.
    and thanks for sharing the banned books lists, I’m definitely going to read all of them 🙂 guess their banning plan backfired since people are reading them because they’re banned!
    but on a serious note, I can’t stand when books etc. are banned, what happened to freedom of speech! We’re not in China where things are censored (although that’s completely wrong too).

    good luck with the list.

    • nobodyouknow says:

      I know, right? Just makes the books that much more attractive! Borrowed 2 of them from the library today, can’t wait to get started 😀

      Freedom of speech is absolutely necessary! It gets to me so much too 😦

  • Mindless Rambler says:

    Good Luck!

  • Cissy says:

    wow…thats a shizz load of stuff to do…but I’ve managed to do most of the little ones in the last two years randomly so it propbably wont be as hard as it looks at first =]

    why’s no. 23 in red though?

    • nobodyouknow says:

      I know, right? Turns out 101 things are kinda many 😮 So far it’s not TOO hard, but I know I’m really going to have to fight with myself to do some of it.

      It’s in red ’cause I did it 🙂 🙂

      • Cissy says:

        Are you even slightly impulsive? Cause that helps alot!! And doing it on your own too, then no one can talk you out of it 😉

        I know most of the stuff on your list is personal, but I’ve done 38 of them already =]

        Ahhh so the red ones are done…. I’ll be monitoring this list so 😉

        • nobodyouknow says:

          38 huh?? I can make my guesses 🙂 But I’m sure I’m wrong on some of them

          Yup, I’m completely impulsive. I think that’s why writing this list was so hard – I hate planning ahead. But I wrote the things that would probably happen with or without the list. Some of the stuff though – like going vegan and drinking water – I’d never ever do. So the list should make my life ‘better’ I guess 🙂

          • Cissy says:

            oooo guesses huh? 😉

            vegan I could never do, but the drinking water part is easy enough in hot weather if you surround yourself with it =]

  • You finished it! I’m so happy to have a part in inspiring you!
    Your list is very interesting, there’s some really great goals on there, fun ones, obscure ones, deep motivational ones…it’s like you’re on the cusp of a revolution. Good for you! I look forward to reading your successes!

    • nobodyouknow says:

      You had a HUGE role in inspiring me – both your list, and your blog itself 🙂

      What kind words about my list, oh my 🙂 I’d expected ‘crazy’ and such-like words

  • uaz truly says:
