Bucket List (Part I)

Bucket List.....get it?
Sometimes I make lists to help me get organized, sometimes I make lists to make me feel like I'm organized, and sometimes I make lists because I don't want to forget about something.

To the best of my knowledge I've never made a "bucket list".  If you don't know what a Bucket List is, I'll just have to refer you to a movie by the same name.

I've never seen the movie, which is odd since I like both Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, but maybe someday.  No, I'm not going to put watching the Bucket List on my Bucket List.  That would be funny in a Meta sort of way though, wouldn't it.

For the record, I don't think everything on a Bucket List has to be "good" and "positive", and some things can be pretty effed up, but I'm not judging and I hope you don't either.  Here are 10 items for my Bucket List.  If I was making a generic Bucket List I'd be proud to say some things would already be checked off.  These are presented in no particular order.


  1. Fly a plane
  2. Earn my MBA
  3. Earn a Doctorate (honorary degree would still count)
  4. On the same day see the Sun rise over the Atlantic and set over the Pacific.
  5. Salt the Earth of my Enemy so that nothing will grow there (some old-school vengeance)
  6. Meet someone with my exact same name (Christopher James Stogdill)
  7. Take my wife to see where I lived in Germany
  8. Walk in the Vierdaagse again.
  9. Pay my respects to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
  10. Hold $1,000,000 in my hands
