5 Steps to Writing the Perfect Summer Bucket List

Not to toot my own horn here, but I think I have a knack for writing lists. And lucky for you, I'm here to tell you how you can be great at it too! Without further ado, here are 5 steps to writing the perfect summer bucket list.

1. Have a Game Plan

Know what you want to accomplish. Is it something internal? (i.e. to be more positive, happy, etc.) Is it just to have fun? Or is it to check off all of the things you wish you had time for during the school year?

2. Write it ALL Down

This may look messy at first, but trust me. You need to do it. Just write.

3. Eliminate Realistically

Now that you have a long list, go through it and think realistically. Can you actually go skydiving in Tahiti this summer? (probably not) Can you actually drive 30 minutes out to visit a café? (YES)

4. Review

This is starting to sound like a post about studying (bleh but also...possible future post? *smirky questioning face*) BUT review your bucket list! Make sure you actually want to do all of these.

5. DO ITTTTTTTT *punches fist to the sky*

And really...that's all there is to it. Hmm...maybe having a passion for writing lists isn't that rare. Believe in yourself and push yourself to accomplish those goals!

Here's my bucket list :) As you can see, I already checked some things off!

What's on your Summer Bucket List?

P.S. Did anyone notice that Classified Closet is now....*drumroll* www.classifiedcloset.COM

  1. I used to do summer bucket list and be so eager to make it true, but somehow I have never fulfilled everything :)) now I create a list, but only in my head what I would like to do :)

  2. I'm literally obsessed with bucket lists! I love the text that you used to create yours. I've been trying to experiment more with writing in different fonts, not just typing them. Congrats on the a.com btw ;) I'm still working on that lol.

    If you're interested, I posted a summer bucket list to my blog, as well: http://bit.ly/1HJ66LS
