To me, it seems like a completely foreign concept to have anything but a bucket list. I mean, why wouldn’t you want one? Why wouldn’t you want an excuse to use fancy colorful pens? But now I realize that there are, in fact, mixed feelings about having bucket lists, and that’s what I’m writing this post for. I need your opinion!
