My 36 for 36: Exploring Items 19 – 27

by Scott on June 23, 2015

The other day, I got Up, Close and Personal with items 10-18 that made My 36 for 36: The Final List. Today I am going to explore items 19 – 27.

Develop My Lifetime Bucket List

This is the second year that I have put together a list like this and I have a feeling that it may not be my last. So, I thought making a Lifetime Bucket List might be a good idea to collect all of the items that I’d like to experience and store them in one place.

Have you created your Lifetime Bucket List? What’s on it?

Watch a Sunrise and a Sunset in the Same Day

As I write this, it is June 23 and I have to admit that I have already accomplished this item. When I selected this item, I thought to myself, “what better day to watch the sunrise and sunset than the longest day of the year, Summer Solstice… right? This pics are below…

Buy a Stranger’s Meal in a Restaurant

I’ve done this before and love asking to remain anonymous and watch the table look around trying to figure out who was behind it. Looking forward to doing it again!

Stay Silent for 36 Hours Straight

That’s right! Completely silent! I think this is going to be harder than I anticipate.

Maybe I should just go on another road trip… hmmmm :)

Hold an Animal that Frightens Me

This shouldn’t be difficult to find an animal. Secretly, I am creeped out by a bunch of different animals, especially insects. I can’t stand that feeling of something crawling on you… yuck! Gives me the creeps just thinking about it.

What animal or animals frighten you?

Build a Snowman Taller than Me

Before anyone else says it – “building a snowman taller than me shouldn’t be too difficult. Maybe I should stop by the local elementary school and ask some kids in Grade 4 to help me out!” It’s funny because I’m short! :)

Run a Half Marathon

I’ve run a bunch of Tough Mudders, Spartan Races, Mud Hero’s and a number of other races… so why does Run a Half Marathon make my list? Well, truth is that I hate running! I find it excruciatingly boring. That’s why I run obstacle races because the obstacles break up the running. To run a half marathon will mean that I will have to challenge myself mentally to push through the boredom.

I’ve already signed up for the Avengers Half Marathon in Disneyland in November. Anyone want to join me? It’s almost sold out so you better act soon!

Make a Difference in Someone Else’s Life

At this point, I don’t really know what this one looks like; it’s more of a feeling I’m looking to accomplish. I’m just going to trust that I will know when it happens.

Learn to Swim

This was on the list last year too but I don’t feel like I got to a point where I feel it was adequately accomplished. Better get a new speedo and get to work!

Tomorrow, I will finish up with items 28-36.
