Congrats! You made it to Friday, and it is almost the end of the month. All this contemplation led me to think of goals. That led me to also think of today’s topic: a Bucket List. Have you made yours? I encourage you to consider making one.

Why is it called a Bucket List?

“Etymology. From kick the bucket (“to die”) + list, hence a “list of things to do before you die”. The term was coined by American and British screenwriter Justin Zackham in his screenplay for the 2007 film The Bucket List. … The first item on his list was to have a screenplay produced at a major Hollywood studio.”
