The Bucket List For Sixteen Year Olds

Updated on January 29, 2013

Bucket List for Teenagers

Do you have a bucket list? At what age should we create a bucket list? I don't know the answer, but I started my own bucket list when I was 16 years old and continued adding to it as I aged. Right now I am 20 years old. It is difficult to complete some of the tasks on my bucket list because of money, timing, and other factors. I believe I will be able to get more things crossed off my bucket list if I was older or had more $. Its okay because I'm not in a rush. Some of the things on my bucket list are GROSS or may seem gross, but I don't care. :P

Every year I do cross some things off. I like reading other people's bucket lists and seeing what they've got done or seeing what places they've traveled to. If I their ideas interest me then I'll add it to my bucket list. If I don't read people's bucket list then I'll ask them during a conversation. I ask about it because they might have something on their list that we can do together or we might have the exact same things! I love helping people cross things off their bucket list because its something that they really want to do. Some people's bucket list are very simple or funny. Others might be dangerous and living life on the edge. Bucket lists can be emotional or fun. I usually like the fun tasks. An emotional bucket - in my opinion - would be a list for ways to better yourself, make-overs, anger management, weight-loss, etc. I still need to add some emotional things to my list, but I'm still young and silly so I wouldn't know what to put. xD I hope you enjoy reading my bucket list.

The reason why I titled this lens with age 16 is because there were a lot of things that I could not do until I reached age 18 or 21. Those things were getting tattoos, piercings, traveling, hair dye, etc. Other reasons were because my parents didn't let or because I was still in school.
