Boy Going Blind Creates Bucket List Of Sights

Seeing tiny snails and examining chalk under a microscope might seem like small things, but to a Texas boy losing his eyesight they’re bucket list material—along with more standard big-ticket items like seeing the Grand Canyon and Antarctica—of things he wants to see before he goes blind.

Mindfulness And The Bucket List At Museums

When I went to the MoMA, I went not knowing what exactly they had in their collection. I do that with museums — why spoil the fun of discovery? I went to the National Gallery of Art in 2012 and was preoccupied with a Sol LeWitt and a Lawrence Weiner before I rounded the corner and happened upon Tony Smith’s Die, a seminal minimalist artwork that I never dreamed of encountering in person, the kind of artwork that absolutely requires your physical presence in order to actually understand the artwork, and I was floored and overwhelmed by how lucky I felt to be in the same room as this object.

New Item For Your Bucket List: An Ocean Massage

Floating in a calm ocean is super relaxing. And getting a massage is blissful. But what if you could do both at the SAME TIME?? Now you can, thanks to the One & Only Resort on Australia’s Hayman Island. The resort opens in July, and One & Only’s spa is offering a pretty drool-worthy incentive to book some time there: “Ocean Dreaming Massages,” AKA massages performed on the freakin’ ocean. Here’s the description from the spa website: Keep reading »

Do You Have A Cradle List?

The other day, on my personal blog, I confessed to having started a list of things I want to do/accomplish before I have a baby. Someone in the comments section alerted me to a recent episode of “How I Met Your Mother” where such a list is referred to as a “cradle list,” which I thought was a great name for it. So, I’m wondering: Do you have a cradle list, and if so, what’s on it? You don’t have to be in a relationship or even be planning to have kids anytime soon to have such a list – maybe yours might include “find a partner,” or “decide whether I want kids.” Keep reading »

What’s On Your Fashion Bucket List?

After seeing the film “The Bucket List,” I got to thinking about everything I want to accomplish while on this earth. Skydiving, seeing all the wonders of the world, living abroad for over a year: it’s all on my list. But then I started to think about how this could apply to everything in life. Gastronomically, there are tons of delicacies I want to enjoy, like pho in Vietnam, as there are restaurants I want to dine in, like Per Se in NYC. I want to consume all of literature’s classics, cross off all the movies on the AFI 100, and dinner with Anthony Bourdain could quite possibly make me swoon for an entire lifetime. Given my love for fashion, I couldn’t help but apply the same goals to my wardrobe … Keep reading »

Before I Die I Want To …

Before I die I want to” is a cool web project that invites participants to send in Polaroid snapshots of themselves saying one thing they want to do before they die. The project aims to explore the questions about mortality awareness, self-motivation, and what values different societies hold important. The creators hope the project “will create a new dialogue in the realm of sociological art” and “urge people towards thinking about and fulfilling their life goals.” Participants will be contacted in five, 10, 15 and 20 years to see if they’ve accomplished their goals yet. They’ll then be asked to write a short story next to their photo on the website about achieving their dream. “Seeing online that other people are fulfilling their desires will motivate participants to complete their task and write a story of their own.” So, what are some of your life goals? After the jump, ten things I want to do before I die. Keep reading »
