Wow! It has been a while since I updated this thing ... oops. It's been playing on my mind for a few nights so I thought I'd make today the day that I provided some updates, and remind myself of what bucket list items I still need to do before the end of the year. So, here's my original list with the achieved ones bolded ...
1) Talk in a silly helium voice.
2) Have afternoon tea in an exclusive hotel.
3) Cook on a campfire.
4) Go jet-skiing.
5) Reach a GamerScore of 25,000 on Xbox.
6) Eat in a revolving restaurant.
7) Watch all of the Star Wars movies.
8) Kiss on a fairground ride.
9) Get high in Amsterdam.
10) Eat fruit straight from a tree.
11) Make a candle.
12) Learn to pole dance.
3 down, 9 to go!
'Reach a GamerScore of 25,000 on Xbox was achieved with the State of Decay 2 game ... bloody hell was I addicted. I did that typical thing of playing something until I'm absolutely sick to death of playing it though ... since I got the achievement I've not been back on it; the screamers and ferals may have frightened me too much too ... shh.
'Eat fruit straight from a tree' I actually achieved by accident; not really remembering that it was one of my goals for this year. My mam bought a kumquat tree for her patio and told me to try the fruit ... at first I thought she was trying to poison me as I didn't know they were definitely edible, but a quick google told me I'd be fine. They're basically like tiny oranges that taste like lemons ... they definitely turn your face! Google also told me that you should really eat the rind too as the sweetness of the rind is meant to counteract the bitterness of the flesh; tried this, don't recommend. The rind wasn't sweet at all, and IMHO didn't complement the taste of the flesh. But hey, I gave it a go, and that's what this is all about!
The biggest goal achieved so far this year has been 'Get high in Amsterdam' which I achieved when I went there for my birthday in February. There's a separate post dedicated to this one, check it out here.
So technically speaking, I'm behind by 2 goals if I'm still aiming for a goal per month. Hopefully I can get a couple more of the silly easy ones in during lockdown!
