Welcome to my Bucket List

I've decided that I'm cool with only updating this blog every now and again. It's interesting to read back through these blogs so that I can realise that, although it may be at snail's pace, I am making some kind of progress in my life.

Anyway, I thought I'd share with you my bucket list - a list of things I want to do before I die. I haven't done very much of it, but I'm desperately trying to keep myself inspired, so here goes (ones in green are ones I have completed):

1.  Sing in front of an audience of at least one hundred
2.  Make a video with at least one thousand hits on Youtube

Okay, it may only be three seconds long, but I'm on 1002 so far!
