There are a lot of things I want to experience in this world. Some of them are easily achievable, but others, they seem like a distant dream. Nonetheless, one can always hope.

Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of good things. And no good thing ever dies.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

I’ll try by best to categorize this bucket list, but some of the items may overlap and fall inside two or more categories. I’ll keep updating the list with new items and strike off old ones once they’re accomplished.
