After reading all the submissions , I was actually able to check off some items that continued to appear and that has made me realize how lucky I have been... true love found...check. Kids... check... own a home... check. made a difference in some ones life (if you count pulling him out of the American River after a car accident in March...damn that water was cold!)...check.

As for me.. married 18 years, 3 kids, raised catholic (don't wear the club jacket anymore) Silicon Valley born and raised, but not in the industry.
list includes world travel to Italy and beyond, and that little shack on the beach in the Corona commercial. I've already seen the UFO (I think) but would love confirmation... maybe that is what we need to make sure our children will be able to move forward as we have, the babyboomer generation.

Musician/Music teacher
Some mixture of Christianity, Buddhism, Deism, and a little Esotericism.
Politically I hope for a brighter world but all I see is a boot stamping on a human face.... forever.

1) Completely master jazz based improvisation on the valve trombone, trombone, and flugelhorn, and enjoy playing for the rest of my life.

2) Make some really nice recordings with some fantastic players.

3) Find true love, and raise a wonderful family.

4) Move out to the hinterlands and become self sufficient.

5) Become involved in local politics and help improve my community and help those less fortunate than me.

6) Travel the world.

7) Find out the true nature of existence and learn the truth about the way the world really works.

8) Grow spiritually and evolve morally and intellectually as a person, perhaps even attain enlightenment...

9) Greedy one now - I'd like to trade in my yamaha flugelhorn on a Kanstul 1525.

10) Another greedy one, I'd love a Black BMW M5, and a boat, but the boat doesn't have to be anything too fancy, just big enough to have some fun on...

11) Write some books or novels or screenplays.

12) Tell difficult and materialistic people whose company I don't enjoy exactly what I really think of them... oh boy, it would be so sweet.

There's probably loads more but this is what comes to mind right now.

Female age 37
Divorced w/children

After reading through the other lists I truly wonder how many will take the steps to achieve what they posted.
In all seriousness, I watched "The Bucket List" for the first time just a few weeks ago.
A very eye opening movie, and I definitely laughed and cried.
My list seems so simple in comparison. I don't feel the need to do extreme things, or make my mark on the world. It has always been the most simplest of things in life that bring me happiness, and I see no reason to strive for more than that.

10. Fall asleep watching the sunset on a beach.
9.Be successful at my true calling in life.
8. Be in NYC for the lighting of the tree at Christmas, Rockefeller Center.
7. Be in NYC for the Ball drop at Times Square New Years Eve.
6.Be able to walk into the front door of my home..and it really be mine.
5. See the Rocky Mountains.
4. Dip my toes in the Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans.
3. A Yamaha Virago.
2. To see my children grow up and be far more successful than I. Then I know I've done right by them.
1. To die before I reach 65, so that I will not be a burden to anyone in my old age.

25 (till Saturday. Happy Birthday to me!!
Married w/ children
Don't really care for political parties, but I'm a little bit of everything politically.

As a few others have said, I've never really felt the need to make a world-wide change, though I wish something would happen to fix the world's problems. Most of the things on my list are selfish (that's the point right? stuff you want to do for yourself?), but not all of them.

In no particular order:

1. Raise my children to be happy, well-adjusted, and capable of supporting themselves when the times comes and not being dependent on the government or anyone else to survive.

2. Write a novel, preferably one that sells but I'll take what I can get!

3. Learn to cook amazing meals for my family without the smoke alarm going off when I forget to get things out of the oven. (This is on my husbands list too I think. I'm working on it though!)

4. Trade in my crotch-rocket for a cruiser and learn to out-ride my husband.

5. Travel to Ireland and see more than just tourist spots.

6. Travel to Stonehenge.

7. Learn a foreign language and speak it fluently, and preferably be able to remember more than please, thank you, and where is the bathroom.

8. Finish my bachelors degree and go on to law school.

9. Take a road trip through every state in the continental US, preferably by motorcycle but in a car will work.

10. Learn to spot fake people for who they are in the beginning instead of giving them the benefit of the doubt until they ultimately show exactly how fake they are. (Would be a great way to avoid a lot of anger and stress I think.)
