The Bucket List Challenge: What will you cross off your bucket list in 2013?

Welcome to The Bucket List Challenge! Yayyyyy. The challenge only has one simple rule. Answer the question: What will I cross off my bucket list in 2013?

Okay, I haven’t really sat down and thought about my bucket list, but there are a couple of things that I already know I want to cross off this year. Wait, make that three things that I MUST cross off this year.

The first one is related to writing, the second is related to health, and the third is related to my other obsession hobby: blog customization. Read on about the top 3 (for now) on my bucket list. And if you haven’t yet, enter the giveaway for a chance to win a copy of A Writer’s Bucket List!

What I want to cross off my bucket list this year:

Enter a writing contest. This is going to be a real challenge for me because I especially want to submit to a short story contest and I have never finished a short story. One of the items on my bucket list is to write 10 short stories this year. Hah. Pretty big for me, but I have to start learning to write these things. Maybe one of them could be a contest entry, yeah?

Complete the Insanity workout. This has been on my list since last year and I finally started it last Feb 1st. It’s still early in the workout program, but I’m pretty sure I can do this. Yay.

Revamp my blogger design site Color It You. I want to redesign the site and maybe offer blogger templates that I designed. I change my blog layout and design all the time. I think it’s time to take this a step further. I would love to help out other bloggers, whether they’re new or even seasoned owners, by sharing what I’ve learned over the years.

So those are my three little things I want to accomplish this year. What will you cross of your list? :)

  1. Leah, what courage you have to jump off the corporate ship and do your own thing. I have a feeling you are going to knock those 10 short stories out, and more. Look forward to reading them all.

  2. Dropping by from the blog hop… you can totally enter a writing contest this year! That’s a wonderful goal to have. I firmly believe in them… best case scenario you win money, publication, recognition, or who knows what else. Worst case scenario? You pushed yourself to write something. So really, it’s win-win.

    This year I’ll be crossing off passing the 5th level JLPT. More about that on my own bucket list blog. ;)
