F**k it. You only live once – 51 Things that are on my bucketlist. For now.

Yeah, I know, Yolo is so 2012. Or 2010? I don’t even know. But still, it’s true. You only live once. And because of that, I believe everyone should have a bucket list. No matter if it consist of seeing the world, buying the house with the white picket fence or starting your own business. Everyone has their own dreams and goals. Here are mine, maybe they inspire you.
