My Authors Note: 
Learning about and watching The Buried Life has really made me think about my life decisions. As I was growing up I always wanted to create a bucket list but I would always put really unrealistic things because my little mind didn't totally understand the concept. Now that I do I think I have made good decisions with what I want to do before I die. The items I am most excited about completing would be to cage dive with great white sharks, and to teach abroad. Great white sharks fascinate me and to be able to see them up close would be so incredible. Teaching abroad as well is something I would love to experience. I have heard a lot about programs where beginner teachers travel to Europe to teach English to the Elementary students. This is something I for sure want to complete with in the next 5 years of my life. I think having this project has really made a lot of people realize what they want to do and how sometimes we need to push our limits in order to be satisfied with life, and I think that's a good thing. 


  1. Very interesting items on the list! Good pictures as we'll !!

  2. I like the idea to make your bucket list into a game! Will you actually play it and follow through with the item you landed on? The visuals were great! You guys clearly worked hard
