Bucket List


Recommended Posts

I thought it would be cool to have a premed/med student bucket list. i know i mad a thread earlier this week about keeping my career plans on a DL, but I feel that this forum is pretty anonymous.


my bucket list

-get into medical or dental school

-have a pet dog

-have a cool car like a mustang (hardtop)

-get a published

-still play baseball on a recreation league, while still being a doctor/dentist

-become a family doctor

-get married and have a wife that will support me in my decisions and will fight my battles with me.

-have a son who i can teach him how to play sports, and i can be that dad i always wanted to have

Dude that is sooooo similar to my goals :eek:

I already was lucky enough to knock one of those out and I don't really feel the need to get published or play baseball.

Other then that it's identical. Always wanted a german shepard and a mustang!

Some day...

It's funny, for being such a goal-oriented person, I can't really think of anything that I feel strongly about having yet to accomplish in this lifetime. There are "nice-to-haves" (eg travel, pets), but I think I could pass on happily any time as long as I am at peace with the kind of human being I am...

(Or maybe I just can't think of anything more profound than trying different types of food :P)

<3 DM

My bucket list is way too long to post on here. I have a notebook at home that has about 10 pages of things to do before I die. I've had it since I was 16, and fortunately the list keeps getting smaller and smaller. Some things I think are really silly (I made this up in high school lol) that I'll post below are:


- go to tribes in atlantic. find medicines, bring them back

- go on the Oprah Winfrey show to talk about the real issues

- eat ontop of a mountain

- publish an article in national geographic about medicine before I graduate (Nope lol)

- have tea at least (yes I underlined it, I was serious) once with Dalai Lama

- meet Michael Jackson and learn to properly moonwalk. Seriously, how do I not know this by now

-travel to every continent at least once

-make sure that family remains important (I have really close ties with my little sis right now)

-knit something other than a scarf... lol

-learn to make souffle

-live in France for a year and hopefully become bilingual

-learn a bit of Dutch and Latvian (where my grandparents are from)

-make beer

-teach someone (I know this is kind of rando... but really anything. I guess I hope that one day I can be a mentor for someone)
