Ultimate High School Bucket List
Do you want to create the ultimate high school bucket list?
Here are 60+ ideas to add to your bucket list and complete before you graduate!
Everyone says it, but four years of high school really do fly by.
While I am not one of those people who will say that high school was the best years of my life (I’ve definitely had more fun in the past seven years since I graduated high school!) I was able to make some incredible memories and have great experiences during high school.
High school is actually when I created my first bucket list, and I’ve been ticking things off it ever since.
