Reverse Bucket List

Hi everyone! A while back on the blog I wrote a post called 25 Things I’d Like To Do which is essentially a bucket list. I was browsing online recently and came across the idea of a ‘Reverse Bucket List’ where you create a list of the interesting things you’ve already done. I have come up with 22 seeing as that’s my age. Enjoy!

1. Join a choir – I was part of two during my school years.

2. Take part in a spelling bee – I came third. The word that undid me was battalion. I still have the word list and jar of Vegemite as memories.

3. Sing in a school talent quest – I was 14 and sang Issues by The Saturdays.

4. Place first in school subjects – Subjects include French, Accounting, Media Studies and Health.

5. Speak French – I’m not fluent but I can hold basic conversations and translate phrases.

6. Get followed by Britney Spears on Twitter – It was around the release of Femme Fatale. I tweeted her about the album and next thing I know she followed me.

7. Own a MAC lipstick – I’ve got 9 to be precise.

8. Pass my learner licence test – I passed on July 5 2016!

9. Have my first kiss.

10. Tell someone special I love them.

11. See Ellie Goulding in concert – I’ve seen Ellie twice (2014 and 2016) and she is amazing!

12. Start a blog – Chanelle Hayley is 3 years old next month!

13. Fly on a plane by myself – It was only a short journey but a few years ago I probably wouldn’t have done it.

14. Win money in a casino.

15. Receive a birthday tweet from Shane Filan – It was for my 17th birthday in 2012.

16. Buy an iPhone.

17. Upload me singing online – I have uploaded snippets to Instagram as well as full length videos to YouTube.

18. Never dye my hair – I’m proud that my hair colour is all natural.

19. Pass my Diploma in Communications (Applied) with straight A’s.

20. Have a makeup drawer – I did a makeup clear out at the start of 2016 and it’s nice to have a dedicated space for my makeup and to keep it all organised.

21. Discover my passion – Singing/music.

22. Open a savings account and contribute regularly – I have always been a saver rather than a spender and every payday I transfer money into my savings account. I get bonus interest at the end of each month which is also an incentive.

I hope you liked this post! Feel free to share a few things you’re proud of or things you have crossed off your bucket list!

P.S. Don’t forget to leave any questions in the comments section of *THIS POST* for my upcoming blog Q&A! Alternatively you can tweet any questions to @chanellehayley_

    Well done on loads of these, Especially not dying your hair, I can barely go a month without changing mine! I used to be a saver, but since buying our house my savings have all been used up on home renovations and getting married, I haven’t put a penny in my savings account for months and it’s all been drained. Hopefully by the end of the year I can get back to regular savings again!

      I try to save and prepare for when the adult times come e.g. buying a car, travel, hopefully getting married one day myself! Sometimes things crop up and you never know when lol. I’m pretty sure they don’t make hair dye in my natural hair colour so I’d never get it back if I changed it 😦

    Oh this is a great idea!
    You’ve done so many interesting things.
    I really enjoyed singing and joined choirs up until I was in highschool – then I became self concious about my singing voice. 😛
    So cool you can speak French – you should come visit Canada, it’s one of our official languages.
    Very rare to have virgin hair in this day and age! I dyed and highlighted my hair for a little while and it’s impossible to maintain so I let it grow out.
    Can’t believe how quickly time flies – your blog will be 3 so soon?!

      There’s probably loads more I could have added but I think this list represents me well 🙂 French is such a beautiful language, can you speak it? I know I’d never get my hair colour back if I changed it. It doesn’t feel like 3 years to be honest!

    That’s awesome that you got all those things accomplished 🙂 It kind of makes me want to do one. This year I’ve tried to do as many new things as I can and one of the most memorable experiences was when I went kayaking :).
