What's your 'bucket list' for 2008?

January 01, 2008|By CHRIS COPLEY

New Year's Day is a time to look over one's life and consider resolutions or goals to accomplish in the upcoming year.

People of any age can benefit from setting goals. When the Pulse team met during Christmas break, we talked a bit about the upcoming movie, "The Bucket List," in which two men set out to accomplish the things they always wanted to do before they died.

None of us has a terminal disease, as the "Bucket List" protagonists have, but we all have goals. So here are the 2008 "bucket lists" of Pulse writers.
