The OC Bucket List.  A phrase coined by myself and a friend.  A some what ironic term, but it still holds value.  OC stands for Orange County, which is where I grew up.  No, not Orange County California, Orange County Indiana.  A small, rural area, with nothing but rolling hills and corn fields.  It’s easy to grow up in an area like this, and feel like there’s absolutely nothing here.  But there’s beauty all around, we just get desensitized to these things.  So despite the desolate nature of your surroundings, I’m sure there are fun things to do, and interesting things to see.  So here are some things I want to see before I begin a more serious journey.




The Impossible List is a list of things you might have always wanted to do, but may have seemed impossible at one point in time.  My list is going to be pretty ordinary compared to most, and quite mundane in some ways.  Only because I have really never left the town I grew up in, never left my comfort zone.  But anyways, here goes.
