Are These Things on Your Bucket List?

Find out how a YouTube video became the seed of compiling the ultimate bucket list. What’s on your list?

Now I don’t know about you, but I’m quite a fan of YouTube.

Checking out all the uniquely interesting content that creatives upload on the daily to the platform – for me – is quite captivating.

I am always amazed by how fascinating and entertaining some people’s lives are.

And so the other day I was browsing through the Home Page – as you do – and a video of Yes Theory popped up.

With an intriguing title and a captivating thumbnail, I clicked on it.

So what was the video that lead me into not only watching that video in particular, but then also searching their channel for other content to consume?

Quite simply, they went around asking strangers what they would do in their final 24-hours to live.

There was a catch to the video though.

You see, they weren’t ‘just’ asking strangers how they would go about living the last 24-hours of their lives.

Oh no, they were trying to locate and source a person with the most specific and extravagant way to spend their final day on earth.

It took them a while, but they eventually found the perfect subject for the video.

So this got me thinking, what are some of the cool things that a person can do in their lifetime?

So I thought I’d put down a few ideas that I came up with.

Except I don’t want for this list to be purely based on my primitive imagination, I truly want for us to compile the most comprehensive bucket-list out there.

But alas, here are some of the ideas that I thought up:

I WANT TO KNOW FROM YOU:

What items do you want to be added to this list?

15 Types of Students

One LIST of all the main TYPES of STUDENTS found here. Come take a look to see which type of student you are. Every class has at least one of every type.

The vibe at varsity is unlike any other. The energy and overall atmosphere is electric. Everyone feeds off of the unique traits that students bring to the university environment.

But the abundance of multiculturalism isn’t the only part that contributes to this lively environment. 

Every student brings with them their own life-story, views& opinions and passions.

University has a myriad of different personas that – quite honestly – can be tricky to register and understand.

So here are some of the easy to recognize categories that you’ll be sure to identify in no time:

1. PARTY-ANIMAL

So, you’re at University now.

The cultural diversity is immense.

Yet everyone has a common priority: getting a degree?

Wrong.

Every rule has its exceptions.

And so – ladies and gentlemen – introducing to you the PARTY-ANIMAL.

This type of student is a master of the art of getting ‘’lit’’. They know where all the best booze-deals are and when every happy-hour is.

If you’re looking to have a good time, be sure to bring along this contact of yours.

2. THE STUDY-BUG

Somewhat contrary to the previous type, the study-bug is all about the books.

Be it rain or sunshine, day or night, you can be assured that this type is snuggled away somewhere with their books and a mug of hot coffee, or tea.

3. SPORTS MODE

On the note of dedication and commitment, we also have the athlete who is an all-out guru when it comes to their area of specialization.

These talented individuals have to be commended on their ability to pull off a seemingly impossible juggling act.

4. UNICORN DEGREE

These students are definitely given a hard time with the ‘stigma’ they supposedly carry.

They are stereo-typically seen as the punchline of the joke when it comes to the demands of their degree.

BUT we all know that every degree is certainly challenging.

Whether said in jest or not, the stereotype packs a punch.

5. IDK

Ahh yes, this type is an interesting one indeed.

How so? They simply don’t truly know what is going on.

These are the students that don’t really have a reason to be at university, but have joined anyway because of the relationship between societal norms and FOMO.

6. ROCKET-PROPELLED HAND

If ever you have questions, turn to this individual.

They can quickly be identified in any given lecture: no sooner has the professor’s question been posed, and their hand is already launching into the atmosphere.

7. CURIOSITY APPARENTLY KILLED THE CAT

If there is anything that can stop the momentum of a lecture – dead in its tracks – it’s this individual.

Ever reached that point of stalemate in an explanation to a toddler?

i.e. ‘’But why?’’

These creative humans are categorized by their innate ability to leapfrog to tangents that are by no means connected.

8. 1 WEEK IN ADVANCE

Got a deadline for a months-time?

For those of us that are of the typical student type, we will wait until the 3rd week before even thinking about the assignment.

But not this type. Before you can blink your eyes, their completion& submission of the assignment will all be in the past.

10. THE SOLITAIRE

In fact, there is a conspiracy theory about this type:

Remember the IDK student?!

Well, rumor has it that THE SOLITAIRE and IDK are the same person

It makes sense that they wouldn’t know what was cracking if they constantly gaming in class.

11. CANTEEN SERGEANT

Why make your own food when you can buy it on campus?!

Don’t expect a dinner invite from this student anytime soon – take-outs are their M.O.

This genius individual has managed to successfully re-invent the stink-bomb.

And it all starts with their tuna-filled lunchbox being opened in class.

15. the wardrobe-wizard

Okay, now this student definitely didn’t get the memo.

Varsity is not a fashion show.

But that wont stop this person from dressing to impress.

No matter the weather forecast, you can sure of a 100% chance of catching them in their Sunday best.
