Hannah's Bucket List 1.0

My pals and I at Folkehøgskole have been talking about life, old age and death. Some 2 am discussions included how we want to die and what we would like to do in our old age. As an old lady I would like to work at an op shop, knit, make marmalade, and take the occasional outing to a night club just to scare the young folk. Of course if I am a spinster I will live with Alex Taucher in an old wooden house in Fremantle too. As for my death, I would either like to die really peacefully i.e. in my sleep or really epicly, like being eaten by a lion or attacked by a kangaroo. At least my friends and family would have a cool story to tell people. My friends and I have even decided to be written into each others wills. I get Sigrunn's hand knitted beanie if she dies before me. She will get my computer. Let me know if you would also like to have some of my stuff.

Have you noticed how I love to make lists? Here is a list of some of the things I would like to do before I die. My list is here to be added to, hence the one point zero. Please tell me if you think there is something I should add.
