My Geeky Bucket List

A couple of years ago, I was watching a documentary on Carl Sagan discussing the cosmos, and it occurred to me that I really was just a mere spec in the universe, that there were so many things I didn’t understand, and so many experiences I hadn’t had. Most importantly, it made me realise that I had led such a sheltered life up to that point; this needed to change. From that point onwards, I started compiling quite a substantial bucket list, and to this day have around 500 things I want to visit, experience or learn. I’ve since split it into sections. This is my Geeky Bucket list.
