The Bucket List: Day One

“Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman starred in the Bucket List, a movie about two men who compose “bucket lists—things they want to do before kicking the bucket—and then who set off to fulfill their goals.”

Compose your own bucket list for entry in The Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life. See the next page for an example.

Here are some of Gallagher’s:

*The fort I built with Mitch Zusman when I was eight

*The local 7-11, where countless Slurpees, Lemonheads, and comic books were consumed

*Bob’s Big Boy restaurant—where we hung out in high school after Friday night games

*Lifeguard tower number 4 at Huntington Beach

*Kaneohe Lane, the street that saw countless numbers of neighborhood football games

*My “dunkball” basketball court in the driveway of my home

The Neighborhood Spot: Day Two

In Writer’s Notebook: Select one spot in your neighborhood that you will always remember.

Make a giant “T” chart in your WN to record why you like the spot.

On left side of “T,” recall memories, dialogue, and details.

On the right side of “T,” consider why that spot holds a special memory.

Use what you wrote in the “T” chart to write an entry for Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life.

Childhood Games Day 2

In Writer’s Notebook, write about how one game from your list taught you something beyond the game itself.

“For example, playing hundreds of hours of dunkball (basketball on a court with a lowered rim) taught me how to pass, dribble, shoot, and defend, but it also taught me much more. It taught me about the value of teamwork. It taught me to accept both victory and defeat graciously (albeit gradually). Most important, it taught me that if I wanted to keep pace with my peers, I had better practice, practice, practice. Playing hours of dunkball taught me the value of preparation as well as how to work under pressure.”

A Watermark Event Day 1

“Sticks have long been planted in shorelines to measure the depth of tides. When the water recedes at any given spot, it leaves a mark on the stick, indicating how high the previous tide reached. Long after the water is gone, the mark on the stick—the watermark—remains.”

Watermarks are events in our lives that leave marks on us.
