The Buried Life

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE? -THE BURIED LIFE 
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

IT HAPPENED. IT REALLY DID. 
Meet the Buried Life: David Lingwood, Ben Nemtin, Duncan Penn, Jonnie Penn.
Four guys from Vancouver trying to accomplish 100 things to do before they die, also helping others accomplish goals off their list. Their list includes: Asking out the girl of your dreams (Taylor Swift/Megan Fox), ride a bull, playing basketball with the President, start the six o'clock news, , be in a fight, make a million bucks, streaking a field, and crashing a party at the Playboy Mansion. Again, after they cross something off their list, they help others cross there's. Helping a father and son reunite after 17 years, getting a band signed to a record label, finding a home for a son's homeless father. The list of giving continues.

I have been a massive fan of the project since the beginning, and I had the opportunity to hear them speak as guest speakers tonight.

Holy shit. They are that much better.
Just by hearing their stories and what they have learnt in the past years by living and giving, was such an experience. I had the pleasure of meeting them afterwards, and I just want to love everything about them. They are just four friends that are doing rad shit. But that's the thing, they're just everyday people that would stand in front of you in the grocery line.

Start your own bucket list: write it down- let the dreams be tangible ideas, do rad shit, and just fucking do it.

Be kind to others, give back, and don't be a dick.


"But often, in the world's most crowded streets,
But often, in the din of strife,

There rises an unspeakable desire

After the knowledge of our buried life" -Matthew Arnold
