Life List

They’ve been popping up everywhere lately, and with all the introspection I’ve subjected myself (and you) to over the past months, I decided just to make the damn list already!

So – here it is: 50 things I want to do/learn/see/accomplish. As I accomplish, I’ll cross them out. A couple things that I’ve already done were awesome enough to include on this list pre-crossed-out. I update this list regularly – take off things that I no longer care about and add things that become priorities…
