I'm glad I did this.  It made me see there's still tons of stuff I want to do with my life.  I have a tendency of obsessing over huge future goals and ignoring smaller, more fllfilling, goals. 


  1. Oh wow, this is a great but long list. I loved reading about what you've done or want to do until I reached about number 40, then I started loosing focus.It's also funny that you want to do the things I've done (since I'm European) and vice versa :)

  2. Some things just lend themselves to be stolen. I might have to snatch it from you one of these days... and tell everybody about how eating caviar made me sick and I had to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance.

  3. Very interesting, I will have to steal this too!
