life list.


Life is short. So, I wrote a life list. A list of 100 things I want to do before my time is up. I have been keeping ideas in my phone for a while, just typing them in one by one, here & there. Crossing things off the list that I accomplish, adding more, the list doesn't have to end - I guess.

Life listing is super fun...you should try it.
You will probably learn a lot about yourself.

So, from the simple, (#23)
to the most HUMOROUS (#31)
the now impossible, (#27)
and sometimes extravagant, (#89)
