On bucket lists

One of my favorite things about myself is that I have a bucket list. Occasionally I can be forgetful, and sometimes I don't follow through on personal projects like I wish I would. But my bucket list is very important to me, partially because I love lists, and partially because there are a lot of things I want to accomplish. I fully acknowledge that I probably won't get to do all of these things, but I like to be reminded of my dreams. And I've got about 30% done already! Although the list is a work in progress, and I add things just as often as I check them off. So here's a peek into what I want to do before I die, and what I've already accomplished!

(Note: for the most part, travel is not included. There's too many places I want to go, the list would quickly get out of hand. This is a list mostly of activities.)
