Bucket List

You know you have one...

Whether it's a real pen to paper list you wrote during a poignant moment of your life, or is a stack of travel books on your matter what shape it takes, I bet you can think of a few things. 

Bucket List     
  • a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime

I came across Corrin's blog: Oh hey, what's up? and found her 40x40 list.  I'm not ambitious enough to put an age restriction on my list, so consider mine open-ended.  It includes a little bit of everything, from skill-building and random fun to full on passport-style travel.  This list will surely evolve and grow; but I'm hoping that I'll remember to actually do these things or start making plans to do them.
