Things to do before I die…

May 12, 2009 in about me,bucket list

I have always wanted to create one of these lists. As of recent, so many people have been posting these. I have actually created one previously, but for the first time I am making my (semi) public.

Some may call this a “bucket list” but I prefer the “list of things to do before I die.” (mostly because I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie).

I’ll be sure to add to this and keep it updated from time to time.
