To-Do List



I always have a bucket list floating around in the back of my mind, constantly being updated as I learn about new places and new experiences. But I hesitate to label it a bucket list, because that concept seems lofty and something you hope to accomplish. I want to make sure all of these items are completed before I die so I'd prefer to think of it as a to-do list. And my list is in desperate need of some scratch offs!

Since this list is growing at a faster pace than I'm ticking things off, I've decided to jot down my to-dos in an attempt to get more things planned. It's time I get to work! The first five items are most important to me but the others follow in no order.
