My "To Do" List

In honor of my 29th birthday (today!) I thought I'd finally start a list of things I want to do before I, well, you know. So, here it is. Some of it is taken from a list I made years and years ago. Some of it is new. And I know there are tons of things I've forgotten or not yet even realized I want to do. But, I'll keep adding to it and hopefully keep checking things off. So, without further ado here's my list (in no particular order)...
