I've seen a few of you doing these lists so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon. A few of these are going to take years so I gave myself just over 7 years to complete this list.

1. Get a passport
2. See the Grand Canyon
3. Visit the town my maternal grandmother was born in
4. Take Tai to my alma mater
5. Visit the Louvre
6. Drive across the country
7. Partake in a Japanese Tea Ceremony (preferably with my mother in law or in Japan)
8. Visit Ireland
9. Go on a cruise
10. See the Northern Lights
11. Go on a safari in the Serengeti
12. Go to MoMa
13. Eat sushi in Japan
14. Go to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame
15. Go to DisneyWorld
16. Go to Australia
17. Attend Mardi Gras in New Orleans
18. Walk along the Great Wall of China
19. Stay in a luxury suite in Vegas
20. Go to Hawaii
21. Complete the 1001 books list
22. Get my Master's
23. Bake and decorate a cake
24. Learn how to swing dance-really swing dance
25. Buy a house
26. Get out of debt
27. Ride a Harley
28. Get a tattoo!
29. Make a will
30. Maintain contact with my brother
31. Plan a kick ass 40th birthday for Tai
32. Learn to sew
33. Get my own web domain
34. Host a dinner party
35. Meet my father in law and Tai's brothers and sisters
36. Drive a convertible
37. Win big in Vegas
38. Finish embroidering the pillow I started 8 years ago
39. Bowl a perfect game irl not on the Wii
40. Learn enough HTML to customize my blog
41. Ride a mechanical bull

Damn that was daunting! It was difficult to complete the whole list. I don't think it's something you should do in one sitting like I did. Tai thinks some of those are a stretch but still possible. All of these are things I've never done before but have wanted to do. I think it will be fun to work on completing these. I'll of course give my progress periodical.


  1. I've always wanted to visit Ireland too.

    And maybe we can work together to learn enough HTML. I know a touch but after a while it makes me brain hurt. I have no idea how computer programers do it.

  2. this list is way better than me. lol


Shiny! I love comments.
