Life List

October 12, 2015

While I was going through old files from last year, I came across a Word document where I’d listed out all the things I wanted to do that year, every year or at some point in life. It was cool to see how many things I could cross off the list now. I had totally forgotten I’d written this! I thought I’d post it on here, cross things off as I could, and just have my goals in front of me. I even added a few more things to it today, and will continue to do so!
