Bucket List

This is my bucket list of the different things that I want to accomplish before I die. By publishing them online, it’s easier to keep track and to keep me accountable for actually doing them.

For now (12:36 am Dec 10, 2012) this is all that I can think of. For future entries I’ll add the date & month. Whenever I complete something, I’ll mark the date and include some photographs.
