My Life List

Here is the complete list of my life goals.  I first created a life list when I was about 13, and I have been adding and crossing off items ever since.  My list is a guide to having a rich and fulfilling life, and I never want to get so caught up in crossing things off that I forget to enjoy the experiences.
