We don’t have that much time here and I think knowing how people choose to spend the time they do have is a great way to get to know them.  


I’ve been carrying this list of things I’d like to do around since I was 16 and periodically coming back to it to see what I’ve done and remind myself of what I’ve yet to do. 

So if you want to get to know me a little better, why don’t you take a look at what I plan on doing while I’m here?
