100 things to do before I kick the bucket: the first 40

I’m sure by now I’ve mentioned a few times that I love lists. I especially love lists that have (albeit lofty) goals attached to them.

I’ve always loved the idea of having a “bucket list”, or a list of  things to do before you croak. I decided it was high time to really think this over and get my own list going.

This list comes to you in no particular order according to importance nor relevance.
