Summer 2012 Bucket List


Keeping up with the whole self improvement theme of 2012, I’ve gotten really into making lists. To Do lists to keep organized, goal lists so I have something to strive for, shopping lists just because that’s easier, and Bucket Lists. But doing one for my entire life seems rather daunting, and if the world were to end this year, I’d never accomplish it. So I’m in the process of writing a “Summer 2012 Bucket List”. I’m sure that it will continue to change, things always seem to find a way to do that. But here’s the work in progress. :]
