Here We Go…

So, while Stacie didn’t tag anyone for this meme, it sounded fun. Things in bold are things I’ve done, things in italics are things I’d like to do; thing in italics with an asterisk are things I really, really want to do … you get the picture.

41% … I think I need to get out more. However, some of these things are kind of dubious in nature like #16 and #46 and #77 and #97. I think it’s to my advantage to not be able to claim those as life experiences. I could also argue #80 on a technicality.

And to add the last bit of the meme … if you want to know more about any of the items on the list, I’ll take requests for future posts!

Consider yourself tagged if you’d like. I’d love to see what random items we have in common … and see how different the stories behind those items are!
