My Desired Experiences List

Technically, this is a bucket list… but since I’m not even 30 yet and don’t plan on dying anytime soon, it seems silly to give it that particular title.

This is also subject to change… frequently. I amassed most of these in one day, but in total, it took me maybe 3 sessions to get it as long as I have.

[Copy/pasted from Word- I would have put this on Facebook, but the notes wouldn’t let me copy & paste all this]

Rating System
•1*- “Wouldn’t it be nice?”
o I’d like to do this, but if I never do, that’s fine… but it’d be nice
•2**- “All Good Things Come to Those Who Wait”
o It’s a must, but there’s no rush
•3***- ASAP
o The opportunity must be taken advantage of as soon as it comes about because it may never happen again!
o If it never happens for/to me, I will regret it on my deathbed
