answering my own question
12 things i haven’t done on the list that i’d most like to:
13. Watched a lightning storm at sea
15. Seen the Northern Lights
22. Taken a trip in a hot air balloon
39. Had a meaningful conversation with a beggar
44. Danced like a fool and not cared who was looking
68. Milked a cow
100. Ridden a gondola in Venice
121. Spoken more than one language fluently
126. Raised children
128. Followed your favorite band/singer on tour
130. Taken an exotic bicycle tour in a foreign country
194. Sold your own artwork to someone who didn’t know you
i know i’m really supposed to have the one about writing articles for a large publication on here. especially since that’s supposed to be a career goal of mine. but when i compared its FUN potential–and all there is to learn from doing some of these things–well, that just didn’t make the cut.
