Things To Do Before I Die

This post is inspired by I have never watched the TV show, but I read a little snippet from the book, and it got me thinking about all the things that I want to do with my life. I'm in my mid-20s. I have a whole lot of life to live, and I want to fill it with meaningful, exciting, fulfilling things. So here's my running list of things I want to do before I die. I'll simply add things as I think of them. It doesn't matter how improbable—if I want to do it, it's going on the list. And maybe, just maybe, someday I'll get to start checking them off.
