Things I want to do!

I 've known about 43 things, a website where members share their goals, for quite some time. I remember seeing it whenever I google-search places I want to travel to, or activities that I want to do.

Given my love of list making, I really wanted to join. I'm the person who has sticky notes of things I like and things that make me happy lest I forget. However, I didn't think I could ever come up with a list of 43 things (43..!!). Waaay to many. But as I read other lists, I realized I could list whatever I want. I saw everything from "read 5 books" to "get a job." I love how fluid and flexible those list were, and it really motivated me to jot down some random thoughts.

I recommend everyone to do the same (at least on a sticky note!!). Because its so easy for dreams and little things to get lost in the shuffle of the real life. Seriously, my life gets so hectic that sometimes I forget I like puffins or that being barefoot makes me happy. I definitely benefit from little reminders.

So, here goes my ever changing list of grandiose life things to small everyday tasks.

I hope to get more crossed off items! Check back to see how I'm doing (weeell, somethings will probably take a few years).
