  1. I want to do some sort of list but with my 29th birthday being last month it would have to be something smaller than 30.

    Looks like you have some great stuff on yours!

  2. I have a list of ten places where I want to live for six months. Most are in the US, some in Europe and one in Australia. I also want to develop the ability to hang out in coffee shops and just sit there watching people or reading.

  3. great list! At the end I finally understood that this all doesn't have to be done in one year, because if that was the case you would be a VERY busy girl.

    can't wait to hear about the progress! :)
