Learn sign language
Learn to play the piano
Do stand up comedy
Fire a gun
Have dinner with Meryl Streep and David Sedaris
Achieve and maintain my goal weight
Be a mentor to someone
Make a surprise visit to someone
Ride a gondola in Venice
Overcome my germ phobia
Become financially literate
Raise happy and healthy children
Road trip across America
Learn to be less 'sensitive'
Learn to stand up for my self
Swim with dolphins
Bury the hatchet/find closure with people

Learn to sail

  1. Barb - you could make a surprise visit to me and fire a gun on our farm. That would knock two off your list!

    Mine includes:
    Learn to play the guitar well enough to play in public
    Become a pilot
    Learn to speak German fluently
    Brew my own beer
