The List

Here you kind find all of my crazy, weird, and completely cliche dreams for the future. It will forever continue to evolve, with items being crossed out as they are completed and others being added as I think of even more adventures. Some will never be crossed off, as they are goals that I’ll continue to work toward for the rest of my life. That’s what life is. A rotating list of goals, ambitions, and wishes.

Go out and live your dreams.
