By following links from various different blogs (quickly becoming a favorite past time), I found a blog of a gal who keeps a list of things she wants to do before she dies. In the past, I’ve always thought that these kinds of things were a little cheesy, but something really appeals to me about it now. I don’t know – maybe it’s the fact that I’m turning 30 this year. Maybe it’s the vision and purpose that it adds. Who knows? For whatever reason, I thought to myself, “I’d like to start a list, too!” So here’s my first draft of My List – I’m sure I’ll be adding to and revising the list as time goes on.
- Go to New York City with Shelly
- See Les Miserables on Broadway
- Visit Washington, D.C.
- Go on a tour of biblical sites in Israel
- Go on a mission trip to Africa
- Start my own business
- Write a book and get it published
- Visit all 50 states with Shelly (more than just driving through)
Alabama * Alaska * Arizona * Arkansas *
California* Colorado* Connecticut * Delaware * Florida * Georgia * Hawaii * Idaho * Illinois * Indiana * Iowa * Kansas * Kentucky * Louisiana * Maine * Maryland * Massachusetts * Michigan * Minnesota * Mississippi* Missouri * Montana* Nebraska* Nevada * New Hampshire * New Jersey * New Mexico* New York * North Carolina * North Dakota * Ohio * Oklahoma* Oregon * Pennsylvania * Rhode Island * South Carolina * South Dakota * Tennessee * Texas* Utah* Vermont * Virginia * Washington * West Virginia * Wisconsin * Wyoming
- Watch all 32 NFL football teams play a regular season or playoff game
Bears * Bengals * Bills *
Broncos* Browns * Buccaneers * Cardinals * Chargers * Chiefs* Colts * Cowboys * Dolphins * Eagles * Falcons * 49ers * Giants * Jaguars * Jets * Lions * Packers * Panthers * Patriots * Raiders * Rams * Ravens * Redskins * Saints * Seahawks * Steelers * Texans * Titans * Vikings
#2 will be difficult since Les Mis is currently not playing on Broadway, so I’m counting on a Broadway revival – or, I’ll count it if I see it in London.
#9 started out as “Watch and NFL football game in every professional stadium.” That would be really, really cool but probably fairly unfeasible, so I changed it to just seeing every team play.
