My Bucket List

 I am a list writer, I love to plan, and I love adventure. So naturally I have a bucket list. And I started it back in college because I figure I would rather tackle my list now, then wait until life has passed me by. So here is my life. Or what I want to accomplish over my lifetime. So hopefully over time I can start blogging about the things I am marking off slowly but surely. Like running a 5k! That should be happening in the next month!
