The Life list (2017)

So, here it is! A list of 277 things I was hoping to complete by January 2018! That deadline isn’t going to happen, I am still trying to complete all of these though!

Some things I have done before just to clarify, and I will write in more detail about all of these soon. Some are new experiences, some I just wanted to experience again. All are fun.

You may notice some of these are pretty personal, some are, frankly, odd, and most of them rely on ‘Watch        ‘. You can really tell I was struggling to come up with some ideas, and some may wonder why I didn’t stop, at oh, 100. I don’t have an answer for you.

This isn’t some big bucket list, these are just things I want to do, and putting them in list form helps me focus on them. Some I may never finish, I might start a new and better and more realistic list, but I’m still trying my hardest to finish these! This is all about enjoying the small things in life because sometimes they matter the most.

Wish me luck!
