Things to do

I was thumbing through pictures of vacations and it occurred to me - I need to make a list of things I want to do before I... not that I plan to anytime soon, but... die.

Most of the things I wish to accomplish involve travel. And sure, some of the things are private and involve pulleys and Wesson oil. But I digress.
  1. Learn to fly a plane.
  2. Tour Australia for 10 days.
  3. Drive around Europe for 10 days. (sub-item: drive on the autobahn)
  4. Live in a house on the beach.
  5. Take a picture near Mt. Rushmore in a pose which makes it look like my finger is in George Washington's nose.
  6. Try to be serious through an entire blog entry.
  7. Live in New York City.
  8. Discover who I am - really down deep - and be completely satisfied with that person.
  9. Find out that the "down deep" person I discover is a very rich man with no worries and no real schedule.
  10. Successfully end my addiction to beef jerky.

I hope after reading my (mostly serious) blog about life's potential, you will make your own list. Please click the COMMENT link below and share at least one.

Well, after reading your list, I really that I feel I've accomplished #8 and have realized that he'll never be #9 but that's OK. I'm not feeling in my normal whitty mood and know that my "situation" has had a lot to do with that so I'll just go with it, but what I would like to do before I (hoping I don't get there before you but I have a 5 year head start) die, is to know what is like to be in a truly happy and healthy LONG TERM relationship that does not leave one asking themselves WTF just happened???

I know what you mean. For me, 9 is probably out of reach too.

Well, I'm maybe halfway there... I didn't set an alarm this morning and slept until 10!

Oh wait, it's Saturday. Shit.

On the other subject, don't worry - it'll happen. But you gotta remember you're dealing with women. They see the world differently. Probably because they are aliens.

* Visit NYC.

* Visit Europe, hopefully for an extended period of time.

That's 2 anyway.
