My To-do Lists

Life keeps you pretty busy on a day-to-day basis, and it’s important to keep some of your goals in mind. While I generally think it’s a better idea to live sans-lists, there are some things I want to keep track of. These are a work in progress.

In 2016:
–Take the Tour de Tom of Baltimore
–Take a biking trip
–Stay up past midnight at least once, partying
–Have a Black-Eyed Susan
–Don’t die while road tripping in Brazil
–Go to a nude beach

Before I Turn 30 35
–go waterskiing
–tour at least two countries in the Middle East (one-ish down!)
–go to the Tour de France (2 stages, at least one mountain)
–Have someone else drive me on the autobahn, as I’m too scared
–volunteer overseas
–go on a sisters trip, which means convincing my sisters to go somewhere
–go to a nude beach
–learn to speak a third language passably. Spanish or Arabic?
–see Pompeii
