(Check out my new list of 37 Things I Want to Do Before I Turn 38!)
Okay, this sounds like one of those lists of Facebook that your friends tag you in. Maybe I should start a list on Facebook too, but I want to keep track of my list here.
I like to make lists. I like to think about all of the things I want to do in my life. I like deadlines. Now, I am 35 at the time of this writing, but I turn 36 in two months, so I am giving myself 14 months to complete everything on the list.
I got this idea from Michelle My Belle, who got the idea from Hula Seventy.
So there you go. And here I go::
36 Things I Want to Do Before I Turn 37.
