Update – September 2014:

I’ve been thinking about taking down this list for at least a year. A huge piece of me is totally over living a life fueled by achievement. And I have no desire to complete several items on the list now.

But it’s also fun to keep this list up because a lot of the items are getting crossed off with zero effort.

So if you’re judging this list, join the club. I’m not that into it either. But since I’m a little uncomfortable keeping it up, it’s staying.

Adventure On.
