I saw this list through Ali's blog (hello old lj friend!), and figured since I didn't get to do Ten on Tuesday, I'd stick this up as a post.

  • Copy the list.
  • Bold the ones you've done (w/explanations if needed).
  • Share with friends.

I have:

(not a fan of camping, but this made it worth it)
3. Played in a band

(I was in college, of course it was more than I could afford)

11. Bungee jumped
12. Visited Paris

(I think so, at a farm in Belgium)
26. Gone skinny dipping

34. Visited the birthplace of your ancestors (the Filipino part, anyway.)
35. Seen an Amish community
36. Taught yourself a new language

60. Served at a soup kitchen
61. Sold Girl Scout Cookies

63. Got flowers for no reason

Nice picture! I think you've done way more of those things than me.

I love the picture, too...although it does unfortunately remind me of being terrified when I was actually in one of the gondolas in Venice. And I feel as though my life has allowed me to cheat on this list, since I got to cross off a good chunk just from living in Italy & France.

About Me

My photo
I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
