Can I kick it? Yes you can!

While a "bucket list" may seem daunting, which is why I wrote a joy list instead, I do still have things I want to do, at some point in my life. I want to share them with you.

This is by no means a comprehensive list, and is in no particular order, but:

Things I Want To Do At Some Point In My Life

Visit all 7 continents (3 down! 4 to go!)

Visit all 50 states (side mission: figure exactly which ones I've already visited)

Learn to speak French

Learn to play the guitar

Dye my hair blue

Work in a university library as a professional librarian (not just as a student like I did in undergrad)

Take at least a week's vacation in a tropical location without any agenda at all

Own a house

Get married

Have children

Compete in a triathlon

Live debt free

Host regular dinner parties


Become a certified actor-combatant

Learn to really sew, not just hack it like I do now

Play the Baker's Wife in Into the Woods

Play Cathy in The Last 5 Years

Live in a walking neighborhood

Get a second Masters' degree

As my email signature says, "Imagine you're 80, looking back on the fulfilling, beautiful life you've led. Now go do that."

I know I'm more than half way through the states. The rest are on my list as well. As is Canada because then I'll have been to all of the countries in North America.
