My list of 160 Things to Do Before I Die from 2014

I was cleaning up my hard drive and I found my old bucket list.  It was a little nostalgic to find it.  I made this list the year right after the last car accident when the girl ran a stop sign and ran straight into my door and the fire fighters had to cut me out and very lucky to only deal with bruises, body pains, and a concussion.  The police and doctor told me it’s a miracle I’m alive.  I made this list with a new look at life and forgot about it as life got back to normal.  As I went back through to see what I actually did, I am pretty proud that I’ve checked off 30 items from my list of 160.

PS. I am really questioning why some of the items are on this list like getting in a shark cage, kissing underwater, and apparently a lot of twirling?
