Author Comments: 

It started as a list of 50 things, when I was 17. It's been growing though, since I'm 22 now and it's up to 200!

EDIT: March 1st, 2013: There are a few things I took off the list, so it's now down to 193 until I find new things I want to experience!

EDIT: February 20th, 2015: Back up to 200!
