Hey, this sounds like a 'bucket list' but I sincerely hope you're not kicking the bucket soon! I have a list of things I want to do too, mostly in the area of self-improvement or entertainment. But it's not so exhaustive. Thanks for sharing this.

Hah! Yes, this is kind of like a bucket list, but more short term. I've really had fun doing these things and highly recommend making your own list if you like lists! :)

I hope you go on that date soon, haha ;)
