Bucket List

Here is a list of things I want to do before I die. It’s different from a to-do list because these are super long term goals that will require a bit more planning and finances then that involved with baking a cake and eating it to.


  1. Witness something that takes my breath away
  2. Drive @ 200 mph (in a sports car) – Almost, drove 120 mph thinking I was in km/hr.
  3. Climb a mountain and watch the sun rise @ summit
  4. Get up on a surf board  – May 2013 in Santa Monica California. Took 30 minutes but made it up on the board thanks to my stubbornness and the help of my lovely coach.
