Things I Want to Do in Life

I was talking to a friend the other day and he was telling me all of these really wonderful, specific goals he had for his life- be a mathematician, drink vodka in Moscow, learn to build a house for himself, etc. All I could think of for my own life was just to be happy. But it got me thinking... how can I progress if I don’t even know what I want? So I made a semi-nerdy yet altogether awesome list of all the things I want for my life. It made me realize how diverse my interests are and how many different ways I could go. Really, you should try it.... it makes ya feel good. Don't censor yourself. Even if it seems dumb just write it. Lay it all out... then get to work!
