To quote the great Ferris Bueller (what can I say? I'm an 80s kid), "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
Life does move pretty fast these days, and it seems to be moving faster with each passing year! In an attempt to slow down and make time to have a little fun, I've started keeping what I call my Birthday Bucket List. Basically, it is a list of new things I want to do before my next birthday.
When I first started doing this, the number of things that I wanted to do in the coming year was the same as the age I would be turning on my next birthday, but as the years started adding up I found that I just couldn't keep up. So, instead I've narrowed the list down to 12 things, with the goal of attempting to mark one off my list each month. (But don't hold me to that!)
So, here is my 2011-2012 Birthday Bucket List:
As I complete the items, I will mark them off the list and write a blog post about the experience. I'm really looking forward to the coming year, and getting to learn, see, and do some exciting new things!
