28 things before i turn 29

all geared up at brooklyn boulders

I make lists for everything. There are grocery lists, to do lists, gift lists, mix tape lists, etc. Here is a list of 28 things I want to do before I turn 29. Initially, I made this to get back to the activities I loved to do as a child, such as playing kickball or putting together a puzzle. I also decided that I wanted to challenge myself as well. I would like to overcome my fear of heights, hence rock-climbing and sky diving. I am sad to say that I still have a fear of heights after the rock-climbing experience. I went with my friend (KS) and she was super supportive. At the very end I did make it to the top, but mentally it was not easy! And physically I felt all the blood rushing out of my body and I was sweating. KS said I looked pale white. I am terrified of sky diving. I might actually pass out. We'll see. I am very serious about completing each task. As you can see some are already crossed out. Let me know if you want to help or join in. Or make your own list. I will keep you updated on my progress throughout the year.
