Life Adventure List

So I have had a few requests to publish my list of 68 things that I want to do before I die. I am hesitant to do so because it is a silly list of things that have meaning and are important to me, so the list will not mean the same to you. But I guess at the same time it brings you a little closer to how my crazy mind works. I wrote this list 2 and a half years ago at The Tea Garden on Grand Ave in St. Paul.
