Happy birthday to me

12:00:00 AM

Today's my 26th birthday! Happy birthday to me! Yay! :)
Just for today, I'll have my cake and eat it, too.

Anyhow, my friend Hannah is the inspiration for this post. She put together a list of the things she'd like to do before her 25th birthday, and she really made most of them happen. It makes perfect sense to set a deadline on the things you'd like to do, because then you'd actually be pressured to get them done. 
I should have a list just for TRAVEL.

Below is my version of that list - a Pre-27 Bucket List. I've actually started working on this list since November 1, 2012. Given the length of this list, I think I deserve the additional lead time of two months. :)  
Before I Turn 27

My list this year is a good mix of easy and difficult things to do, although most of these are quite easy since it's my first time to do this project. I also need to be realistic about what I can do within a span of a year. And I want my 27 By 27 List to help me build my momentum for my lists in the coming years. There's a lot of things I'd like to accomplish, but some just require more time and preparation. That being said, I'm going to make a separate list with a longer work period.

Wish me luck! And if you ever want to take on a list of your own, good luck to you, too! :)
