  • A few days ago, I was digging around for some stupid loan paperwork shit in the boxes under my bed, and I came across a list I made on graph paper in honors English class junior year -- probably while I should have been listening to Mrs. Anderson talking about Catcher in the Rye or something -- of about thirty things I wanted to do before I died. This list has been growing in my head ever since junior year, and I spent most of my lunch break and this afternoon adding stuff to it.

    I think everybody should have one of these lists.

    Things I Must Do Before I Die )

    And of course I'll keep adding to this.
