The Bucket List

I have a lot of goals in life. And I mean, a LOT. Most of these are going to require that I either win the big lottery or that Matt allows me to get a rich boy toy for the side because lots of my goals require much more money than we are currently seeing.

So let's break it down. Every decade of my life I'm going to have the list that I want to do. I'll also have some "alternatives" should I not be able to afford everything. See? I'm always thinking. Without further ado.. (and keep note- that if they are in black, that means it's done and you can click on it to see the post about it.)
