Bucket List

I have been hesitating to create this list for a very very long time. I used to have a separate notebook to write ideas and dreams, yet nobody had ever seen it. In other words, there is no proof it ever existed.

How bad it is to keep telling people to dream and achieve what they desire but could not keep track my own record. Reaching goals is always very very inspirational. But without a good way to remind myself about what I have made, most the passions go away very soon too.

So, here is my dreams, I will list them here, and update frequently. If you ever read this post, don’t forget to count the length of this list and the amount of crossed ones (finished ones) It can be inspirational to do so, I think.
