101 things to do!

 A good friend reminded me of this little list I posted a while back...time to refresh! :D


My 'things to do' post is an actual mix of things for the present  and lifetime wishes. As I was searching for inspiration, i stumbled across many 'to do' lists and couldn't help but notice that I have already fulfilled a lot of things that other people only wish for. I feel blessed! I did not include those in this list. some may seem childish or irrelevant, but i reflected on each point enough to know one important thing: checking it would make me happy! here goes:
