My Bucket List

Here is my bucket list – I put it on here publicly mostly for accountability (so people will pressure / ask me about it every time they see me – thus, fighting my procrastination).

Some items are done, some are a work in progress.

Note: The list is very much dynamic. I’ll add, change and remove items from it as time goes by.

If anyone wants to do any of these activities together, message me.
