Very interesting idea for a blog, I like it. That's a lot to complete though!

Thanks !

It actually isnt that much to complete since I have 2.75 years to do it all. And I have no pressure to actually do it all since I'm going to donate money to charity for everyone not done so there is no feeling bad if i didnt achieve it all.

Making the list in the first place helps you to realise all the things that you really want in your life and def helps organise my VERY scatty brain.
