100 Things To Do Before You Die

Random post, but there may be more of these in the future. It’s not so much a bucket list as a guideline or checklist. These are all things I personally want to do, by the way,  but a lot of them pertain to a lot of other people as well. I figured I should share it all with you so that maybe you can figure out your own list of things you want to do before you die. (I’ve already done some of these, but I decided to include them anyway as inspiration for your lists.)

    Great list! I love s’mores. Did you know National S’mores Day is celebrated annually on August 10? Carpe diem! Do it now before age & circumstances limit you.

    I love your list! It’s nice that some are simple and easy to achieve, while others are a bit more drastic. I’m not much of a traveler, but I’m hoping to change that in the coming years. I like your ideas for trips 🙂
