My 100 Goals

In 2009 (at the age of 22) I compiled the following list of 100 goals to accomplish by my 30th birthday.

The rules: These are all things that (a) I had never done before, or (b) I wanted to do again before I'm 30. The goal accomplishing started on 2/10/09, so even if I’d done something already it can't be crossed off my list until I do it again.
