I have a ton of stuff I want to do with my life and the visual nerd in me likes crossing things off lists. These lists are constantly changing. I’m leaving the things that were on the list that I’ve accomplished but things I haven’t done yet seem to change over time, so some things I’ve added on previously I’ve found I’ve deleted because my goals have changed.
