I have a list of 100 things before I die and places to see, but have realized that as of right now, it’s just a list. I have not really taken advantage of it. Life is way too short to keep making up excuses not to live life to its fullest. First off, you only have today; you never know what’s in store tomorrow.
I wish there were more hours in a day, more people to join me on my journeys, and of course making more money doesn’t hurt either. My job right now is so intense at times and life in general in hectic VA with traffic that doesn’t move, crazy unpredictable weather that shuts down stores that I tend to forget to take advantage of all the fun in life.
I am making it my goal to at least see this small chunk of the list by next year. I realized my like includes a lot of animals and I’m not really sure why.
One of the things on my list was to tour the White House. I always thought it would be available…Thanks to sequestration, they no longer offer it. I may be dead before they offer it again.
