This day, twenty-one years ago…

Posted on

…happened to be my first appearance on the stage, so to speak. (It’s my birthday.) 

So, here is a list of things I would like to do before I turn 30.

  • Go cliff jumping. (No, not the financial cliff tonight.)
  • Go bungee jumping.
  • Go base jumping.
  • Go sky diving.
  • Visit all seven continents. (Asia, N. America, S. America, Europe, Africa, Australia, Antarctica)
  • Publish a book.
  • Reach 100,000 hits on a blog or website.
  • Get a photo published in a major publication.
  • Get a degree or two (in something).
  • Get a motorcycle.
  • Learn how to draw decently.
  • Learn another language fluently.
  • Visit all 50 United States (25/50).
  • Get married? (Emphasis on the question mark.) 
  • Actually finish an entire video game campaign.
  • Sail in a sailboat.
  • Play Dungeons & Dragons.
  • Go to a Con (Comic-con, Dragon-con, something-con…)
  • Throw a boomerang and have it return to me.
  • Stay in New Zealand for a decent amount of time.
  • Use a large format film camera (preferably in New Zealand).
  • Learn how to surf.
  • Acquire a TARDIS.
  • Add to this list.

I’ll be updating this list as I go. Have a great year! Happy New Year!!

~ Chris

    Sweet list! How about meeting (or better yet befriending) a real ghost or a real witch? I think that’d be awesome.

      That would be most curious…

    Happy birthday, Chris. Sounds like you’re gonna be busy for a minute.

    Happy Birthday Kiddo … oh to be young again. To some people I’m young. To you I will be old 🙂 Get your butt to New Zealand and strike off a whole bunch of items on your list, including the boomerang (lots of time to do that there :).

Tell me what you think!
