My List Keeps Growing.

Since I am still not in New Zealand, I obviously don't have much to post on here. I am, however, constantly thinking about my time abroad and planning what I want to accomplish overseas. I had an assignment in a class last semester to create a "Bucket List:" a list of tasks you want to accomplish before you die. There is a good chance I may be able to cross some things off my list within the next 6 months, and a greater chance that I will add to it. But for now, here are 30 things I want to accomplish before I die:

1. Become a talented, experienced knitter.

2. Own my own dog

3. Go backpacking through Europe

4.  Own a manual shift red Jeep Wrangler

5. Stay in the ice hotel  

6. Learn to sail 

7. Bungee jump

8. Hike the entire Appalachian Trail

9. Get a tattoo and never regret it
