Me, 9 months later...

In January of this year I posted this list with things that I have done thus far in life in red. Now, 9 months later and 3/4 of the way through the year I revisited this list to see if I could check off anything else. The red are things I had done prior to this year, the blue are things I have done this year, the black are yet to be done. There are a few that I don't even care to do, so they will forever remain unchecked; hitch hiking, adopting, bungee jumping. I hope to never be fired from a job, ride in an ambulance or break a bone. For most of the others it looks like I still need to get that darn passport!!!! ;0)

Ok, so I triple dog dare you to get your passport. I dare you to prove me wrong and get your passport by the end of the year. Not because you are going somewhere but JUST BECAUSE!!!!!

There's your challenge for the last part of 2009.
