35 before 35.

as i said i would do in a previous blog post, i am posting my list of 35 things i want to do before i turn 35 (in no apparent order). it’s an interesting exercise. obviously there are way more things i want to do in the next eight years, but narrowing it down is half the fun. find me when i’m 35, and i’ll let you know how it went. so far i am getting closer to the bold ones. oh, and i got to cross off #32 thanks to my australian adventure.
