    Congratz EvertonBroncos! I believe you are quite young, so you will complete your list and add many, many more to it. Just a suggestion....why not look into a 101 type language course now, and get that one well underway by next year? I'm thinking of doing the same thing.
    Wasn't so bad, though I think that a complex tattoo would hurt some. We compared it to getting a sharp pinch intermittently, as thankfully the process is done with many short breaks.

    No "buyer's remorse", but if they were more visible for everyone to see, and larger in size, I might be wondering what I did!!!

    It's like they taught us in Winter Driving Skills......look towards where you want to go, and you will more likely end up there. Stare at the ditch or a tree, and...……………. good luck!

    I hear ya....writing is enjoyable, but definitely "put off" worthy. My brother has written a little trilogy, and he's pretty good at it. He minimized cost by doing some things on his own, but in the end, he probably barely made ends meet. Now, if for some reason a book of his got noticed, the end result could be very lucrative. But I suspect few folks make a lot of money.....and many seek to break even. Then again there's that feeling of achievement that comes with completion of task.

    As for bucket lists and such, they can be like "resolutions" that sound great, but lose intensity at sometimes a rapid rate! But I think you'll agree, it is better to plan than to sit pat. Ah yes, but planning needs execution, and some of us fail at that point. I do believe however that thinking about things is a positive act. It can provide hope, meaning, motivation.....and perhaps the impetus for change.

    Ha ha....then again, I can be a bit of a dreamer!!

    Funny how those lists change over the years .... I tend to replace one's I've done with new ones ... or I'll admit, as I got further along with my life, I lost interest in some of those items that were on my list when I was younger... don't know if others run into that.

    Not necessarily in any order, but all something I'd love to do at least once.

    1.) Get published in an anthology

    2.) Travel to Ireland

    3.) Travel to Alaska

    4.) Climb the manitou incline

    5.) Travel to London
    Hey my friend....keep a pen or pencil nearby, because I believe you will scratch each one off your list someday!!:thumb:

    Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Maybe even knock off a couple together, like a nice longer trip to Great Britain.

    1.start a family with the girl I love

    2.if I end up having a son, I would definitely want to be a coach for baseball or football or whatever sport he loved. My dad did it and I still wish I could go back to those times

    3.go to New Zealand , it's beautiful there and I've always wanted to go

    4.Skydiving, something about it entices me to do it

    5.Be able to bench press more then 300 pounds. I don't know why but that's the number I've always wanted since I was 15

    That's all I can think of right now, I'm sure there is tons more though
    Go for it bud! Maybe you are bigger than me, but I was happy to bench over 200 pounds. Everything above that was gravy. And when I say everything, I did not mean another 100 pounds!!!
