35 by 35

     I've been sitting on a list of things I'd like to accomplish, and since I am whipping out things left and right this week, I thought, lets wrap this list up and get it posted!  I'm 34, and I have PLENTY of years left in me, but man...why wait to do anything?  I could probably lump some of these together, so I may come back and do some editing of this list, but nothing will come off-just get noted and combined and something else will get added on. This has been an amazing few years so far, why not add a little direction to make it THAT much better-here's to you, all! 
May your next year be fun, productive and adventurous!
