99 Things

I saw this on somebody else's blog.

This is a list someone made of 99 experiences. The exercise is to put the ones you've done in bold, things you want to do in italics. Things you haven’t done and don’t want to: leave in plain font.

Many of the choices are weird! But it was fun to do anyway. I was surprised to see how many of these things I actually have done and how few of the ones that are left that I want.
