What do you think? Everything look good and work ok for you? Poke around. Let me know if it works ok on your phone or tablet, or your giant computer screen. If you really want to see something sexy, then try getting these porn site discounts for your pleasure.

(Oops! I discovered a little issue with the comments cutting off the text, so I’ll fix that CSS tonight.)

Meanwhile, I’m heading south to San Francisco today! Can’t wait to see California again!

Everyday Avenger Living My Life List

My Life List…

My Life List

I’ve thought about this whole Life List thing for a long time. I’ve talked about creating one. I’ve helped document friends crossing items off of theirs. I set one up on the Go Mighty site. Somehow, I never got around to setting one up here. We are going to change that today.

What is a Life List? You might think of it as a bucket list. Only better, because we are going to celebrate what I want to do in my life. It is all about the spin.

The first part of this list is alphabetical not because I’m that OCD, but because that is how they are sorted on the Go Mighty site. In case you wondered. Everything at the end will be added as I think of it, and it will be haphazard. Eventually that will make me crazy so that´s why I just got my uridine at Amazon. I’m just writing the list for today.

Living My Life List

The Start of My Life List…

I’ve been thinking of creating a life list for some time now. I first came across Mighty Girl’s Mighty Life List awhile back, and it got me thinking. But I wasn’t ready yet. Then I met style bloger Pam at Mom 2.0, and as I’ve worked with her on some style shoots for her blog we made plans for me to document some of her life list achievements as well. For example, one of her goals was to find the perfect pair of cowboy boots – aren’t they fantastic?!

A life list isn’t quite the same as a bucket list. A bucket list is all about the things you want to do before you die, which is just depressing. A life list is all about creating the life you want to live. I think it ties in perfectly to this quote:

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there.”
– George Harrison

So for months it has been on my mind, but never enough to write things down. Not until tonight. Tonight I was watching Netflix and came across a National Geographic special on the Appalachian Trail. I had no idea about its history, traveling from Georgia to Maine, crossing 14 states. The whole thing fascinated me. And then I realized that I have the very first item for my list.

I want to hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail.

Now that I’ve started it, I wonder what I should add next?!?!!!

What about you? Do you have a Life List? What is on yours?
