Bucket Lists

I thought about my bucket lists before I turned twenty. Actually, I thought about them while I was running outside in my neighborhood last summer 2010. I was going through my quarter-life crisis, and I decided that I actually needed to focus and write down my life aspirations and see what I have already accomplished, and what can be accomplished by the end of the year, the end of college, before I go to the Peace Corps, and before I turn 30.
