The List 54/74

I've never really had a formal bucket list. I've always seen my whole life as a bucket list. This has mostly worked out great and other times gotten a little dicey. I saw this :30 second video from entrepreneur/motivational speaker Gary Vee and it made me think that maybe I should be a little more formal about my list. I wrote down some of the things I've done already (I came up with 54) and put in bold the things I still have left that I would like to do. (20)  

I know I'll think of more to add as time moves on. For now, it looks like I'll need to start saving up my frequent flier miles.
