The last couple years, and particularly the last couple months, I have felt like I have accomplished NOTHING. Now, this is, of course, not true. I've still traveled, got a job (had six at one point), did all kinds of things really. But, with being a lame ass invalid I just feel like there is so much more I've wanted to accomplish and haven't been able to.

This is probably a good thing. Because now, I will likely be inspired and determined to waste no time as soon as I am fully functioning again (maybe in a couple months? ::fingers crossed::).

Anyways, what I do have now is time to think about and plan out all of the adventures I want to be a part of in the next few years. Here's a fun brainstorm of the goals I'm setting for myself. (Please feel encouraged to comment with your own.)

Marathon--this is a big one. I was well on my way to accomplishing this goal before I fell victim to the tick bite. This WILL happen before I am 30.
Triathlons--good fun.
Short film--I've been sitting on what I consider to be a really awesome screen play for some time now. I wrote it in an afternoon while in Colorado (when I should have been doing work...). It requires a pretty small cast and probably only a week of filming at most. I would love to do this over the summer.
Lounge singer--No, I'm not kidding. I want to put together a couple hours worth of material and sell myself to some clubs/lounges. I really want to sing again somewhere. Just for fun. You only live once.
The Amazing Race--Now, this one requires the commitment of the brilliant and lovely Amanda Matlock, so we'll see, but no one can tell me that I wouldn't be awesome at this. I was born to do race amazingly. Oh, let me see, mental and physical competition with a close friend while traveling around the world. If it sounds like the description of my autobiography, IT IS. Amanda, get done with law school and f jobs for a while. We're doing it. ;D
World Cup, Brazil--Admittedly Manolis is the driving force behind this desire, but, come on, it would be awesome. It's a while away; we can make this happen.
Sky diving--This is a classic. But I do want to do it.
Bikram's Yoga Retreat--I have to get back into the practice again, but once I feel comfortable and confident enough I would love to take part in an intensive Bikram Yoga instructive retreat. I'll be walking on my hands in no time.
See all 7 continents. Believe it or not, even with all of my travels, I have only been to two continents: North America and Europe. The next 10 years will give way to a hard push for the other 5 (Yes, this includes Antarctica. Yes, you can go there.)

These are just the first few things that come to my mind. There are more. But a pretty good start, I think. Each day better than the one before.

:) Awesome! Looks like The Amazing Race application timeline is typically in February for late spring/summer filming. I can't do this year because of the bar exam, but I would LOVE to apply the next year!!! And marathon as soon as you're ready and able! :)

A lot of the stuff on your list sounds like items that would be on mine. I hope that you check off a lot, if not all, of them. said... the newest news for football.
