the list

many of my blogging friends have made a life list, their version of a bucket list. a few of them keep telling me that i need to make one. i have been hesitant to write a list because then it seems real, too concrete. if i publish it i might actually have to be accountable to it. there feels like too much pressure if the list is actually out in the open. yet, here i am, beginning to write down the list. it many grow, change or even be deleted if the pressure gets too great. let’s see how many things i get done before that happens.
