Checking in on The List: Two Months Left

If you have been reading for a while, you might recall that I made a list of 30 things I want to do while I am 30 years old. I have made better progress than I thought but still have some major activities to check off. Here is how I am doing:

  2. Make out at the drive in
  3. Visit a battlefield
  4. Hike to a waterfall [done]
  5. Find my signature drink [Mojito or Salty Dog (made with vodka)]
  6. Go swimming after midnight [done]
  7. Memorize 3 chapters of Scripture [I've done a lot of individual verses this year but no consecutive verses]
  8. Sit on our roof [done: New Year's Eve for fireworks and our 5 year anniversary]
  9. Ride a Ferris wheel [I have not even been near one but I may end up in Myrtle Beach in a few weeks. Hopefully I'll be able to ride the new ferris wheel there.]
  10. Catch fireflies [done: caught and released]
  11. Write a letter to each of my brothers [Woah. I wrote Abram. One down. 5 to go]
  12. Read. Read. Read. To August. [done, done and done]

  17. Write in August's daily journal consistently [done!]
