List#97: My Bucket List

There has been a Bucket List survey going around Facebook.com. Since it’s really impersonal, I thought I’d make my own list of things I’d like to do before I die. This list is not complete. Not sure if it ever will be! There are in no particular order:

Witness someone get healed from blindness

See the Northern Lights

Give birth

Fund an adoption

Own a second home near the beach (city/country yet to be determined)

Have $1 million

Travel to Italy, Greece and Germany

Go to all 50 states

Be completely debt-free

Visit my friends in Brazil

Meet my childen, grandchildren and great-grand children!

Just for the heck of it, here’s the one from Facebook:
