1. Started your own blog.
2. Slept under the stars.
3. Played in a band.
4. Visited Hawaii.

6. Given more than you can afford to charity. Spotted a homeless guy $20 when I was short $50 for my rent...not much I know, but there it is.
7. Been to Disneyland.
8. Climbed a mountain. How could I grow up in the Rockies and not?

10. Sang a solo.
11. Bungee jumped.
12. Visited Paris.
