In the comments, tell me one thing that you haven't done on this list that you would love to do. Everyone knows I would love to do #17 (walking to the top of the Statue of Liberty) + #73 (standing in Times Square), but besides also wanting to do #12 (visiting Paris) and #82 (buying a brand new car), I think it would be so cool/amazing to do #80. I'll let you scroll up to see what that one is :)

Also, is there something you want to do that is not on this list? What is your #100? Maybe running through a field of flowers or getting married? I want to do both.

P.S. I really hope #99 doesn't ever happen to me!
P.S.S. To learn more about me, in numbered format, read my 25 things post.

I've never been stung by a bee either, but oddly enough I'd like to. Just so I can say I have. It's on my list of things to do before I die. This was really fun to read, thanks for sharing!
