110 in 10

I remember seeing something like this on a blog a couple of years ago and can’t seem to find it anymore, but thought it was an absolutely amazing idea. Below is a list of some things I want to do in my life within the next 10 years. Sure the list and time seem rather ominous, but I think I can take care of a huge chunk of these items and it would be nice to look back after 10 years (assuming I’m still blogging) to see what I have accomplished. Granted a lot of these tasks are not “life event” types of thing. sometimes it’s the small things that matter. Also, I have never done a great deal of these things like fly a kite or go camping, so it’ll be very cool to do. Please bear in mind that I couldn’t find a way to randomize this list after I alphabetized it, so the order doesn’t necessarily mean one is more preferential than the other. However, it’ll be much easier for me to find and mark as done. =)

I’ll place this as a permanent link along the side, (and in my memories) so that I can keep track of them. I’ll edit the entries with the dates (and web links) of each event as they’re done…

  1. Hehe. Most avid geeks read a webzine (in a way sort of) called SlashDot (linked in the right sidebar). If anyone ever gets linked from there you pretty much become an instant celeb in the geek world. Plus it has the uncanny ability to completely bring down most websites than can’t handle the extra load of people coming in from /.

    It’s called the “ShashDot effect” or being “SlashDotted.” =)

  2. Go to a florist in a major city, buy a dozen roses and hand them to 12 random women

    I love it! Be sure to dress up when you do it though. 🙂

    Go to an S&M bar/club

    I’d love to visit one of those or a swingers club. I’m a huge voyeur, so I think it would be very interesting to check one of those places out.

    Learn how to dance salsa, or dance anything for that matter

    This one is *very* easy – find a place that offers classes. If this fat white girl can learn how to merengue, you can too. 🙂

    Visit a spa and get a massage by a professional

    Once you do this, you’ll be addicted. It feels *so* nice.

    What a great list!

  3. I love it! Be sure to dress up when you do it though. 🙂

    Hehe… =) Perhaps with my black suit and yellow socks! =)

    I’d love to visit one of those or a swingers club. I’m a huge voyeur, so I think it would be very interesting to check one of those places out.

    Me too, but I hear single guys are frowned upon in those places. Eh well, if you ever go to one, lemme know! =)

  4. I want to learn how to make flan, too. I’ve been eating them since I was 2 (as far as what my mom told me) and I never knew how to make them considering how easy it is to do so.
