01:52 pm - so i never actually posted my original list here...
I joined this group at the beginning, made a list - and then never posted it here. It's changed a little since I originally wrote it, because there were things on it that I didn't want to do anymore and new things I wanted to do before my deadline. The list has encompassed a great period of change in my life - graduating from high school and starting university - and it's helped me a lot to grow as a person. I've crossed off a fair number of things on this list. I'm looking forward to the next one, as that will encompass me graduating from university and starting out into The Real World (whaaat.)
