The List

jonnyku_list_wallpaper

While perusing the interweb in 2009 I found a book called “101 Things to Do Before You Die” by Richard Horne. It’s a interesting book with colorful illustrations and stickers and checklists to track your completed items. I’ve always had a list of things in my mind that I wanted to do and realized life is full of excuses you make to not accomplish them. This is not a bucket list per say since we all know I am invincible and immortal (my only known weakness being bullets) but more of a way to get my list down then focus, execute and complete them.

Now granted since this  list of 101 things to do was created by someone else, some of the things I probably won’t ever do or have no desire to do but I will use this as my foundation and will add more to this list as I can so anything after #101 is my own additions. Some of them are more of a running list like “#67 Visit all the famous places in the world”. I may not complete my entire list but somewhere down the line I can look back and have a record of all that JonnyKu, the Man, the Myth, the Legend has accomplished. No Regrets, just Git ‘R Done.
