My ‘Bucket List’

I saw this list of 100 things one must do before he dies, posted by my room mate in his blog. I remember creating a list like this when I was in school and saved in an email. So I went searching around and to my surprise I managed to actually find it. The list was much smaller than I thought, it had just 23 items. So here’s my ‘bucket list’, inspired by that incomplete list and also his post.

The list of 50 things I need to do before I die, in no particular order…
