Yours reminded me a few things I did that I didn't put on my list

Sometimes it's hard to remember all the cool experiences we have!

your list makes mine look boring!!!!

Serena...Think of things that took your breath away, made you feel regret, made you grieve, made you love....Start there honey..You can do it!!!:)

psh, I joined this group thinking it'd be fun to put down 50 cool things I've done, and I honestly can't think of any. Especially after reading yours. Way more interesting.

Serena...I guess because I have lived with ME all 38 years, I don't see myself as Now others, like you.....heck yeah!!!! :)

Wow, those are fascinating things. And you think you're not interesting! That's ten times more interesting than the things I've done!

Sam...I bet it helped that you were a nudist! hahaha!<br />
<br />
Flour..And yet I have only begun:)

youve done alot!

Wow! Well, you sure impressed the hell out of me. That was an awesome list!<br />
<br />
(#20 -- Played that many times in college and lost totally on more than one occasion. Fortunately I was something of a nudist at the time so although the fact of loosing ticked me off I didn't really mind paying the penalty. Hee!)

I am with UnseenBlossom. I would pay you not to have to do some of that stuff! It is VERY impressive!

Some of the things you've done are very impressive. Well done!

thanks sweetie! <br />
hugs,<br />

OMGosh....there are so many things I would love to experience. I really enjoy what you share.

I reread it and thought.."Are you kidding?!? How boring!"<br />
I guess it's subjective!<br />

That's an awesome, and interesting list. Well Done!
