50 in 555

So I’ve seen variations of this on multiple different blogs and was totally inspired. I always catch myself saying “I’d love to do/try that someday” and then that is usually the end of the conversation. But with this list I think I can push myself to cross some of those things off!

So I’ve created a list of 55 things I want to do/try in 555 days. (I’ve already crossed a couple things off since writing this but before publishing the post.) Using the handy dandy calculator (linked below) my completeion date is Wednesday, January 20, 2017!
