Yep, i have made my own list. Enjoy, maybe.

1. Started your own blog
. The best decision I ever made.
2. Slept under the stars
3. Played in a band
4. Visited Hawaii- unless you count the Hawaii in my dreams.
5. Watched a meteor shower
6. Given more than you can afford to charity<--this is ridiculous. I mean, that it's on this list. Why yes, I have done that! That's why i'm so poor!
7. Been to Disneyland
8. Climbed a mountain. What, like a whole mountain? from base to peak? Yes, mount jen, the hill next door to my house.

10. Sang a solo
11. Bungee jumped-- i wish.
12. Visited Paris
13. Watched a lightning storm at sea If by "sea" you also mean "lake."
14. Taught yourself an art from scratch. <-- what does that even mean? instead of taught myself an art from a box? And, what is "art"? 15. Adopted a child. No, but I did adopt a shelf at the elementary school library, and my books were always in order! As would be my children... 16. Had food poisoning. i don't think i ever have. interesting... 17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty. I did ride on a boat that took me super close and i could see up her nose.
18. Grown your own vegetables Define grow. Something definitely grew. Was it edible? that's the question.

20. Slept overnight on a train
21. Had a pillow fight <-- stupid. yeah you haven't really "lived" until you've done this. I wish i could have a pillow fight with #21. Also, i just remembered I swatted Sean in the night with my pillow last night, just to keep him on his toes. It was awesome. More of a "pillow ambush" though.
22. Hitch hiked.
I wasn't hitch hiking but i did accept a ride in an ambulance to where I needed to go. I realize now how foolish this was but i was like, free ride in an ambulance and i'm not injured! yes please. Interestingly, the two times i've ridden in an ambulance, it was for transportation only.

Would Sean object that you consider starting a blog the best decision you've ever made? As opposed to say, marrying him?

Ashley said...

And when have you been to the Grand Canyon? I know I haven't, so how did we get separated?

Jen said...

Ash, didn't we? when we were small? I don't know. I just feel like we must have done that at some point in our youth.

joel, I am pretty sure Sean would agree with me. He thinks my blog is pure genius--GENIUS.

I'm pretty sure a tram (if you mean like the ski lift thing) is also called a gondola, so you have done that. I know... a gondola is also the boat you ride in Venice.
