100 resolutions

I stole this from a friend. It's about the 100 things I would love to do in my life before I die. As I was drifting off to sleep last night I was thinking about the two types of lives people tend to lead. A life of fulfillment or a life of success. Is it possible to lead both or do the sacrifices you make it impossible (i.e. Family or Career). I know what I would choose if I had to. So here's a list of 100 things I want to do in the time I have. Some are personal, others are simply dreams. Many will probably never happen. But that's what dreams are. Things we long for or to do that might not become reality.
