I made this list about a month ago, prompted by a facebook trend (-: The truth is, I have always loved making lists, especially about my inner workings. My sis, Mom and I used to create interesting lists just for fun, and if I was brave enough to sift through the many sketchbooks and journals I have filled, I would be able to find them. It would be so great to read those older lists, To see how I have changed.. Anyways, here is the list.
