My 40 before 40 List

So this is my list. At the time of starting to create this list (8/4/17), I’ve got exactly 337 days to complete them all. I should have started earlier, but never mind!

I’ve researched other people’s lists online for inspiration and added some things off others I’ve found and then added more specific things for myself.

As I complete each one, I’ll put a date next to it and I’ll link to the blog post about it, if I do one.
