26 before 27

In my meanderings on the interwebs, I came across idea of making a list of x number of things before your next birthday (x=your current age). This is supposed to be realistic goals. Small (or not) things that you can be proud of for accomplishing. It's meant to be less drastic than your "bucket list," and I'm good with that.

26 Things I Want to Do Before I'm 27

  1. Go on a 25km bike ride without dying in the process.

  6. Smile at people on the street, even though they probably won't smile back.

This is a great list. I need to make one, but sadly I turned 27 a while back. I will have to do 32 things to do before I turn 33.

Extraordinary ordinary life: I feel your pain; I need to make 32 things as well

I opted that the first 26 entries should be along the line of "1. Help my wife acchieve [paste]", but that suggestion wasn't received as well as I had hoped. Bummer.

Interesting list. I'm sure you will accomplish most of them. Number 6 will be easy to do except you risk the other people thinking maybe you're a little crazy. Oh well, do it anyway. You'll feel good about it.
The pumpkin seeds below look yummy. If I was a little more ambitious I would try one of those recipes. They look awfully good. I think I tried roasting some many years ago in the oven. Can't remember how they turned out.

Dang #26 seems like a huge pain!! I need to learn how to make sock monkey's. Do you use a certain size of socks or would a pair I wear be alright?
