Here's my to-do list. It's a constantly evolving record of things I've done and things I want to do. I'm terribly forgetful and need to write things down if there's to be any hope of remembering them, and I thought it would be fun to share my list with everyone. I also believe it's good motivation to keep looking at it and working toward all these goals. If I find myself doing something that doesn't bring me closer to at least one of them, I know I should stop wasting my time and get back on track. Hopefully my list will inspire you, too.

This is a map of places I want to visit and photograph! Green ones are previously visited.
