Too Much Left To Do

    A lot of times it is extremely difficult to think of reasons to keep on living... One of the few things I've discovered that can help me to get through those times, is to focus on all the things I haven't done in my lifetime, that I would like to do before I shove off forever. My list includes things I could conceivably get around to fairly soon, such as visiting Carlsbad Caverns, but I have also deliberately included things that will not happen for many years, such as seeing Halley's Comet again.

    I'd be interested to hear some of the life goals that keep you all going... I found this rather generic list, which may help you all get started in making your own lists. Some of it is rather silly, but I found several things on there which I ended up adding to my own list.

    (Apologies if this, or something similar has already been posted!)

    I like lists like these, the problem is there is no money to do anything on them.

    So right now my list looks like this

    1. Pay parents back
    2. Save money
    3. Move out
    4. Get in great shape
    5. study study study, good grades
    6. Find friends, hopefully girlfriend
    7. Sustain myself through college on my own
    8. Graduate college
    9. Find job
    10. Do everything on your list :)

    I'm still at number one :( but I think after number 2 my life will improve a lot when I break free from the prison of debt.

    I want to go to Machu Pichu, I saw a documentary about it and for some reason I immediately felt that i had to go there. I dream about it sometimes.
