*this started as a post and i just transferred it to a separate page so i can see it and add to it at will.
i was looking at some portraits yesterday morning by chookooloonks and thought to myself, “self, you really, really want one of those.” then, it got me thinking about having that as a goal, no, a number on my lifelist. so i started thinking about the other things i’d like to accomplish before this life ends. i’m gonna start and add to it whenever i come up with something new.
