I decided it would be a good idea to have an actual list instead of just have all of these thoughts floating around in my head. Hopefully I'll be able to cross off many, if not all, of these in the near future. The list is in no particular order, and it should be no surprise that a lot of them have to do with photography (especially all the trips).
