In the Spirit of the Coming New Year

Things I Want to Do Before I Die (in no particular order):

*Visit every continent, including Antarctica. (3 down, 4 to go)
*Swim with the wild.
*Travel to Italy.
*Travel to Denmark and visit where my ancestors came from.
*Travel to Lithuania and visit where Nathan's ancestors came from.
*Own a vineyard, even if it's just a small one.
*Live somewhere other than the lower 49 states for a year.
*Get my masters in either teaching or theatre.
*Become a police officer.
*Build our dream house.
*Have at least one child.
*Go to a 2 week cooking school in Italy with my mom (requires a 2nd trip, of course).
*Direct a play for a theatre company.
*Teach theatre to high schoolers.
*Work at a Young Life camp for a year.
*Participate in a fundraising marathon for cancer.
*Learn to build log furnature, and build a log bed.
*Perform as Eponine in Les Mis.
*Spend a week by myself in a cottage by the ocean, just reading and walking the beach. Repeat at least once every 2 years.
*Visit all 50 states (18 down, 32 to go).
*Go on a cruise.
*Win a photography contest.
*Go to an NFL game.
*Complete my family tree.
*Complete Nathan's family tree.
*Get my motorcycle endorsement and buy a Harley.
*Start or become involved in an Ovarian Cancer awareness group in honor of Marla.
*Open a wine shop like what Bella's use to be before it became snobby.
*Have a room/outbuilding where Young Life kids can come hang out whenever they want, complete with a rockin' home theatre.

That's what I have so far, I'm sure more will be added later.

Neat list! I'm not sure what Jennifer Gardner movie you are talking about, but this movie actually has Hillary Swank in it.
