The List: Combined 2013/2014 Edition

The List is an annual compilation of 100 things that I've never done before (or haven't done recently), but would love to complete. The List was inspired by my friend MK.

2013 marked my FIRST go-round at list writing and tackling. However, when I created the list in 2013, my goal to complete a quarter of the list proved to be a bit too ambitious. So, in 2014 I decided to keep chipping away at my original goal to complete 25 items, using more or less the same list, but with a few tweaks (including some bonus items). It was at that point that my inaugural "2013" list morphed into the Combined 2013/2014 Edition.
