Life List

Brought to you by Google Girls™.

Every Saturday night Mysti, Jenn & I do a Google Hangout together, which I refer to as Google Girls. We generally start sometime after 8PM West coast time, until sometime before 2 AM. Most people know or use Skype, but that is limited to a video connection between two computers so we use Google Hangout since we’re in 3 different states. (Oregon, California & Utah)

We talk about EVERYTHING this means that the “what do you want to do with your life” question comes up at least once. Some people call it a “bucket list,” which comes from the phrase “kick the bucket,” meaning a list of things you want to do before you die. I prefer to call it a Life List, or things I’d like to do with my life.

I told the girls I had one, recently compiled, that was more easily shared on my blog. Enjoy!
