we’re all gonna die right?
obviously we’re all obsessed with this fact because people love making bucket lists. i read some yogi article earlier this year about doing reverse bucket lists to celebrate all of the living you did the previous year. i’ve been keeping a tally and whoa, 2013 was a busy one!
check my list for some of 2013’s moves and be sure to do your own. you’ll either be proud of all you accomplished or realize that you need to get moving asap for 2014.
