3. spend an afternoon in a museum by myself
4. make & maintain an inspiration board (done, kind of)
5. send more handwritten letters & cards
6. take pictures with holga & develop more film (working on)
7. see a movie at the drive-in
8. make my photos available for sale in a local shop (done, at my show!)
9. travel by train (done, 26 hour trip home from florida in april)
10. have a picnic in a cemetery
11. take a class
12. get my own photo exhibit in a gallery/art show (done)

ohhh, great list! Suggestion, go to the park, and tie a small camera to the kite...I did that, sooo fun.

I'm interested in No. 12. Lemme know how you go about that; I'm hoping to do the same thing in the future.

ooh, i love the restaurant jar idea! what a great way to break out of a dining rut. we go to the same places all the time (for good reason).

you are inspiring me to make a similar list. mine will have to be "before my 36th year". yikes.

you will have to keep us posted on your progress!

i definitely will! my plan is to try to document everything i finish from the list with a photograph. i cant wait to see your list!! definitely check out andrea's (link in post), she is where i got my inspiration and she has lists going back 3 or 4 years!

the restaurant jar was created because too many times, my friends and i couldnt decide where to eat. it's for those times when you can both think of ten different places that are good, but you just cant decide which one to go to! it's also a way to throw new places into the mix. i actually do the "lottery" system for other things, like when trying to decide which movie to go see, etc. maybe this comes from the fact that i am an elementary school teacher by day...haha!
