40 by 40

This is my list of 40 things I want to accomplish before I am 40. I took the list from a 101 magazine website and although they were looking for 101 things I wanted to be more realistic with my list. Some of the things I have already done and some are really farfetched, but it never hurts to dream because you never know where life leads you from day to day. It is an incomplete list so i'm looking for suggestions and those I have already accomplished are highlighted and i also added some comments for the fun of it
