40 by 40 - the updated list

A while back I made this list of 40 things that I would like to accomplish by the age of 40, check here for the list. I think it is time that I update the list, although I am not that close to 40, i'm only 26 years old, (lol, that's an inside joke)... so here is my updated list, which also includes suggestions from friends. Some of the things I had already achieved since the previous list and some are newly achieved (yay for me) and the rest are in the making. Those that i have done are in red. so here is my list:

40 by 40
