3rd December 2012 07:34What Do You Want To Do Before You Die?
My list of 100 things I want to achieve, while I'm still able, before I die.
â€œDo it now, because life is too short.â€
Hey! My name is Dalton Christopher, and after watching the MTV show â€œThe Buried Lifeâ€, I was inspired to create my own list of 100 things I want to do before I die. I am 19 years old, a freshman at Eastern Kentucky University, and a 2012 Graduate of Mercer County Senior High School. As on the show, for every item I cross of my list, I want to help someone else cross something off theirs. There is no time table for this list, the list ends when my time on Earth ends. I do realize a lot of the things on the list seem unrealistic, but I believe anything is possible, and I might as well try. I realize life is short, and I want to try to live a life worth living, and help someone do the same. If anyone could help me with any of these items, Iâ€™d greatly appreciate it, and would be glad to do my best to help you complete something on yours. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
â€œIt is nothing to die. It is frightful not to live.â€
