I wrote most of these when I was 16 and just stored in my email as notes to myself, as things I always wanted to do and things I told myself I really wanted to do in my lifetime, things to do that’d make my life amazing. However, I’ve added a few things over time and updated some of them. I included notes to myself with some of these wishes at the time because I thought they’d make me laugh as I saw them in the future, and they still do (no matter how stupid they are), so enjoy them with me.
