This is NOT a bucket list.

It is an agenda of challenges, not a 'must-do-before-I-die' to-do list.

It is a backlog of crazy ideas, interests and worthwhile endeavours.

It shows the evolving boundaries within which I want to explore life.

It is a tool and a reminder for keep exploring and living a live without regret.
