    That’s a looong list but you’ve done pretty well.
    Pet a wolf?! Hmmm…

    It’s a long one alright. I’m hoping to live a long life!
    I’ve had hand written lists I’ve saved from a few different years. I combined them all to post today. I’d love to pet a wolf. Wolves are my favorite animal. Thanks for reading.

    nice 🙂

  4. lesleycarter · September 7, 2011

    Beautiful! Good luck 🙂
    With a list like that, I’m sure someone looks up to you 🙂

    Thank you!

    You’ve done para-sailing and sky-diving? Wow =D

    • Nicole · September 9, 2011

      Yes. Both experiences I will never forget.
      My skydiving video is posted on my blog under “uncategorized” if you’re interested in watching it. ^_^

      • bunnythewabbit · September 10, 2011

        It says the video isn’t available because you closed your YouTube account =S

      • Nicole · September 10, 2011

        I realized that yesterday. It looks like my Youtube account was hacked into. My account was deleted. Luckily I have most of my videos saved. I will have to open a new account and upload the videos I have backed up.

    pet a wolf – nice.

  8. Kirsten Lopresti · September 18, 2011

    Love your list! I hope you do all of it. I’d skip bungee jumping, though. I did one of those bungee chair things once, and I have never been more terrified in my life!

  9. Nicole · September 18, 2011

    Thanks, Kirsten.
    For some reason, bungee jumping scares me a bit. I was not scared while skydiving. Interesting. I still hope to do it, though.

    If you ever come down to Florida, I’ll take you out on the water so you can scratch Kayaking off the list.
