There are always these little things in life that you wish you would take the time to do or learn, but for whatever reason you put them to the side. They’re not dire needs and so you figure what’s one more day of not making the attempt. I’ve had more than a few these I’ve wanted to scratch off my list and really why haven’t I? I certainly waste more time on less meaningless nonsense. So with that I decided to finally put these little things down on a simple reminder list. So far, most of what I have listed has lived in my head and I may or may not have expressed some aloud. These are not in any particular order.
