Things to do before I die (Original)

It was in my half asleep brain, that a powerful thought of preparing a list of “Things I would like to do before I die” came. A thought, which asked me to jot down the stuff I want to do or want before I retire permanently from this earth. Initially it did seem easy…but believe me, it wasn’t. [Read my original post here]

Things to do

There are a few things I have been crossed out. Obviously they have been accomplished. This list started with the initial 46 things, but continues to grow and will always be far from completion. And to tell you the truth, I would never want to cross out everything in this list. Because the things that are still uncrossed will keep me driving ahead. I just want to keep adding things.

The main reason for me putting my valuable effort in a really silly list is that, I have still not been able to understand the purpose of my existence, or what I want to do with my life. But there is one thing that I have realized. And that is that I have still not done enough with my life.

So, I decided to put down a list of things I want to do before I die. This list is neither complete nor in any particular order.

So, lets see, what I want –

  1. Attend at least one Formula 1 Grand Prix.
