53 for me - had a baby 3 times, but only counted it once. :)

what an interesting list, and kind of idiosyncratic. makes me think about the things i'd put on a list. some of the items on this list were great and i wouldn't have thought of them for my list, so very glad they were on this one!

it'd be kind of hard to do it at my advanced age of 51, because i wonder if i'd just list things i've already done and places i've already been, which would bias it in some way.

boy, i really know how to overthink an enjoyable activity. :)

I'm going to have to check this list again to see what all I've done.

Chasity said...

Thanks - I love this. Just "borrowed" it for my blog:

There are some things I would add and some things I would take off but I love this list! I'm going to do it on my blog, can't wait to see how many things I've done..

Wow, I didn't count, but it sure was fun going through and remembering so many of the things that I have done that are on the list. What a fun exercise.

very cool, thanks for sharing. i really need to do it. i was kind of keeping track as i read your answers, and i was surprised that i've done most of these things. i've lived such an offbeat life, i usually don't score "high" on these types of lists.

have a lovely day!
