Everyone has goals in their life, here are mine. I got this idea for an impossible list that Thomas Frank over at College Info Geek created, who got the idea from Joel Runyon on his Blog of Impossible Things. I’ve taken a few of they’re goals and added my own. So here goes, my impossible list. I really like the name of an impossible list rather than a bucket list or anything else. I am all for the idea of taking seemingly impossible tasks for myself right now and changing my life in a positive way so that I can get it done. These things may seem impossible right now but I’m going to do my best to make them possible.
