Skron said...

10/100. That's a start.

Some of what you listed are impossible for me to do. Like Boot Camp and Sky Dive.

But, if you want, I can definitely give you tips about learning how to play the guitar.

Andy said...

At least naka 10 out of 100 ka na. Slowly but surely ika nga. :)

Wala ba yung throw a shoe at GMA sa "to do list" mo? :D

Random Student said...

Kasi naman ang dami ng nasa list he-he. Pero ok na rin 'yun para pag nag-tally ka, marami pa ring nangyari. A massage monthly? Almost a year na rin akong walang massage, tsk-tsk.
