I guess not really a game, but I thought it'd be interesting to see what everyone else has in mind. Please try and stay away from academic achievements. This is a thread about living.

Also, 5 is the minimum but you can include more.

In no particular order of significance:

1. Learn to play guitar adequately (so I can strum sad songs when it rains)
2. Learn to cook awesome ethnic dishes
3. Skydive
4. Cross-country road trip!
5. Get a boyfriend once I get into college :P

    Lol - the first one (about strumming the guitar when it rains to sad songs) made me smile. I was doing the same exact thing yesterday while it was raining w/ the lights all dim -- the best feeling I had in a long time. =D

    1) Travel the world or at least Sweden (for personal reasons...lol)
    2) See the aurora borealis
    3) Make some sort of difference in the world - start a charity or some organization geared toward helping others
    4) Hopefully find a passion that I can see in the form of a lifelong career and stick to it.
    5) Make my mom's life easier (she's been through a lot)
    6) To be perfectly human and make the most of the experiences

    2)not fail freshman year at vandy
    3)keep my scholarship
