Recently, I was looking through my Facebook account- taking a trip down memory lane with my older posts. The account I currently have,  I have had since 2011. I was about fourteen when I made this account; so it’s safe to say that there’s a lot of embarrassing things on there. However, the one thing on that stuck out to me on my account was my bucket list I made back in 2011. That old bucket list has been sitting there on my account for about six years. I have not completed any of them.  I never did any of them simply because I just never got around to doing them because there was never enough time or I wasn’t “old enough.”

I decided to fix that by creating my “impossible list.” I got this idea from two blogs that I read all the time. The two people who inspired me to make my impossible list are Thomas Frank, owner of College Info Geek, and Joel Runyon, who is the person who created the first impossible list. What’s the difference between a bucket list and the impossible list? An impossible list is a list that is always evolving. Everything you put on that list with changes because when you complete one item, you add something else that builds off that item.

This list is entirely personal, but after a lot of thinking, I decided to put it on my blog so that I can be held accountable for actually completing these items.
