Yay congratulations for your exam results and getting into uni! That's awesome news :-)

It's so good to make lists like this, then go back and realise how much has been achieved. At this rate you'll need to make a new list soon because you'll be running out of things to tick off ;)

Those are awesome! I have a list of 100+ goals as well. We have a few of the same ones: the vegetable patch, sushi, ballroom dancing, having a child, random plane ticket to anywhere, learning another language, living in another country, being published... also yoga and spa day, but I accomplished those two!
