My Impossible List

The Impossible List is not a bucket list. For me, it is a never-ending to-do list. Instead of getting smaller, like a bucket list would, it gets longer. I kept my Impossible List on my old blog, but after I wiped it and restarted, decided to start anew. Here’s to continuous self-improvement! Start Date: September 17, 2017.
