120 in my 20s

So here's a new little project of mine - basically a bucket list, but full of things I want to accomplish in my 20s. Some of them are stupid, small things that won't take any time at all, others are big projects that will require a lot of work, and others are more philosophical goals.
As I go along, I'll do a little post when I've completed one (or more!) of the goals, and cross them out on this list - and hopefully the list will get smaller and smaller as time goes on.
