[Bucket List] What do you want to do before you die?


heres a short list of my bucket list
- ask a girl out
- visit a foreign country
- get a 6 pack
- sky dive
- win a fight
- get married
__________________________________________
UPDATE 9 YEARS LATER!!!!

Hi I made this 9 years ago and I would like to update this.

- Ask a girl out? Yes. Im married and have been for 5 years
- Visit a foreign Country? Yes I was in South Korea while in the military
- Get a 6 pack? No I gave up but I workout nearly everyday. It is rare that I miss a day even if im sick. I can now incline bench press 225 lbs. I am 5'3 165 lbs
- sky dive? Nope I probably wont do this anymore
- win a fight? Changed my mind about this as fighting does nothing. I realize I am now stronger than most people and I could defend myself and my wife if I need to and that to me is good enough.
- Get married? Yes

From the time I made the first post until today.
I joined the service.
I got married
I tried to commit suicide multiple times.
I retired from the military medically
I became a millionair by investing and doing right
I started college and still going today
I used my suicide as a speech in front of random people to motivate them to get better
I am now writing motivational speeches and looking back at my past including here and trying to help everyone crush their anxiety and beat their depression.

Its been a long ride and I cant believe im alive today. I found something that I absolutely enjoy and that is making speeches and traveling.
I hope you, whos reading this can realise that anxiety and depression might be hard to beat but it takes time and commitment to get there.

Im not saying my social anxiety is cured but ive became someone who ive never dreamed I would of become.

Thank you for listening

*Feel free to look at my past posts and threads from my beginning to see how ive changed today*

Pretty boring, I know...

- be intellectually challenged everyday.
- do something meaningful, have a positive impact on people's lives. Travel to poor countries and volunteer.
- become an expert and the "go to guy" in whatever I end up doing.

I am taking ASL now and it is fun to learn. These are both great resources to get you started and honestly teach the same stuff that I learn in class.
I've actually been to that second website; it looks good. I just need to make the time to start teaching myself. It seems so complicated; ASL is a language in and of itself.
