9.) Make a bff.(HA! like that's gonna happen)
10.) Build an aviary.
11.) Be noticed for something.
12.) Meet someone famous.
13.) Be famous.
14.) Go to Austrailia.
15.) Make a bird animated movie.
16.) Go camping.
17.) Go to Hershey town.
18.) Travel to North Carolina.

I think most of it is realistic - all depends on how much effort you can afford to put in it at once (and how much money you have to afford the travel - that's been my biggest downfall in doing the things I want. Had to cancel my tour of Europe because of financial woes)!! How old are you now?

I always had peoples ages way off to. If I was fifty I'm pretty sure I'd be sewn to my death bed. :P

You could easily do a summer road trip and travel North Carolina south into FL and do a lot of things on your list The only thing I see on the list that's hard, and not really plausible, is the lottery one That one you're at the mercy of Lady Luck, not your own initiative

I've only been to Arizona, because it was a free trip, and Georgia so don't feel bad And don't feel bad as well, I've done very few things on your list, and I'm nearly 24!

Hey, I'm 52, so you would just have to change the age around from 25 to 52, and I still haven't done many of the things on your post.

The one that seems really fun to me is making an animated bird movie. I hope you can do that one. I would love to view it. It is not something I could ever do. I have no drawing skills whatsoever.

I marched in a band on Daytona beach when I was in high school. That is a fond memory. I have never driven on it. That would be interesting.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

You see all these animated dog movies and other animals I've never seen a tropical bird movie where they can talk and stuff. But they look like the real thing like in air buddies there real dogs with animated movements of the mouth.

Have you ever seen the movie Paulie? It's an old one, about a Blue-Crown Conure, and they did a little of that - animating his mouth and animatronics, but it's not that great, the movie is 11 years old now! It was one of my favorites as a kid, and I still have a soft spot for Blue-Crowns because of it Now I'm gonna have to re-watch it, it's so cute! They used something like 15 different birds to do the 'acting' for it

I've heard of it and I just watched it on YouTube. That was a cute movie. You can see when they switched birds because no bird is flighted then Opps it's clipped.
