I put together a list of 55 things that I would like to do in 2012. I originally saw this idea on Flip-Flops and Polka Dots with 101 things, but that seemed like a lot. Plus, I had to try really hard to come up with 55. I borrowed a few items on my list from some different sources (this listthis list, and this list), but most of these I came up with on my own.
