200 before 30

It's ridiculous but I've been alive for 21 years.
I feel like there is so much I would like to accomplish 
yet I never have the time or energy to do it.
I was on the phone the other day with a dear friend from high school
he expressed how with everything he has accomplished,
he doesn't know if he ever contributed to the world.
I always say I am still young and ready to take the world by storm
but. a few weekends ago, I was doing what 'old' people do
attending weddings, and experiencing death.
One of my acquaintances from university has unfortunately passed away
(RIP Hugo)
and it got me thinking,
if I were to get into an accident tomorrow, 
would I be happy with what I've done in my life?
So this is my bucket list. Before I am thirty, I want to accomplish these things.
I want to give myself a deadline to do things with my life
200 things averages out to around 25 a year for 9 years.
I can do it.
