There are thousands of things we do on a lifetime, great and amazing things; there is also a “Dream List” of all the stuff we wish to do, but sometimes it just fades away. The plan for this is to Do and cross out every item on the list before time runs up.

I thought this might bring more charm to the fact that I’m getting older, but hey! they say that the thirties are the new twenties so actually, I’m getting younger.

In this list I include everything I’ve always wanted to do, some projects left behind, and also fear to face, and new good habits to maintain.

Every time I get something done I should post it and illustrate it, all that would be a post on “ITEMS FROM THE LIST” page.

Here it is the list:

  1. Retouch my first tattoo (I got this tattoo 7 years ago and I never return for the second layer so now it’s kind of blurry)
