Mighty Life List

Here are 58 things (and counting) that I would like to accomplish with my life before it's over. It's a fairly trivial list, but I have been leading a trivial life. I wish I could say I've made a difference in someone's life, but I feel for the most part I have only brought pain and strife.

I have been making more of an effort to be a better person, someone that I would be proud of, and someone who puts others first. I don't know exactly what I'm doing here, and I feel pretty lost most of the time. All I know for sure is that I'm tired of feeling worthless and like the world would be better without me in it. I need to figure out who I am, I need to figure out what will make me happy and get out there and do it. I want to be important to someone, I want someone to remember my name. I wish I could figure out how.

I'm 25 years old, and I don't have the slightest clue what to do with my life. I don't know who I can love, I don't know who I can trust. Things are so irreversibly complicated and I almost feel that I can't keep my head above water. I want to run away and live in a shack in the mountains and just be alone. It seems no one understands me, no one can see who I am. I sound so emo bullshit right now, but I'm crying out to strangers to help me find some way to figure out who I am.

Anyway, on to my list. What do you want to do with your life?
