Kandise has been my inspiration. I've read her LJ entries about how well she's doing with her list, so I decided to make one of my own and see how far I can get. I don't actually expect to be able to do all of these, but what the hell... it just might happen!!

Haha, good list, and good call with justifying what constitutes "learning" the guitar, because I so didn't do that. Also "scan rejection letter and post on Facebook" made me lol.

You have until Friday, November 13, 2009!!
