  1. As for No.6, I started to learn another language – Japanese – but past a certain level, I was unable to advance higher toward fluency. So I stopped. 😦

    I wouldn’t mind seeing flowing lava either, especially if it’s in Hawaii’s big island. Also, Aurora Borealis I wouldn’t mind, except change it to Aurora Australis, because I’m Australian… Though hey, trip to Canada anyone? That’d be cool…

    31’s an obvious must, although I would also add traveling to Japan.

    40’s obviously the least likely to happen in this lifetime on that list. But hey, good luck in changing a paradigm! I imagine its harder than it sounds, and not just because people get attached to their paradigms…
