Sarah_Rodeghero's Profile:

I am 27 years old and I have a lot of things that I want to do before I check out. I am adventurous and open-minded, so my list should be pretty ambitious, but I've got time. If you see anything on my list that you can give me tips on please let me know. I can't wait to get started. I hope you enjoy reading my list!




Be in 4 states at once
I want to go to that 4 state intersection and lay down on the spot so that I'm in all 4 states at once. By the way if you do somthing illegal there which state arrests you?

What about Wiener Circle in Chicago!?! Although I don't think I've ever eaten there outside of bar time (when I'm not much of a food critic).





Eat some sort of game meat
I've had alligator and raw eel, but I haven't had wild game yet. I hear that it's pretty good so I'm game lol.

Get certified in CPR
It's always a good idea to be prepared so why not be prepared to save a life?

Completed!
I got certified in swimming camp! It was pretty easy but there was a test involved. My certification has since lapsed, so I really should go get recertified.

I'm kind of nervous about this, but it sounds really cool! I almost went with my mom, but she decided that she wanted to ride horses instead. Next time we will opt for the zip-lines!
