Impossible List

This list is inspired by Thomas Frank’s and Jade Bowler’s impossible lists. It is kind of a bucket list, but with a twist. Here’s the best explanation I found:

Put simply, the impossible list is an ever-evolving list of experiences that build upon each other, help others as well as yourself, and implore you to take action. This is mine, which is, of course, ever-evolving. - Thomas Frank
