Do the 62-62-62 Challenge

OK, so this is how this challenge works. This goal focuses on finding 62 things that I want to do. I then need to do each item at least 62 times or some degree of 62, like 620, 6,200, etc. All of this must be completed before I turn 62. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do enough to do 62 times. Below is the list I came up with. NOTE: It's best to try this goal early on in life, like doing 20 things, each item 20 times before you're 20 years old. The longer you put this goal off, the longer the list gets. Know what I mean?
