I guess this could be considered a Bucket List. But I never saw the movie. I'll start:

-Hit a hole in one
-Play in a World Series of Poker event (not necessarily the Main Event)
-Get married (That's's happening next June)
-Go to Scotland.

Let's see.This could become a bit long...

-Become fit enough to do a marathon, triathlon, or something of that nature.
-Finish learning to become fleuent in a foriegn language. Over the years, I started to pratice French, German, Italian, and Japanese, all to forget about them in a matter of weeks.
-Finish my college degree, whether that be for History or for Hotel & Restaurant Management, which is what I'm trying for now.
-Learn to cook certain cusines, like Italian, French, or my mother's Salvadoran fare (she makes the best papusas )
-Learn to bowl at least maybe 125-150 consisently, so I can join my friends in league.
-Travel aorund the world, ala 'Globe Trekker'.
-Watch the Mets win the World Series (pipe dream for now, I know).
-Attend the Baseball Hall of Fame and as many ballparks as I can (Got started on that this year, going to Citizens Bank in Philly & Camden Yards in Baltimore as well as both now former parks in NYC).
-Attend a Giants game at the Meadowlands.
-Attend a NASCAR race (maybe next year at either Pocono or Dover).
-Drive a NASCAR-approved racecar around the racetrack for a couple of laps.
-Like RecklessEric, I would like to play in the WSOP. Or at least win a tournament at Mohegan Sun.
-Refurbish (sp.?- basically rebuild and put new electronics in) my basement.
-Buy, play, and master a new video game system like my friends have. My most recent gaming buy was with the Sega Genesis, so I'm WWWWAAAAYYYY behind.
-Secure enough money to give my parents a nice retirement.
-Visit my relatives in El Salvador.
-Find the time to set up an old-fashioned get-together with all my cousins and other family that live here in the NYC metro area, but that I've haven't seen in years.
-Live to see doctors find a cure for diabetes. Or even better...
-Live to see doctors find a cure for my sister's MS.
-Just do a really long road trip. I mean something like just driving from L.I. to Nova Scotia, then all the way west to Vancouver, then south through California and then back home. Something crazy like that for no other reason than for the fact that I like driving.
- Lastly, find my soulmate, raise a couple of kids of my own, and look back at my life and say it was worth it.

You'll notice I said "A" and not "sew a costume every damn year for Halloween" I just want to get my ability to use a sewing machine to that level instead of the "stack stuff on top of the box" where it is now.

I want to talk into a casino with $10,000, and put it all on Red 21. I figure if my life has gotten to a point where I can do that, then I likely will have done anything else I might want to do.

Currently working two jobs...I could seriously walk out of one which wouldn't be a good thing. I'm currently cleaning for the local school system making good money and the other is the supplement income.
