100 Dreams

This is just an exercise. This will probably all be about material things. I won’t write down things like, “happiness, good health, love”. we all know we wish and dream of those things. and these will be more ‘selfish’ wishes. some might seem selfless but i’m doing them primarily because i want to and because i can (in this dream list). 🙂
