Impossible List

I learned about The Impossible List from a very cool Youtuber/ Blogger/ Podcaster, Thomas Frank at College Info Geek who learned about it at Impossible, the original impossible list creator.

I was in a funk, feeling like my life of working 40+ hours a week and spending my weekends on a friend’s couch eating Coke floats watching Downton Abbey was too average. I went to the internet and re-found Thomas’ Impossible List and thought I would give it a try.

Challenges make us thrive and add excitement and purpose to our lives and that’s part of the reason Joel Runyon created the idea.

The items on my list are things that currently seem Impossible to me, but are things I would love to do and will inspire me when I need it.
