honest adventures of em

Queer. NYC. Plant-Based. Travels.

Live a simple, happy, meaningful life.

With that being said, here is a list of goals / wants / dreams I have. The only constant in life is change. As people grow and discover more of themselves and the world, the things on our lists will evolve with us. I believe having a bucket list keeps us young and alive. Let’s our imaginations run free. Keeps our adventurous sides always wandering. Some of the things on this list are more concrete, others are more so “things to live by” and abstract.

Here is my constantly changing list (including some past goals I have completed):
