Heylo! I’m tweeting 105 firsts this year on my twitter; it’s sort of like a bucket list but with more of a spontaneous now emphasis than a planned eventually emphasis. #emily105

Since Twitter has a lousy archival system, I’m just going to list them here, so I can keep track of how many I’ve done. I know some of them weren’t intended as a 1st at the time of tweet, but I need 105 firsts, so I’m pushing it. =]
