    Every trip I've taken has changed my life or outlook in some truly profound way. I hope everyone can get the opportunity to travel at some point. Also see THE BEST THINGS ABOUT TRAVELING ALONE
  2. A mindfulness meditation course
    I'm not great about keeping up a daily practice but I love the little informal techniques it taught me to be a more mindful, less anxious person
  3. A gym membership

  4. A condo
