A brother of mine once explained to me the most valuable thing we can invest in is experiences. You can spend your money on expensive things or you can take your money and have an adventure with it. One of these will eventually break over time, the other will be with you until you die. One can be passed down and eventually thrown away. The other can be passed down and immortalized into legend. OK, so maybe not legend, but you get what I mean.
In true video game fashion, I’m going to utilize this post for tracking my “achievements”. Thanks to Joel Runyon and his “Impossible List” for giving me the inspiration to start this.
