An impossible list

I have been subscribed to Thomas Frank Youtube channel for at least the last 5 years (or even more). I don´t know how I did find it, but I really like how he has evolved.

One of the things that I most admire about him is his Impossible list. A concept that makes "A bucket list" even better. It supposes to showcase proof of them and grow and change with my life. And something that I´m more clear is that an intentional life requiere clarity to make the goal attainable.

This is the impossible list that I wrote 15 years later that I got evicted from my family home. Now I´m a 32-years old grad student in the US, but hopefully, some of the things on this list will make me get through this. Also, part of this list is an ongoing conversation with my covalent Matí because married life isn´t shared goals?
