  1. Oh man, I too want to do archery. Ha the closest I have come is shooting an arrow at the Ren Faire near us. And I wasn’t bad but I wasn’t good either. Like your list!!

    I was fangirling over Quidditch in high school. It sounds like loads of fun!!!

  3. I totally agree! Books are so influential sometimes. I also want to learn to use weapons, such as a bow and arrow; Katniss looks so cool! I would also LOVE to go on a road trip with friends. I do know how to play the violin, so I guess I have that one down 😉

      ooh! Jealous! My parents SWEAR they don’t remember me begging to learn as a kid. I still think it’s selective memory on their part haha.
