50 things that I am proud of!

Earlier last week, one of my friends asked me to list down all the super cool stuff I have ever done in my life, and that is when it struck me that I have done more things in life than what I remember. The very next day, I started making a list – list of all the cool stuff (at least in my point of view) that I have ever done so far.

So, below is the list:
