I've seen this one a few times lately, but wasn't tagged, so I thought I'd take up Wanda's challenge for anyone who hadn't done it yet to get into it. Plus I love 7s.

7 things I plan to do before I die:
1) Visit Nepal.

4) Become a black belt in karate.
5) Own my own home.

7) Become fluent in Japanese.

7 things I can do:
1) Negotiate fairly.
2) Write (various kinds of writing).
