To complete this goal: Record (either on my Zoom H4n or on paper) at least five stories (each) about and from my parents growing up. Ideally, at least five from each of my maternal grandparents, too.
Why? I'm pretty close to my parents, and I generally think they are cool, awesome people. In a slightly morbid vein, I'd like to get some of their exciting histories down in their own voice or words so I'll have something of them after they're gone.
