China: Hopes, one day

Journalist-blogger Taras posts a list [zh] today of all the things he hopes yet to do: 1. Be a foreign correspondent in any country; 2. Find the one thing that he likes most to do in this life; 3. Figure out women's hearts; 4. Learn how to play pizzazzy songs on the clarinet; 5. Travel the silk road twice: first time alone, second time with his wife; 6. Make out with a girl from a different country; 7. Buy a laptop which allows text input through writing on the screen; 8. Take his parents around the world within the next 3-5 years; 9. Find a reason to fight somebody; 10. Die and leave behind writings that make people remember more than his name and face.
