Mandy Moore Is Making Her List

I know some of you are saying, ‘but didn’t playing Jamie help you to realize that?’ the truth is… it did. But I needed that influence to pick up my pen and pick apart my brain again. To make my point… skydiving was something on my list and crazy as it may seem climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is on my list too… hehe. Other random desires include: Throwing a fancy dinner party, opening a theater for young people, learning to knit a scarf. At this time, I have over 150 crazy things on my list, and it’s growing everyday. I would encourage everyone to write a list. It’s exciting to think of the possibilities.”
