Your list is not boring. The special things you have done are just not on the list like:
1.reinvest in an art career.
2.have the courage to go to art classes.
3. take making art seriously
4. being an inspiration for my blogging friends......

Interesting list - but I take issue with #53:

Played in the mud (I can't remember that either, but I was a child once, so probably)

You've been working with clay, hence working in mud - so definitely you have playing in mud very recently!!!
