Before Twenty Five


Each day is an adventure not to be wasted!

I am always adding things to my bucket list. Really - it's a rarity if I go a full week without adding a new experience I somehow learned about and decided I need to do before I die. Browsing around the internet I've been coming across a ton of "before 25" or "before 30" lists, lists I've never really thought of composing until now.  It wasn't until this morning when I began thinking about short term goals that I realized the benefits of having a defined list of things I want to accomplish relatively soon. When you think you have your whole life to do something it's easy to put it off, and I can think of few things worse than waking up one morning and realizing that years of wonderful opportunities had passed you by.

Things I'd like to accomplish before my twenty fifth birthday:

- Receive a bachelors degree in journalism and new media
- Backpack through South America
- Volunteer in a third world country
- Go bungee jumping
- Go skydiving
- Become 100% fluent in German
- Become conversational in Spanish
- Run a Marathon
- Learn how to surf
- Learn how to play the piano
- Climb a mountain
- Purchase a starter home

I know most people have a list of twenty five things, but I honestly couldn't think of twenty five things I really wanted to do by the time I'm a quarter century old. Instead I've listed only the pretty big things.  We'll see what the next five years bring.

Do you have any goals or plans for the near future? Please share.

Regardless if there aren't 25 things on this list - it's a great list that anyone would be proud to have completed.

I'd add a few of these things to my own list.

This is a great little list. How long do you have to accomplish these things? I would make a Before I'm 30 list, but I am fast running out of time!

I've got my bucket list, but nothing on a time table.

I add to my bucket list ALL the time!! I also have to go back and cross things off that I've done! (in which, I cross something off..I add something on)..It's a long cycle of things I'd like to do before I die! haa

As for 25, I have a few things I'd like to accomplish or do before I hit 25. I have 3 years to do it...so We will see how it goes.

All power to ya - those are some ambitious goals but if anyone can do it, you can. I took piano for years rwhen I was little and just could never do it. I think I'm rythmless and anyone who has seen me dance could testify

Allison said...

What a great list! And ambitious too! I made a before 25 list last year and I only have until October to complete it! Yikes!

Here is my list: http://shuttersandshuttles.com/happy2012/

well, you've got 5 years to do all of this, so I'd say that it's doable... I should probably make one of these... My 25th is next year! AAHHH!!

You've inspired me... I'm going to make a list to accomplish before my next milestone birthday :)
Best of luck with yours!

Backpacking around South America is on the top of my list, and I am planning to do next spring/summer (at least the Northern part of the continent). I can't wait! You have quite an ambitious list, a great inspiration. Best of luck on all your endeavors, I have no doubt your life will be one big adventure in your attempts to accomplish all the goals on your list :)
