25 Things Before 25

25 Things Before 25

I’m sure I’m not the only one to think this, but as soon as you’re coming closer to the top end of your 20’s you shit yourself a bit. I am anyway. There’s a lot of pressure to compete with other people, the first to buy a house, the first to get married, the first to get their dream career, blah, blah, blah. How about the stuff that you actually want to do, the little things that are so ridiculously stupid but that you’ve wanted to do for ages?

So whilst I was pondering the closeness of being a quarter of a century, I’ve compiled a list of 25 ridiculous things and changes that I need to tick off my list before I reach the big 25.

God loves a trier so here goes:

  1. Go to a theme park. I’ve never done this, yes I know, I haven’t lived. What even is Oblivion?

  2. Run a half marathon. I ran 5k the other day and didn’t pass out so I might be on to a winner here.

  3. Change my hair. I’ve had so many different hair colours in my lifetime but have stuck to blonde for the past 8 years of my life, I fancy another change.

  4. Read my favourite book. Again.

  5. Finish my exams. I’m sick of studying and want my social life back so the quicker the better.

  6. Go to the Globe Theatre.

  7. Get my car professionally cleaned. I’m so lazy when it comes to things like this, but I feel like this would be a good starting point on the road to proper adulthood.

  8. Take more pictures. I’m going to take my digital camera to Flares and see what happens. Once I complete point 5 of course.

  9. Plan a girls night out. And make an effort to dress up. Again complete point 5.

  10. Go to London. And go to a really expensive cocktail bar.

  11. Have a picnic with all my friends in one place.

  12. Go to a gig. I miss sipping cider at rock gigs and being in the middle of a mosh pit.

  13. Stop hoarding and aim to be minimalistic.

  14. Be spontaneous. 

  15. Go without social media.

  16. Be comfortable with my body.

  17. Do an all nighter. I don’t mean sitting in a field and drinking strongbow, an all nighter that means watching films and eating until my heart is content.

  18. Learn to be more experimental with my fashion.
  19. Cut down on the swearing. 

  20. Write more. I want to start writing a novel.

  21. Explore new bands. I’ve been listening to The Hunna on repeat for over a year now and I need to find something new. Suggestions?

  22. Get better at cooking. 

  23. Volunteer at an animal shelter. 

  24. Treat myself. I don’t own anything designer.

  25. Go a week without coffee. 

I’ve tried to be realistic here with my list. I would have loved to write down things like go on safari, go to Mexico etc..but these things will not happen in 7 months, unless I win the lottery. Which could happen? But I’m not holding out for much.

I think it’s good to write down what things you want to accomplish, it sets things in stone, and now this is on the internet for all to see, I have to complete it, right? I am thinking about my 30 things before 30, but lets reach this milestone first…

How are people finding their 20’s?
