25 Things To Do Before 25



25 Things To Do before 25 bucket list MUST HAVES!

I’ve been reading a lot of 25 things to do before 25 lists lately and I’ve also been really big into writing down my goals. One thing I’ve come to realize is that writing down goals works! The first time I wrote down my goals was in the beginning of 2015 and let me say that year was AMAZING! I grew so much in my faith and got outside my comfort zone. One of major thing I wrote down was to not let fear stop me from taking new opportunities. I stuck with that and it manifested great things in my life. I  didn’t get to complete the list but I did get a new job, I started writing published articles both in print and online, I worked as an undergraduate researcher and I wrote and submitted a short story to a literary contest and went zip lining.

If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know I am a big proponent of making the most of your twenties. So, I decided that if I wanted great things to happen in my twenties I had to manifest it. i.e write it down and make it happen.

my 25 things to do before 25 list

  1. Get better at French
  2. Get abs (for 6 months) – I say 6 months because I know myself and I know that I’m too lazy to keep up the regimen it takes to maintain abs + I love food…. so yeah.
  3. visit 10 different countries/ cities
  4. Learn to play guitar
  5. Upgrade apartments
  6. Learn to swim – yes, I’m 21 and I still can’t swim but I can float..baby steps right ?
  7. Save more
  8. Grow my blog even more
  9.  Perform at an open mic night
  10. Graduate with my goal GPA
  11. Take more opportunities
  12. Try a new recipe every month

So far I only have 14 of 25 but I want to make sure whatever I put on the list is not arbitrary and something I would truly enjoy.
