My 25 Before 25 Bucket List

In approximately 439 days 10,548 hours, I will be turning 25. Yes, I can see how it might seem like it is a long ways away, but in actuality, I know it will be there before I know it.  

It made me start to think, what have I done with my life thus far? 

Yes, I know I have accomplished a lot, but I want to make sure I'm living my life purposefully, not be default.

That being said, I decided to come up with a 25 Things I Want to do Before I'm 25 list. It's basically a bucket list, but I didn't want to call it that as I don't plan on dying by the age of 25! 

But what better way to stay accountable and make sure I actually do it by tracking it with my blog?

So here is my list. As I complete them, I'll cross them off, and do my best to write a little blog about what happened each time.  If you think of something I should add to my list, (realistically speaking!) let me know :)

I realize that some may sound lame to you, and some may sound absolutely impossible, but for me there is usually a reason behind each one. 

I'll be honest, I'm actually freaking out as I write this, knowing that all of cyberspace will know my goals and whether or not I reach them. But better this than having them on some list that gets lost in my purse, and never knowing if I ever achieved what I was aiming for!
