I’ve only just turned 24 and already I’m thinking about next year. Steady on, like.
I hit my quarter life crisis hard already though, and I know there’s a lot of things left that I need to have ticked off. Buzzfeed recently released a list of 25 things to do before you turn 25 and since I have 363 days left, I think I have plenty of time to get a fairly decent amount of them crossed off.
Some of them are a little basic, some seem so out there I’m not even sure I can contemplate doing them, and some I’ve already ticked off. Who knows, these might even make for great blog posts once I’ve got them done!
Go back to somewhere nostalgic from your childhood
Find a way to wake up in the morning that you don’t completely hate
Learn to cook at least three or four of your favourite meals really well
Be able to create a three-course meal suitable for a small dinner party
Decorate your rented flat to make it really feel like home
Keep a couple of house plants that aren’t cacti
Take the recommendation your friend has been giving you for years
Visit another continent
Go on at least one city/town break to somewhere in your own country you normally wouldn’t think of visiting
Take your family out for dinner. Make it a surprise
Ask your boss for a pay rise
Learn a new skill (a foreign language, an instrument etc)
Watch 100 of the IMDb top 250 movies of all time
Organise a monthly dinner with friends you don’t see all the time so you don’t fall out of touch

Before June 27 2017, I’m going to aim to have as many as possible ticked off. Do you think I can do it?
