25 Things I Need To Do Before I’m 25
I’m 20 right now and it’s finally hitting me that I’m an adult. Not because of my age, but because of how different my way of thinking and lifestyle is. I’m old enough where I have responsibilities, I have bills, and if I really want something, with a lot of working and a lot of saving, I know I can get it.
I’m also young enough where I think I’m invincible, I’m impulsive, and I’m still a wild child who loves exploring new things. Now before becoming a full-grown adult that’s married with kids, there’s a lot I have yet to do.
Now 25 is not at all old but I kind of want to have my life figured out by then. I know I can’t plan these things but I’m a Capricorn so obviously I’m at least going to try! If I do have a happy stable life by then though, it means I only have 5 more years of being reckless so this is how I plan to use those years up by doing:
1. Dye My Hair
There’s four colors I NEED to dye my hair and still haven’t yet; blonde, purple and blue and red. If I’m hesitant now, there’s no way I’d do it when I’m older so I need to take advantage of the whole, “who cares I’m young” excuse so while I still have it.
Even it’s for a short amount of time I really want to live in New York City, Paris, and then end up in Los Angeles.
3. Cross Country Road Trip
I’m tired of visiting the same places in this country, I just want to drop everything and visit the cities that aren’t talked about.
4. Go To a Music Festival
My Instagram feed is always blowing up with pictures of people at music festivals I’ve never heard of. I need to find a cool one so I can get on my hippie shit, cover myself with sunflowers and be one with nature already.
After I graduate I want to go to Nepal or another less fortunate country and stay there for a couple of months helping out at an orphanage.
6. Go Organic
I used to eat anything and not care about how unhealthy it was but I take a lot better care of my body now and want to eventually only buy organic things.
7. Study Abroad
Honestly one of the only reasons I didn’t give up on college was to study abroad, so it better happen!
8. Have a Nude Photo Shoot
Lets be real, our bodies aren’t looking young forever so I think this is something everyone should do while they’re still in their prime.. You’ll thank me later.
9. Learn To Skateboard
I’ve been wanting to learn this forever so if I still don’t know how to by 25, I’m giving up.
10. Create More
There are so many things I buy that I could simply create and build.. such a bad habit. I need to get into more DIYs and become self-reliant.
11. Take Random Classes
I’m talking yoga, acting, fashion design, meditation, boxing, computer programming, etc. I need to acquire new skills and get out of my comfort zone.
I can’t remember the last time I went on a run.. I’ll leave it at that.
13. Learn To Cook
If you’re an attractive boy reading this, I definitely know how to cook duh. To everyone else,
14. Get Into Gardening
I know, I sound old but I want to be able to grow my own vegetables.
15. Bungee Jump
I have no desire at all to do this because it doesn’t seem fun to me but the fact that it scares me, annoys me, and I am way too competitive to not cross this off my list.
16. Cage Diving With Sharks
This scares me less than bungee jumping.. Actually I’m excited about this one and can’t wait until I go someplace where I can actually do it.
17. Start a Retirement Fund
I really need to do this ASAP but after I finish paying off my college loans #priorities
18. Be More Spiritual
I’m spiritual but I’m really trying to be that zen, meditate every day, charging my crystals type of hippie lol.
19. Randomly Kiss Someone
Sober. During the day. That I don’t know. Walk up to them. Kiss them. Leave. Never look back.
20. Buy a Dog
I think it’s an important part of adulting. PLUS I NEED THIS DOG IN MY LIFE.
21. Find the “One”
Don’t get me wrong, I love being single and having a kid in your mid and late 30s is cool and all but it’s not the life I want for myself so Mr. Right needs to get here within the next couple of years.
22. Launch a Big Project
This can be a lot of things. Maybe release a book, give a Ted talk, get back to acting and land a part, have my blog get more successful and expand from there, who knows.
23. Live On My Own
I feel like it’s something that everyone should do at least once in their lives. No parents, no roommates, nada.
24. Go To a Protest
I’m trying to fight for what I believe in but although I see it on TV, I never hear of any protests going on around me.. I need to research more.
25. Be Rich AF
