25 Before 25

I recently read a post by Carly the Prepster where she turned thirty and followed up on a post she had made years in advance. “30 things she wanted to do before she was thirty!” I thought this was a pretty cool idea and decided to copy it! Obviously I’m still a ways off from thirty, but I thought since in two years I’ll be twenty-five why not shoot for 25 things before I turn twenty-five. Did you follow all that?

By the way finding 25 things that I wanted to accomplish or experience in two years time is not as easy as you think. I mean you guys write up your bucket lists and see what you can come up with. After a while it was like pulling teeth and so some of my entries are a bit impossible.

  1. See the Indian Ocean(the only ocean I haven’t seen)
  2. Take up tap dancing again
  3. Learn to like(or at least understand) poetry
  4. Read War and Peace
  5. Visit Israel
  6. See a Broadway Musical on Broadway
  7. Bake a soufflé
  8. See Yellowstone(most of my things have to do with traveling don’t they?)
  9. Go rock wall climbing
  10. Go sailing
  11. Try surfing(or something to do with the water)
  12. Take up needle point
  13. Get my blog up to four posts a week
  14. Get out of my comfort zone as much as possible
  15. Stop over thinking things
  16. Learn more about the old West
  17. Declutter my life
  18. Become a prayer warrior
  19. Learn a musical instrument
  20. Go to a Packer’s game!
  21. Publish my books…
  22. Visit a Tropical island
  23. Go scuba diving
  24. Go on a missions trip
  25. Learn ASL

I think I should insert a caveat: yes the goal is to check every single one of these things off the list, but do I honestly think I will do all these things? Yeah no! What about you guys? What are some things on your bucket lists? Stay tuned to guys in two years(Lord willing and I’m still blogging) we’ll see how many of these things I actually do.

Lots of love,

I am a twenty something year old live-in, Christian nanny. Basically a modern day Mary Poppins. If I'm not chasing around six amazing kids I'm writing my blog or the handful of novels I have going; reading (a lot), baking, eating (a lot), or going on exciting adventures. All of my misadventures I share here with you guys! So grab ahold of my umbrella, something's about to begin.
