25 While 25…

Okay, I’ve always wanted to write one of those “25 things to do before I’m 25” type bucket lists. But, for the past 10 years, that list has only contained one item:

1. Write the list

So now that I am 25, I am challenging myself to complete a list of 25 items while I am 25. And if procrastinating 25 years wasnt enough, I’ve already lost 2 months because I turned 25 in June. I’ll update the list as I complete it. Hopefully, each item will turn into a post all its own (see item #6).
Welp, here goes nothing.

1.Go to a home team baseball and football game (Nationals and Redskins)
2.Read 25 books solely for pleasure and 5 books from my High School reading list
3.Try an exotic food whose name I can not pronounce
4.Leave the country
5.Donate blood
6.Start a blog, update regularly…oh, hey there WordPress.
7.Learn to manage my money; come up with a budget and stick to it, work on my credit
8.Leave the nest
9.Learn to drive a stick
10.Shoot something ( yes, with a gun.)
11.Play a whole song on the guitar without messing up one note
12.Go completely vegetarian
13.Go one week completely media free: no phone, computer, tv, etc except as necessary for work and emergencies
14.Attend a midnight movie premiere
15.Visit a winery
16.See a show on Broadway
17.Participate in a walk for a cure/cause
18.Drive a ridiculously expensive car
19.Do something physically adverturous: 5k maybe?
20.Change my wardrobe and splurge on a designer bag or shoes that I wouldnt normally buy AND get a suit custom tailored
21.Ride every form of transportation: car, train, bus, plane and boat
22.Take more pictures and make a scrapbook
23.Become a mentor
24.Finish crocheting the blanket I started in 2010
25.Take a walk in the rain without an umbrella
