Taking inspiration from Bex’s blog I decided to come up with a list of 25 things I want to do before I turn 25. Although I’m only actually going to be 23 this year, I still wanted to take part in this, and it gives me something to aim for! In May 2016 I’ll turn 25, and I’m hoping to do everything on my list before then.
1- Move Out
As much as I love living at home, I really want to move out. I want to learn to be independent, and have somewhere that’s my own place.
2- Buy a House
Ideally I want to buy a house. The more I look into this, the further away it seems. I’m already saving towards a mortgage, but even with the help to buy scheme I still need £15,000…
3- Buy a New Car
My car is an old piece of rubbish. Recently I’ve replaced the head gasket, and had it all re-welded as it’s so rusty. So I’m looking into a replacement when I can afford one!
4-Read 30 Books
I’m really hopeless with reading, I used to love it as a child but recently I find it hard to motivate myself to do. Between now and May 2016 I want to read 30 books.
5- Visit New York Again
New York is my favourite place in the whole world. In 2008 I spent 4 days there and I’ve been dying to go back since.
6- Visit Disneyland Paris Again
I’ve always been a Disney addict, and I’ve visited Disney Paris a fair few times. But it doesn’t mean I can’t again!
7- Become a Chartered Marketer
I’ve recently started working in marketing, and I really want to do some further marketing qualifications and work towards becoming a chartered marketer.
8 -Save Up Some Money
Saving money has never been my strong point, I’d always rather spend it! But I want to learn to be responsible with my money and get some decent savings together.
9 -Start Planning Towards a Masters Degree
After nearly loosing the will to live with my undergrad, for some reason I want to do a masters. Sadly it’s a huge chunk of money that I don’t have, so I really want to start planning towards getting one.
10 -Lose 5 Stone
I’m on a weightloss mission, and I’ve lost a bit so far. By the time it gets to May 2016 I really want to have lost 5 stone.
11 – Visit More Museums
I love museums, they’re always a great day out. I really want to try and visit more, I’ll have to take a look into which ones to visit!
12- Grow My Hair
When I was 17 I cut off my hair and it’s the biggest mistake I made. I really want to try and grow it back, but at the moment it won’t move past my shoulders!
13 – Stop Drinking So Much Diet Coke
I have bit of a diet coke addiction, I can rarely get through a day without having one. I really want to try and cut back, and maybe give it up altogether!
14 – Take Up A New Hobby
Recently I’ve tried to learn knitting, but gave up a bit. I really want to learn a new hobby, it would be nice to come home from work and have something to take my mind off things
15 – Go For Afternoon Tea
Going for a fancy trip for afternoon tea has been something on my to do list for the longest time.
16 – Visit a Spa
I’ve never been to a spa, and I think this is something I really need to do before I turn 25!
17 – Donate To Charity Regularly
I occasionally give to charity, and I’ve started volunteering. But I really want to be a more charitable person and find a charity to give to regularly.
18 – Cut Back on How Much Stuff I Have
I’m bit of a hoarder, I have stuff everywhere, and things in boxes I don’t even use. I want to try and cut back from my hoarding ways.
19 – Visit Amsterdam
Amsterdam is somewhere that I’ve been meaning to visit for ages. Before I’m 25 I really want to make some plans to visit
20 – Stay In A Fancy Hotel For Mine & Chris’s Five Year Anniversary
In December 2015 me and Chris will have been together for 5 years and I really want to do something nice to mark the occasion.
21 – Get It All Out
Sometimes I keep things bottled up, and I carry a lot of anger about a few things. I really want to learn how to deal with it all and get it all out.
22 –Spend More Time With My Grandparents
My grandparents mean the world to me, but as they live 2 hours away I don’t always get to spend a lot of time with them. I want to try and make more time for them, especially as they’re getting older.
23 – Get Over My Fear Of Planes
I hate planes and have some crazy irrational fear about them, despite being on one several times before! I really want to learn to get over my fears, especially as I want to go on more holidays!
24 – Learn To Be Organised
I’m a completely unorganised person. I never know where things are, and even my work inbox is an unorganised mess. I want to learn to become more organised, and then maybe I won’t spend so long trying to find things!
25 – Learn To Sleep
I’ve never been someone who sleeps well. Its only since recently I’ve started sleeping 6 hours a night, but I still find myself waking up in the night. I want to learn to sleep through the night, and to get a decent amount of sleep before I’m 25!
So there’s my 25 things I want to do before I’m 25, and with just over 2 years I think I can achieve them all in time! Do you have anything you want to do?
