My Bucket List–100 things to do before I die!

So today is my 25th birthday, and that means I’ve basically lived 1/4 of my life—scary! But, it’s also really exciting because I think in my 25 years I’ve accomplished quite a lot of things that I’m really proud of.

This of course, led me to think about the many, many years ahead of me and all the things I still want to accomplish and do in my life.  So I decided to make a list–a bucket list–of 100 things I want to do before I die.

Just for the record, this list is more of fun things, it’s doesn’t include any career aspirations because I wanted it to be lighthearted.

I hope this list inspires some of you to think about your own life goals and make your own bucket lists! Remember, it’s never too late! Maybe some of the things I have on my list will be something you want to add to yours, in any case, good luck and enjoy!
