25 Before 25

I haven't been writing often, and maybe it's because I've been busy at work, and mentally exhausted when I come home, or maybe it's because I have nothing to write about, but it's as if a switch has gone on and I must write, I must. Before I get into the details of what I've been up to and what exciting events are coming up in my life, I wanted to share my 25 before 25 list. I was inspired by a friend of a friend when I saw pictures of all of the things she was doing, and planning to do before she turned 25. That was when it hit me... I would be turning TWENTY-FIVE this year... no, it can't be. As much as I've been trying to push it aside, it's going to come along, and I thought why not make this year all about doing things I've never done before, traveling where I've never been, and becoming more of an adult every day of the year. I decided to make my own list ... 25 things I want to accomplish by the time I'm 25, which just so happens to be in December. 25 is just a number, not at all feeling 24, almost 25.

It took me quite some time to figure out my list, because I was afraid of putting huge things on the list, huge life-changing things for fear that I would not accomplish them, and be able to cross them off. I put small things, at first, but then realized I wanted to make this a big year for me. I pushed aside my fear, and wrote.
