Yesterday, I turned 20. In light of this milestone, I took a look back at my Before-I-Turn-30 Bucket List to see how far I’ve come. I only completed 3 items out of 50 before turning 20, which means that to complete the list in time, I’ll need to check off about 5 items each year through my twenties.
In 2014, I checked off #2 Skydiving, #22 Hiking Mt. Katahdin, and #33 Roasting marshmallows in my fireplace. I also got 1/10 of the way through #12, which is to read 60 classic books that I hadn’t read prior to making the list. I feel good about getting as far as I did, especially since I’m young and make practically no money.
With the money issue in mind, the items I want to complete this year are:
#5 – Go Hang Gliding
#10 – Go to Times Square for New Year’s Eve
#19 – See the new Diagon Alley section of Harry Potter World
#20 – Swim with Manatees
#48 – Go to a Renaissance Festival
Additionally, I need to read at least 5 more classics by my 21st birthday. I’m also planning a trip to Peru in August, during which I’ll complete 1/7 of #47 – See all new seven wonders of the world – by visiting Machu Picchu.
Officially saying goodbye to my teens has been a long time coming. Now that I’ve finally entered my 20s, the game is on to finish my list.
