This morning I had the terrifying realisation that I am turning 25 next year. Whilst I obviously know how old I am, I have never really considered how close I am to the dreaded mid-twenties, and I think it’s safe to say that if anyone is going to have a quarter life crisis, it’ll be me.
But, being the optimistic girl that I am, I swiftly wrote myself a bucket list of 25 things I want to do before I’m 25. I turn 25 in September 2017, and I am feeling confident that a new me is just around the corner.
I know most of these are ridiculously simple and you’ll probably think I’m the most boring person in the entire world, but as I’ve already been to 15 countries in the space of 14 months, and am probably the poorest I’ve ever been in my life, I thought I could leave the adrenaline filled activities for now.
I’ve hang-glided in Rio, got lost in Colombia (FYI the scariest day of my entire life), watched the sunset in the Atacama desert, temple hopped in Myanmar and woken up at 4am to visit a fish market in Tokyo, so please don’t judge me for trying to make something of my life in the UK with a seriously boring checklist.
Here is my bucket list, or the 25 things to do before I turn 25
