Quarterlife List

October 4, 2010

So I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t having a hard time with turning 25.  I know it’s silly, big whoop, 25, but I really had a hard time with this one.  To make turning 25 a little more fun I decided to compile a list of 25 things I’d like to do in my 25th year of life.  Some of these are serious things, others are just fun.  Here goes nothing…

1. Do my hair regularly

2. Take a real vacation with Andrew…this means no family, not Mass, Texas, or Illinois.

3.Watch 10 iconic movies: Gone with the Wind, Grapes of Wrath, A Hitchcock film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Beaches, 16 Candles, Fame, Casablanca, Meet Me in St. Louis, & Bonnie and Clyde.

4. Read Enneagram

5. Purchase a house

6. Go on a mini shopping spree (like spend a couple hundred dollars in one place)

7. Break a rule (not sure what, but this should be interesting)

8. Rebuild relationships that I have lost

9. Go an entire year only eating sweets once per week…this will be the hardest one I think

10. Pay for someone’s meal anonymously that I don’t know, just because it’s nice

11.  Impact someone’s life in a positive way.

12.  Resurrect my fashion blog

13. Host a themed dinner party

14. Take more pictures

15. Grow my hair out long again

16. Catalog the clothes in my closet

17. Learn how to download songs from itunes and make playlists

18. Stop wearing glasses (could happen through miraculous healing, lasik, or finding contacts that work)

19.  Learn to ski, either water or snow

20. Don’t go to McDonalds for the entire year!  I think this will include Diet Coke.

21.  Run a 5K.

22. Go away for the weekend with my mom (we didn’t get our trip this year and I missed it)

23. Keep a journal (even if it’s just online, write in it at least once per week, this blog doesn’t count)

24. Learn how to make some of my mom’s specialty recipes (starting with Mac and Cheese and Cinnamon Apple Jello)

25. Make a promise to myself and keep it, and don’t tell anyone (even Andrew) until I turn 26.

    Everyone thought I was nuts when I was freaking out about my 25th birthday on Friday, too. “it’s not that old” “it’s not like it’s 30 or 40 or 50” etc… but I’m glad I’m not alone, lol! I love your list. I think it’s a great idea.

    I read half of the Enneagram this year before I gave up. They say you aren’t supposed to read it until you are 30 anyway… at least that’s my excuse.

    I missed our weekend too. Maybe it’s not too late!
    Or, maybe next year??

  4. […] am coming back…I know it’s been awhile, but one of the goals I have as a newly 25 year old is to resurrect my fashion blog.  I can promise you a few things.  I will not be […]
