25 things to do before i turn 25

Some of you may remember the list of 24 Things To Do Before I Turn 24 that I recently did. Rather than giving myself six months to complete the list, I'm starting early this year! Here's my list of 25 Things To Do Before I Turn 25. I don't turn 25 until May of next year so this should give me plenty of time to complete it. You'll notice that I included the things on my previous list that weren't completed. And I've already made two accomplishments. Yay!

1. Ride in a hot air balloon
2. Do a cleanse or detox
3. Lose 15 pounds and keep them off
4. Watch a really good meteor shower in 2011 or 2012 I saw one or two during the Quadrantids
5. Go to a winery
6. Join a yoga class
7. Get a credit card for the sole purpose of building credit
8. Watch seasons 7 through 12 of Law & Order: SVU
9. Have at least one non-spending month (only on food, bills, business, etc.)
10. Organize receipts and papers
11. Keep my plant, Vladimir, a Pilea mollis, alive for another year Unfortunately he didn't make it
12. Take a self defense class
13. Join ASMP and/or APA
14. Learn more about Buddhism I've been going to a meditation class off and on for a few months
15. Go to Las Vegas for New Year's Unfortunately, this won't be happening after all...
16. Buy the perfect trench coat
17. Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge at night Well, you can't walk across it at night, but I did walk across during the day!
18. Do more DIY projects
19. Take up running again
20. Write a short story, send it to be published and frame the rejection letter
21. Stay up all night and watch the sun rise
22. Start a potted herb garden It's not an herb garden, but Sean and I got some plants for our apartment and so far they're still alive!
23. Talk to my brother and sister more (rather than hearing it all from our mom)
24. Floss (my teeth) and stretch (my body) more often
25. Move out of my parents' house

FLOSS!! don't wait, don't put it off. it seems irrelevant, trivial.

"20. Write a short story, send it to be published and frame the rejection letter."

That one made me laugh!

I'd totally stay up all night with you... haven't done that for many years.

I'm interesting in your "non-spending" month... maybe I'll do that with you. It'll be a good challenge for me.

Also, I don't think you -can- walk across the Golden Gate bridge at night? I thought it closed at 9... though maybe that's just for bikers...?

What if you get an acceptance letter instead of a rejection letter? :)

I love this list! I have a 25 things list too, and mine also includes having a potted herb garden.

Frame rejection letter haha. I've always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon too! Great list
