25 before 25

I really can’t believe I’m 24 today. That’s serious mid-twenties. Wasn’t I just counting down the moments until I was in the double digits? I feel like every year goes by faster. I’ve accomplished a lot so far and I’m just beyond excited (and ready) to accomplish even more. I have a feeling that this year is going to be the best one yet.
A great blogger I follow, Mackenzie, has a 101 in 1001 list, but it’s way too intense for me! I opted to do a 25 before 25 list.
Between today and my 25th birthday, I want to accomplish everything on this list! I think it will be a fun way to do some things that I really have always wanted to do. Some will push my outside of my comfort zone, but all will be amazing memories.
  1. Make an apple pie from scratch.
  2. Ride a hot air balloon.
  3. Day trip to a Vineyard. Went to Byington Vineyard up in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
  4. Visit a city I’ve never been to before. I traveled to Austin, TX in October. 
  5. Visit a friend in another state. Traveled to NC in October to visit one of my best friends.
  6. Get up early to watch the sunrise. (with coffee of course)
  7. Cage diving with sharks.
  8. Take a cooking class. (Because I’d rather use someone else’s oven than mine.)
  9. Unplug completely for a full 24 hours. (#unplug) – did this during my Half Dome trip. I had ZERO service. 
  10. Throw a pot. 
  11. Travel with a friend. 
  12. Read at least 30 new books.
  13. Send handwritten letters to friends. 
  14. Buy a stranger lunch.
  15. Leave a 100% tip. (I love this and can’t believe I haven’t ever done it before.)
  16. Take more pictures with my camera.
  17. Learn how to sail a boat.
  18. Run a Marathon. (Already signed up to run the San Francisco Marathon in July!)
  19. Escape from Alcatraz. (Welp)
  20. Go apple picking! (Every year I plan on doing this and it never happens!)
  21. Surprise someone by mailing them a care package.
  22. Try a new workout class. (DYING to try barre and hot yoga)
  23. Enter the Pen Pal world. 
  24. Climb Half Dome. (Trip planned for July! )
  25. Make my blog public!
Have you ever made a “bucket list”? What’s on yours?
