Twenties Bucket List


Life is weird and I keep opening my eyes and like a year has passed and I don't know where it is all going. There seems to be something about being in your twenties that gives you a defaulted pressure to feel like you need to fit in everything and anything into this decade. I am becoming vastly aware that these years of my life will not spin out forever and I really want to make the most of it while I still have the freedom and lack of responsibility that comes with being a twenty-something. I've been thinking lately about things I want to do and experience at this part of my life, and I thought I'd record it here, I'll add to it and update as I go...:
