25 Things I want to do before I’m a Quarter-of-a-Century Years Old

It hit me today that 25 is quickly approaching and I still have a lot I had hoped to do and brave by then. Sure, I’ve already done quite a bit before hitting a quarter century, but there are endlessly more things I’d like to try out before I hit that age which allows me to rent a car without paying additional fees.

So, as all list-lovers do, I compiled a list. There are a couple of rules, of course. All things must be feasible and all things must be trackable. What’s the point otherwise?

So here it is, my list of 25 things I want to do before I turn 25.

  1. Check out Mount Rushmore
  2. Go stargazing in Badlands National Park
  3. Find an exercise that I enjoy (ha)
  4. Cut out soda for a full year (like, seriously, it’s so bad for me *sips Pepsi*)
  5. Buy my first gun
  6. Apply for my CHL so I can conceal carry said gun
  7. Attend an Elevation Worship or JesusCulture concert
  8. Get dolled up and check out the Scioto Downs Race Track
  9. Host a “Book Reading” party
  10. Win NaNoWriMo (I have exactly one more shot at this before I turn 25)
  11. Try out Karaoke
  12. Eat at an upscale restaurant that requires formal dress and costs $100+ per person.
  13. Go to a drive-in movie theater (how have I still never done this??)
  14. Weekend getaway to Portland, OR to check out Powell’s Bookstore
  15. Dine out all by my lonesome
  16. Run a 5k
  17. Try zip-lining on for size (did I mention I’m terrified of heights? As in absolutely petrified?)
  18. Feed a giraffe at the zoo (or elsewhere, but I find it unlikely I’ll stumble across one in the Badlands…)
  19. Get a facial (I’m 23 and don’t even know what this is..)
  20. Play a game of paintball
  21. Watch the Sunrise and Sunset of the same day
  22. Make a piece of pottery
  23. Start a fire with steel and flint
  24. Attend a murder mystery dinner
  25. Attend a Native America Pow Wow

Now to get to it… 🙂

    1. Thanks! And oh my gosh! I’m so jealous you’ve been to Powell’s City of Books!! I hope to get there someday SOON! My sister and I are tackling Mount Rushmore and the Badlands over Labor Day weekend, and I have tentative plans to go to a drive-in theater with a friend soon. My biggest hang up is choosing to start. Once I get it on the calendar, it happens. 🙂

  1. I can help you with several things on your list. 😊 We have some similar goals… that 5k thing for instance. Run or walk at jog pace? 🤔 and there’s the American Pow Wow… I know people. Lol

    1. Haha! I’d love your assistance. If the 5k happens anytime soon, it would be a very slow jog.. but I’d like to get to the point where it’s an actual run. I’ve been quasi-training, but my legs KILL. I’m wondering at the possibility of shin splints.. Hopefully my legs will continue to get stronger and the pain will stop, because I feel great after the workout and would love to do it more regularly!

      The American Pow Wow.. hook me up, sister! 😀
