I debated with myself a lot before finally writing this post...
Yesterday marked my twenty-fifth birthday, and you may or may not know how that goes. The day itself was fantastic - complete with giant golden number balloons, new succulents to bring life to our apartment, and so many more surprises and smiles! Some days I think that I'm just the same now as I was when I was, say, eighteen, but when I think about it, I realize how much I've really changed over the years. Okay, so I can still wear clothes I wore in high school, and I never did get those extra few inches of height, but so much has happened from then to now.
Last week, as I do every year, I went through a list of things I wanted to do by the time I turned 25. I didn't get everything knocked off the list (taking that pottery class has been on that list way too long), but I was surprised at how much I actually did accomplish. On top of that, I've done things I never even dreamed I would do or wanted to do. In honour of me officially reaching a quarter of a century (and despite that it is more interesting for me than you), I decided to share a few of these items. A "reverse bucket list," if you will:
Went to a Wedding - As a Cardboard Cutout
I'm not even kidding.
Graduated from University - Twice
And now I don't miss school!
Decided for Myself to Follow Jesus
Independent of anyone else's opinion.
Learned a Second Language
Which I've decided I need to use more - especially since I have the opportunity to...
Ran a whack of Races
The half marathon was my favourite.
Lived in Three Different Countries
And visited plenty more!
Got Engaged & Married Within a Year
Not to be mistaken for met, got engaged and were married within a year - we were together for a few years already
So there you have a few highlights from the last 8 years (and my succulents that I had to share!). Since I have 5 more till 30, perhaps I should sit down and create a 30 before 30 list? Nah.
What are some fun items on your bucket list?
