25 before 25 (in 5 months)

25 before 25 bucket list

It’s 13th February 2018, 20.08pm and what have I got to lose? Well, nothing. So what better way to fill the start to my year than with a list of what 2017 Romi would probably have rolled her eyes at? I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m fully for bucket lists and reaching for the stars but let’s just say I’ve never been the adventurous type. But you know what? Why the hell not? I literally have zero plans this year and I’m currently spending my weekends what’s pretty much staring at a blank wall (ok, maybe not that bad). But I’ve finally got a job I love and touch wood my anxiety has been under control for a while now – so much so that even a horrendous turn of events didn’t knock it. Bloody proud of myself!

So here’s the thing, I turn 25 on 26th July, so that leaves me precisely 163 days to fulfil this. Not a hella lot of time, but my list does reflect this slightly. Some challenges like 1, 2, 20 are already pre-booked. I’ve got one of my best friend’s wedding in May and I’ve signed up for a colour run with work, as well as joined my work’s book club. The last two of these I actually booked knowing that I wanted to challenge myself this year too, so that’s worked out pretty perfect.

Anyway, without further ado here’s my list of 25 things I hope to complete by the time I turn 25 this summer. As always if you have any suggestions then please feel free to leave a comment. Wish me luck!

  1. Finish a book
  2. Sign up to something crazy/different
  3. Book a holiday or travel solo
  4. Get into shape
  5. Treat myself to something special
  6. Try a pole fitness class
  7. Drive somewhere new
  8. Catch up with an old friend
  9. Attempt to teach my cat a trick (this can be done)
  10. Practice guitar again
  11. Watch an old movie I’ve never seen before
  12. Watch an Audrey Hepburn movie
  13. Host a BBQ
  14. Treat myself to flowers
  15. Get involved in a pub quiz
  16. Learn to check Fia’s tyres and engine bits
  17. Enjoy a picnic – perhaps in the woods
  18. Buy a piece of art (Etsy)
  19. Learn first aid
  20. Have an unforgettable night
  21. Midnight drive or drive thru
  22. Visit a new beach
  23. Get a credit card
  24. Bake a rainbow cake
  25. Get a tattoo (Ekk!)

Note; number 25 is subject to change depending on my courage levels

    Hey – absolutely love this post. I turn 30 this year (time has just escaped me) and a lot of what you have put have been personal aims for a lot longer than I can remember. I think it’s a great idea to post this list. Good luck 🙏🏻
