Bucket List: 20 Things I Must Do In My Last Year As A 20-Something

I’m turning 29 next month, and I feel like I’m standing on the edge of an abyss, peering down into the darkness at the endless expanse of the rest of my life, and it’s old and gray and wrinkly. There’s a lot of knitting going on, too. And it kind of smells like sour cream. Sorry for the depressing visual, but I’ve been having a bit of a mental crisis the past year regarding the oncoming turn of the decade.

They may have been crazy and wrought with ups and downs, but at the end of the day, I really, really want to stay in my 20s. I mean, what’s so great about 30? (Please, tell me, because I need something to look forward to).

Anyway, to calm the growing anxiety that is my last year of my 20’s, I’ve decided to create a bucket list of things to do and experience before the big 3-0.

  1. Take an aerial yoga class

    I’ll look exactly like this.
  2. Hang out with John Stamos

    Any reason to slap his photo on a blog post is a good reason.
  3. Participate in a 5k (The color run is unicornified)unicorn-2007257_960_720

  4. Test-drive a Tesla

    Or… let the Tesla test-drive me?
  5. Make another attempt at going vegetarian

    I will also look exactly like this. 
  6. Create a quality, professional-level cosplay for a major con

    Shameless nod to last year’s win 🙂 
  7. Drive on the ET Highway and search for UFOsunknown

  8. Learn a magic trick

    Of course, I’ll end up here by day one 🙂 
  9. Have a photo shoot wearing something ridiculous

    Except, not as an Easter rabbit. Never as an Easter rabbit.
  10. Wear something unabashedly hipster to a hipster coffee house.  

    You have to admit that hipster coffee is pretty good
  11. Two words: Ikea Day

  12. Sip cocktails on a rooftop bar

    So many pretty lights 🙂
  13. Participate in a peaceful protest

    Specifically, for science. 
  14. See something ancient 

    All Giza Pyramids
    I’m not saying aliens… but aliens. 
  15. Start growing coffee plants

    They’re so pretty 🙂 
  16. Try kickboxing

    Apparently Santa also does it?
  17. Go on a scavenger hunt

    Gotta find that pie…
  18. Find a secret speakeasycrystal_palace_orchestra_playing_in_brisbane_about_1929_5903283440

  19. Meditate for an entire day chakra-1063278_960_720

  20. Take a linguistics course

    I shall decrypt the most ancient of texts!!


So now that it’s set in digital stone, I guess I should probably post updates whenever I check off one of my items. The pressure is on!

If you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns about my bucket list, feel free to comment below 🙂

  1. If you want to see something ancient, come to CT and visit us! 🙂 As for turning 30, speaking from the far side of the 60s, we wouldn’t mind seeing the 30s again. Have fun checking off your bucket list items. By the way, aerial yoga looks like fun! And so does the ET highway. Love, Linda and Ralph
