25 By 25

A few years ago I came across the idea of doing a prescribed number of tasks in the year between your birthdays.  For example 19 things before your 19th birthday.  I tried a few times, but it was always too much on top of school, and tutoring, and extracurriculars.  So I didn’t have a list between 20 and 21.  I’ve also seen a lot of 101 in 1001 posts, so I decided to combine the concepts.  Starting early this summer I made a list of 25 things I would do before my 25th birthday.  I have just under four years to tackle these.  Some I’m working on already, some I’m planning, and some I won’t be able to do for years.  But that’s okay.  I have time.
