20 Things I Haven't Done Even Though I'm 20

Posted -
  1. Owned a credit card

PC: Delta (https://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/skymiles/earn-miles/earn-miles-with-partners/credit-card-partners/personal-credit-cards.html)

I mean yeah I want the SkyMiles but I also don’t have a steady job…

 

  1. Gone Skydiving

PC: Sky Dive Perris (http://skydiveperris.com/tandem-skydiving-los-angeles/)

But like my only plans to skydive are for when I make it to 104, so I still have 84 years.

 

  1. Traveled to South America

PC: Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/blakehoon/south-america-geo/?lp=true)

I didn’t take four years of Spanish in high school for nothing. I mean I hate reptiles; but how could I pass up the natural wonders of the Galapagos Islands?!

 

  1. Gotten a “wild” piercing

PC: Stylist (http://www.stylist.co.uk/beauty/beautiful-ear-piercing-inspiration-earring-tragus-ear-pierced-ideas-beauty-blog-how-to-earring)

Has the time for this past already?… maybe...

 

  1. Gone to Disneyworld

PC: Popsugar (https://www.popsugar.com/smart-living/Disney-World-Tips-37275397)

But like Disneyland is the OG amiright or amiright?

 

  1. Filed taxes

PC: Georgia Watch (http://www.georgiawatch.org/taxmap/)

Can I always just be listed as a dependent?

 

  1. Bought a lottery ticket

PC: istockphoto (http://www.istockphoto.com/photos/lottery-ticket?excludenudity=true&sort=mostpopular&mediatype=photography&phrase=lottery%20ticket)

Eighteen came and went and it still hasn’t happened

 

  1. Learned a Winter sport

PC: Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXkbOlrTCC8)

Unless you count tubing...

 

  1. Written a check from my bank account

PC: Discount Checks (http://discountcheckstore.com/test/special-interest-checks.asp?prod=496853131&subid=DCS-GG-Categories-Betty)

Does a venmo caption count?

 

  1. Learned a recipe by heart

PC: Cook Smarts (https://www.cooksmarts.com/cooking-guides/)

But I know the directions for Ghiradelli brownie mix by heart… Preheat the oven to 325...

 

  1. Made a LinkedIn account

PC:Social Talent (https://www.socialtalent.com/blog/recruitment/best-linkedin-account)

That is literally the first step in giving into #adulting.

 

  1. Fixed a flat tire… or learned how to fix a flat tire

PC: WKRG (http://wkrg.com/2017/02/24/debris-on-i-10-causing-flat-tires/)

S/O to my parents for the 36 year AAA membership

 

  1. Learned how to drive a stick shift

PC: NY Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/autos/americans-driving-stick-shift-article-1.1072784)

I mean soon enough cars will just drive themselves, and I mean at least I got my driver’s license...

 

  1. TP-ed a house

PC: Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/513551163737647920/?lp=true)

The problem with growing up in a small town is that all the moms know each other and it’s inevitable that Jimmy’s mom will call you by 9 am the next morning asking you to come clean her yard.  

 

  1. Dyed my hair

PC: Reference (https://www.reference.com/beauty-fashion/can-use-aluminum-foil-color-hair-ea5aabd1b238f70f)

Just trying to take advantage of my natural hair color while I have it.

 

  1. Had a New Year’s kiss

PC: Odyessy Online (https://www.theodysseyonline.com/why-you-dont-need-to-kiss-someone-at-midnight)

The real question is have I ever been up til midnight on New Year’s Eve?

 

  1. Gone to a music festival

PC: Greg Noire (https://www.everfest.com/magazine/all-the-best-photos-from-coachella-2017-weekend-one)

Drive to the desert, fight people for a slice of watermelon, be covered in glitter for the rest of the year? Spotify is sounding pretty nice right about now.

 

  1. Been hospitalized or broken a bone

PC: Best Online MD (http://www.bestonlinemd.com/broken-arm/)

Knock on wood...

 

  1. Kept a journal or diary

PC: Bike Radar (http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/article/cycling-training-diary-12750/)

On the bright side, I can’t look back at any embarrassing huge life problems from middle school.

 

  1. Gotten my s**t together

PC: Marion Smith Designs (http://marionsmithdesigns.blogspot.com/2015/06/araceli-from-creative-planner-team.html)

I’ll be lucky if I can do this by the time I’m 85
