My bucket list of 20 things to do before I turn 20.

In 15 months, I will no longer be a teenager. I will be 20 years old, and the idea of that is honestly terrifying. That’s a little more than a year left! I’m growing up quick, and there’s a lot I want to do. So, in light of this, I decided to create a sort of bucket list, 20 things I want to do before I turn 20. 


1. Get a tattoo

I’ve always wanted to get one, so why not now?


2. Go to Europe 

It’s always been a dream, whether studying abroad or a family trip, I will go!


3. Go skydiving

The best way to get over my fear of heights.


4. Go out of the country by myself

I’ve always traveled with my parents and being an adult is about independence!


5. Get a job

I never had time to work in high school and I have to start somewhere!


6. Go to a music festival

If you don’t secretly want to go to Coachella then you’re lying to yourself.

7. Go on a camping trip with friends

Is there anything better than appreciating nature with your best friends?


8. Road-trip across the country to national parks

Again, is there anything better than nature and appreciating its beauty?


9. Get my own pet

It’s probably going to be a fish, but it teaches responsibility!


10. Volunteer more

I love spreading positivity so what better way than to give back to the community!


11. Find presets to make my Instagram more aesthetic

This has been an ongoing struggle but I’ll get to Indy Blue’s level someday. 


12. Eat healthier 

Eating healthy in college is a struggle but I need to make it a priority!

13. Practice yoga

Yoga is something I’ve always wanted to get into but never had the courage!


14. Develop deeper relationships

Whether it’s friends or family, I need to allow myself to be vulnerable and accept the love and support offered to me as well as supporting them. 


15. Grow spiritually

Spirituality is a never-ending journey and you can never stop growing.


16. Make my passion a priority

Putting myself and what I love first will ensure the future I want for myself in the world!


17. Vote

I have a voice for my country and I intend to be heard!


18. Write letters

What happened to old-fashioned communication? To me, it’s more personal that a text.

19. Go horseback riding

I used to ride a lot growing up, and I miss it so much. 


20. Go cliff jumping

Again, getting over my fear of heights, and just finding that feeling of absolute freedom!
