21 Before 21

I'm no stranger to list-making. In fact, I just asked my roommate to help me brainstorm a last couple of items for this post and she flat-out refused. I'm hoping it was because she was too engrossed in Pitch Perfect to be distracted and not because she's fed up with the lists on the blog lately. Either way, I've finally finished my 21 Before 21, and am posting it now so that I won't be bored this year!

1. Go on a trip with friends. 
2. Go to an art museum.
3. Give up all social media for 1 week. 
4. Bake a cake for someone's birthday. 
5. Visit another country. 
6. See a musical. 
7. Write 5 "just-because" notes. 
8. Learn how to do my own makeup. 
9. Ride on a train. 
10. Run a mile without stopping. 
11. Have a picnic. 
12. Send flowers to someone. 
13. Visit a place I've never been. 
14. Journal every day of the summer.
15. Run a 5k.
16. Try 5 restaurants I've never been to (1. Cristiano's, Houma, LA )
17. Run a half marathon. 
18. Try something new. 
19. Have brunch in New Orleans. 
20. Stop waiting until the last minute to study. 
21. Get a firmer grip on the future (aka "What do I want to be when I grow up?")

As always, this list is more of a guide than a checklist because we all know what happened with the 20 Before 20 and the subsequent birthday-depression. This time, there will be no failure, guaranteed.


  1. This a great list! I need to make my 21 before 21 soon!

    1. Thanks Michaela! Hopefully mine will work as inspiration :)

  2. Visit another country is a great goal, I always try to visit at least once place I've never been to each year.

    1. Thanks Alex! I may already be planning a summer trip (eep!), so I'm sure I'll be blogging about it soon!
