I originally saw this idea over at Madeline Bea and thought that it was something I would definitely be into. I’m a list kind of person. I like to make them, I like to scratch things off. And if I don’t write it down, I’ll either forget or won’t do it. If I have it on paper somewhere haunting me, then I tend to get it done much, much faster. Just so I can mark it off and see it has been done. I tried that whole “1001 Things in 101 Days” project and got really bored with it, really fast. So instead, I thought I would break my nice little list making obsession down into 25 Lists.
25 Lists of 25 things before I’m 25 years old. That gives me a little less than 2 years to get them done. I’m going to start with a nice little bucket list…you know, things I want to accomplish before I turn 25. This is just the first of many lists to come, but this is the biggie. The one that is really going to count. The one that will hold record of all of the things that I need to accomplish for myself before I turn 25.

Alrighty. So there you have it. My “25 Things to do Before I’m 25.” I already have a few more lists in the works to post sometime this week, but I won’t bombard you with all of them now. Feel free to join in with your own lists. I’d love for you to play along with me. If you create you own, leave me a comment and the link. I’m always looking for people to hold me to my projects [like the Shred? 🙂 ]
