"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
~ Mark Twain
In a few short weeks I will be twenty-two. I have to say I'm pretty stoked to pass the twenty-one mark. This past year has been very good to me, but I am more than ready to say goodbye. Even though it means a year older...it also means a year closer to whatever and wherever I wish to be. (I don't know if that makes any sense, but it my mind it works.)
Growing up I had this dream of how college and post-college would play out. Traveling abroad for a year, immediately finding my dream job (I lived in a fantasy land obviously) and living out on my own. For those of you that know me, it hasn't quite happened as I had planned. Life happened and I took a few detours, but I do not regret a single one.
As the end of March gets closer and closer I have decided to create a "to do" list (I love lists - almost more than I love crossing things off my to do list) via heirloom of all the things I would like to accomplish before the big three-zero. The hope is to make the list as attainable, yet life altering as I can.
I hope you enjoy and please, feel free to chime in with fun ideas. (insert corny yet inspirational saying) The sky is the limit!
So to begin....
to do list.
Put a stamp (or a few) in my non-existent passport. (the first step will have to be actually getting a passport, but thats easy peasy) I don't care where...although if I could be picky I would love to go somewhere in Africa or South America.
Anyone want to be my travel buddy?
