28 Things I Want To Do Before Turning 29

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Last week I turned 28years old…. Wow 28! It amazes me how time has flown by. I can vividly remember being 18 years old beginning my freshman year of college! That was 10years ago! Geez…… Now I’m almost 30…. It all came so quickly, but you know what?!?! I welcome it with open arms!

What does 28 years old mean to me? I’m not so focused on the fact that I’m so close to officially not being 20-something anymore, but that I want to make sure I am using my time on earth wisely.  Each year of my life is a special gift from God and I really want to make sure I’m taking advantage of each day. I want to do things that make me happy and keep me excited about life. I must make sure that I am actually doing the little things I tell myself I want do but never actually get around to doing it. So, I made a list of 28 things I want to do before my birthday rolls back around next year. Deadline: November 8th 2015. The day I will turn 29.

28 Things I Want To Do This Year:

  1. Volunteer More- Basically, I just want to do more things that benefit others.
  2. Visit 10 different coffee shops around Baltimore and write about my experience. (Suggestions please?!?!)

  6. Climb a mountain/hiking somewhere on the East Coast.
