Near the beginning of February I start looking forward to my birthday (April 4th is only, like, 2 months away). I start to reflect and think about where I’ve been and what I want to do (okay so it’s just like every other day but stay with me for a second). This year I’m turning 25, TWENTY-FIVE, so obviously I’ve read all of the 25 things to do before you turn 25 lists. Although, I think they vary for each person, I must admit that most of the things I would want to do, I haven’t yet done.
15. Forget who you are, what your priorities are, and how a person should be.
25. Quit that job that’s making you miserable,
end the relationship that makes you act like a lunatic, lose the friend whose sole purpose in life is making you feel like you’re perpetually on the verge of vomiting. You’re young, you’re resilient, there are other jobs and relationships and friends if you’re patient and open.
ALL of these lists seem to have one very important rule in common – STOP BEING A BABY AND GROW THE EFF UP. As I dream of moving out and think of all of the responsibilities and loneliness that might come from that, I’m realizing that I really need to grow up. I need to take the initiative to make my life what I want it to be. And that is number 1 on my List of things to do in life, ASAP.
