25 Before 25

In six months and six days, I turn 25 years old. A quarter of one century. I get the last of the "age" rights that begin with 15 and your learner's permit and slithers through 16 and your licence, 18 and porn/cigarettes/voting (voting is the only perk of 18 I use lol), 21 and alcohol, and end with 25 and "rent a car without any extra fees". Which is, like, the oldest/lamest thing to be excited about anyway.

BUT in honor of my upcoming birthday, I thought I would take a look at my life and see if I'm anywhere close to where I thought I would be. I'm pretty close. I have a degree, a dog, a great boyfriend, a nice car, enough money in the bank to where if I got laid off, I could pay all my bills for 3 months without having to worry, a 401k, no student loans. So now, I want to take a look at the little things that I want to do (eventually) in my life and see if I can knock some of them off in the name of my 25th.

So without further adieu, here is my 25 before 25 list! I'll be updating this list whenever I get to knock something off. Wish me luck!
