21 Before 21

Everyone has made, or has at least heard of a bucket list, myself included.  I’ve made multiple, actually.  How often do I check something off?  Not often.  When do I actively think about these goals?  Rarely.  So, thanks to an idea I found on Sofia’s Journal called 30 before 30, which is a bucket list of 30 things she wishes to do before she turns 30.  I find this idea brilliant because bucket lists have no time limit.  I am easily affected by deadlines and work exceptionally well under pressure (true of any serious procrastinator)… but if I don’t have a deadline, chances are I will become lackadaisical and put things on the back burner.  My usual bucket lists have no time limit, so I rarely “check anything off” said list.  This list, on the other hand, almost forces me to get these things done, and the sooner, the better!  Since I’m not close to 30, I decided to do a 21 before 21 instead.  That way, once that age rolls around, I can vary my bucket list and add new things!  Perfect!
