If I asked you to sum up your 20s in one word – what word would you pick?
For me, the 20s = Navigation. Transitions would be another word.
There’s just so many things going on – trying to find yourself, your own identity, how that matches up to the rest of the world. Peer pressure, societal influences… Romance, relationships, figuring out what you want in a partner, breakups… Death, weddings… Career, what’s an ideal career. Finances – savings, should you start investing… Travels.
SO. MANY. THINGS. TO. FIGURE. OUT.
It’s probably also the best time in your life – health-wise and looks-wise. All the late nights, parties and copious amounts of alcohol and junk food probably won’t have any effect on your waistline or your looks – yet!
I turned 29 recently. It will be the last year of my 20s before I move on to the next decade and a whole new phase of life.
I get pretty nostalgic about things like that. And as I look back on the 10 years gone by, there were all sorts of memories – happy ones but lots of regrets as well.
So I’ve compiled a bucket list to celebrate the last year of my 20s! This list is filled with 29 things that I think all 20 somethings should experience at least once – before they hit 30.
