25 things to do before I’m 25

In 2,5 year I’m turning 25. Not something I want to think about, but it’s a milestone when you reach that age. So I think it’s great to make a bucketlist till my 25th birthday. Just to give yourself some goals in life and try to make them happen. Not everything has to do with traveling, but some does. I think it’s a great bucketlist for those 2,5 years and I hope I can complete it!

1. Visit USA
Because this country is on top on my wishlist.

2. Get my university degree
Yes please, and fast please.

3. Buy an iPhone
This is kind of a weird one, but I really want an iPhone. I think they’re too expensive. I’m watching them for years and never bought one. So I think it’s time to finally get one.

4. Stop eating so much sugar
I eat (and drink) a lot of sugar and I want to stop doing that.

5. Get at least one beauty treatment
A skin treatment or a massage. That doesn’t matter, just relax and enjoy.

6. Visit Thailand
Because Thailand is a country I really want to visit.


7. Run at least 5 km
What? You’ve 2,5 years and you only want to run 5 km. Yes, that’s right. I hate running (or sports in general, except swimming), but I want to have a better condition. So I’m not forcing myself to run a marathon, because I’m sure I’m not going to do that. But this goal is more achievable, so I think it’s a great goal for me.

8. Spend New Year’s Eve in a different place
So not at home, just somewhere else.

9. See the Lord of the Rings trilogy
Because my boyfriend wants me to watch it. And I liked the Hobbit, so why does it take me so long?

10. Lose weight
Not going to say how much, but I really want to lose some.

11. Visit Antwerp
It’s really close to the Netherlands, but I’ve never been there. And I think that needs to change!

12. Stop caring about what other people say


13. Go at least two times to Amsterdam
I live in the Netherlands, but I never go to Amsterdam. So that needs to change.

14. Buy a house together with my boyfriend
We live together, but the house where we live in now we rent. So in 2,5 years we want to buy a house.

15. Go backpacking
Just go, because you love it.

16. Starting something I like to do
I don’t mind if that means working, studying for my master degree or whatever. I want to do something I like, or better said; I love.

17. Learn to cook
It’s not that I can’t cook, but I don’t make time for it. So most of the times it’s something simple to make. I want to change that!

18. Sleep under the stars
With my boyfriend and a blanket if needed.


19. Visit at least one a concert
I don’t often go to a concert or something like that, because it quite expensive. But once in a while I really like it, so that’s why I want to go to at least one concert.

20. Visit a zoo with my boyfriend
Because we never did, but really want to do it.

21. Visit London
Because it’s still on my wishlist.

22. Buy a pair of prescription sunglasses
Because last year I finally bought a pair, but lost them in the sea in Bali. So it’s time to get a new pair!

23. Go swimming with my boyfriend several times
We only swim on vacations together, but we decided to swim more often. Just because we like it and it’s a great sport to do!

24. Be happy
Be happy with the life I have and if I’m not I have the power to change it.

25. Still blogging on this site
I love to blog, so why stop between now and 2,5 year?

Let’s make it happen!

    Veel succes met deze goals! Ik klikte deze post aan omdat ik net zelf 25 ben geworden en ik moet zeggen dat ik de meeste dingen van jouw lijst kan afstrepen! Het zal jou dus ook wel lukken ;) Misschien kan ik nog niet echt koken maar is het meer ‘eten klaarmaken’ haha :) En een zonnebril met aangepaste glazen is echt een goede investering geweest, zeker bij het autorijden of voor op vakantie! Wat jammer dat je de jouwe bent verloren in de zee!
    Oh en ipv LOTR zet ik dan de Star Wars films op mijn lijstje, ook omdat mijn vriend wil dat ik die zie haha!

      Wat leuk dat je mijn goals al gehaald zo goed als gehaald hebt! Het zijn ook niet de moeilijkste, maar hé dat hoeft ook helemaal niet! Haha, dat eten klaarmaken ken ik. Ik wil alleen minder ‘pakjes eten’ eten, zoals al die wereldgerechten enzo. Er zit zoveel zout en alles in, zo slecht! Het was ook niet slim van mij om met de zonnebril in zee te gaan, maar de zee was zo rustig en ineens sloeg het om. Tja, ook dat had ik kunnen weten, maar goed gebeurd is gebeurd. En het is maar een zonnebril!
