40 before 20

40 before 20

This year I have been trying out a lot of new things, such as pushing myself to embrace life, instead of letting it pass me by. I have always been mellow and and passive, so it really hit me a few days before my birthday that I was turning 19 years old, and this was the time that what ever I put my hand to do, is what will shape my future. I want to be happy with my life.  Not necessarily have something to show for it, but when I look back I want to be able to say, "that was amazing , and I regret nothing."

I have never really been good with goals and keeping up any of them, but I thought I would try it out again. I made a list of Forty things to do before I  turned twenty. I wanted my list to be things that scared me, but challenge me, yet are still realistic. The inspiration came from Kara of I Just Might Explode. So here goes nothing!
