25 in 25

In November I am turning the big 2-5! I am not freaked out, or having a quarter life crisis (yet), but in an attempt to start reflecting on where I've been and where I am going I decided to come up with 25 things I want to do before I am 25. This first step in doing this is reflecting on my life now, which I am very happy with.

Are you happy? from Typcut

I do not agree with the poster above when it says you should just keep doing what you are doing if you are happy. In my life I would always prefer to mix things up, try new things, and live new experiences with those I love. So in the vein of trying new things I have come up with my list of 25 things. Some of them are big and involve more effort and others are simpler and could be checked off in an afternoon.

Update: November 2011 came and went (along with my 25th birthday) and I did not get a chance to complete all the experiences below. Steven and I did do a number of these things, but I never wrote about them. (Shame on me, time to catch up!) Now, in July of 2012 (where did the first half of the year go), I am committed to completing these experiences (and writing about ones that happened already)! I am excited to see the things we do in the next few months!
