Old/Boring/30 List


Pretty much everyone you meet has a Bucket list. However, mine is a bit different. When I was 13, I made a list of things that I wanted to do before I was old, boring, or 30. Whichever one came first.

Of course, when you’re 13, 30 is a lifetime away. However, now that I’m 20, I find it growing alarmingly close. As a young teenager, I thought your life was over at 30, but now I’m seeing that life becomes much sweeter, and so much more of an adventure. When I turn twenty-nine, I will revise my list a little. It shall become the old, boring, or 40 list. And, every decade thereafter, I shall keep bumping the age back.

Because after all, you’re only as old as you allow yourself to be. And I refuse to ever be boring.

So, here’s the ever-changing list. Hopefully things will continue to be added and crossed off quite rapidly.
