If you think about it, birthdays are pretty weird. You’re essentially celebrating that another year of your life has evaporated and that you’re one year closer to your expiration date.
(That’s a Forever 21 jacket by the way and it’s amazing, right?)
Note: these are not goals; there’s like totally a separate list for that. Coming soon to a theatre near you. (IE: I’ll post my New Year Goals on New Year’s Day)
Well, it’s my birthday tomorrow and, due to the ability humans have to apply meaning and significance to utterly meaningless objects and events, this means that I will be an adult.
Indeed, I am turning . . .
Now, as this is the first year of my grown up life, I want it to be a good one. I want to it to be a graceful ascent into adulthood; fun, productive, meaningful.
So I’ve created a Bucketlist of things I want to do in my 18th year on this earth. (And getting shitfaced drunk is included. It’s all about grace.)
- Get a tattoo
- Cross something off the bucket list
- See Panic! perform live
- Do a volunteer holiday
- Go blonde
- Learn Italian
- Start yoga
- Hot yoga
- Suspension yoga
- Start kickboxing
- Go on a friend holiday
- Learn to pole-dance
- Start belly-dance
- Aerial silk
- Get braids
- Watch the Book Of Mormon
- Watch Hamilton
- Road. Trip.
- Go on a spontaneous weekend away
- See Guns ‘N’ Roses
- Chinese New Year in Chinatown.
- Save £5,000
- Get incredibly drunk
- Go on a cabin holiday, preferably alone
- Road trip!
These are just a few things that I’d love to do during the next year of my life!
I hope everyone had an absolutely fantastic Christmas; I personally like to switch off a little bit during the holiday season, so I haven’t been very active – but I’m back! Now, I would love to expand this list, so if you have any suggestions, things you did when you were 18 or want to do when you turn (or even things you just want to watch me do, you sick fuckers) then let me know in the comments below!
All the love,
