21 Before 21: The List

This will be an everlaaaaaasting love.  Oh wait, no.  This will be the post where I finally say my list of 21 before 21.  Twenty-one things I want to do before I turn twenty-one.  I've sort of kidnapped this idea from Sarah Von of Yes and Yes, so I always feel like I should give credit whenever I talk about it.  Go check out her blog, it's kind of one of the reasons I started a real blog.

Anywho.  21 Before 21 is my way of doing New Years Resolutions.  Some are more resolute-y than others, but the general idea is to get a bunch of stuff done throughout the year.  Since I have a September birthday it's also a great way of setting goals for the school year.  Well then, without further ado:
  1. Read the whole bible
  2. Go to a clothing swap
  3. Vote
  4. Create a Cookbook of Rachel
  5. Start and complete a knitting project
  6. Do a lead climb
  7. Go snowboarding with friends
  8. Go scuba diving
  9. Bake Bread
  10. Have a real sit-down dinner party
  11. Plant a mini herb garden
  12. Learn how to apply make-up
  13. 100 push-up challenge
  14. Improve my typing speed (I'm at around 60 wpm, and I think it's be really cool to get up to 80 or so)
  15. Dye my hair with Kool-Aid
  16. Go paint balling
  17. Get my fortune told
  18. Go for a month without looking in the mirror
  19. Skip class and go out to breakfast
  20. Go camping
  21. * <edit> Buy Christmas presents with money saved </edit>
The last one is an asterisk because I actually still don't know what it's going to be.  No clue, which is a little irritating to me.  Everything I think of is too simple or completely impossible.  Maybe it should be a reading one, but I wouldn't know what book (to be honest, the "grown-up" section of the library scares me a bit).**

So, there's the list.  I haven't really done anything yet other than start a bible reading plan that will get me through the whole thing (awesome).  I have some recipes collected, some people in mind for a dinner party, and a connection to go diving, but other than that... Let's do this.

<edited to add>I'm adding "Buy Christmas presents for immediate family with money saved" to the list.  In past years I've always gone to get Christmas presents for people with my parents and they they would pay for the gifts.  This year I'm going to buy gifts for immediate family and some friends with my own money.  I've already started looking, and it's turning out to be a little harder than I thought.  But no matter, I'm pretty determined about this one.</edit>

  1. it was great to see you last night! maybe your last "21 things" should be something you've already done, so you can cross it off right away :) how's that for self-esteem?
