25 Before 25


So I turn 25 in just under 6 months. Now that I’m free from law school and bar prep and have a salaried income, I’m ready to make the most of every day. I was inspired by Mackenzie Horan’s 101 in 1001 to make a list of goals for designated period of time, but in 2.75 years my life will likely change too much to want to keep goals I set now. So I shortened the timeline to 6 months before my milestone birthday and accordingly lessened the number of goals.

There is so much I want to do with my life right now… buy a house…. go to Thailand… line up my next job… but for this list I needed to whittle down my goals to things that I could realistically accomplish in the next 6 months. For example, as much as I’d love to see a new country, visiting a new city is much more realistic. I made a page above so that I can keep track of my progress in one spot. So without further ado, here’s my list!
