My pre-21 bucket list

Okay so I’m slightly panicked now as 2 weeks today is my 21st birthday and I just don’t feel old enough to be 21. Don’t get me wrong, 21 isn’t old. But it feels it to me. It’s the oldest I’ve ever been! Obviously, Katie, it’s a celebration of surviving your 21st year on this planet…

With only 2 weeks to go, I thought I’d have a sit down and decide what things I want to have achieved by my 21st birthday. Now, remembering I only have 2 weeks to do this, I set to work on creating this list:

  • Read a classic. Any classic whatsoever. 
  • Get rid of all unnecessary/unwanted clothes.
  • Finish Rachel’s birthday present.
  • Light the candles in my bedroom at least once.
  • Apply for at least 20 jobs in Glasgow.
  • Catch up with Pretty Little Liars.
  • Sort my makeup etc and have a clear out.

What do you think, can I achieve all this?

    This pre 21 bucket list is definitely achievable! Check out Virginia Woolf’s ‘The Waves’ if you want to read a classic that’s probably structured unlike any other book you’ve read! But yeah, happy EARLY birthday! 🙂

    Oooh thanks, I’ll have a look for it and see if I can find it! And thank you for the early birthday wishes!!
    I’m going to head over to your blog now, welcome to the community!! If you’re free at 9pm (GMT) on Tuesday, you should definitely join in with the #GRLPOWR chat on Twitter! It’s a great way to talk to lots of people and gain a load of advice for blogging and everything that goes with it, never mind just being a bit of fun! cxx

    Great list! I would say to pick a scented candle you really like to light in your room. 🙂

    Haha need to get started on the things on the list! Oh I didn’t think of that! And I can officially drink in America! Now just to get there…. Thank you!!! xxx

    Ooh! Great suggestion! What would you pick as your favourite scented candle? My flat’s contract states we can’t light candles but says nothing about owning them so… xxx
