These are 50 things I want to do. There’s not really a deadline for most of them. Just…experiences I want to have, and have not yet had. Some of them are significant, some are not. I tried to keep down the goal-ish things and stick to things that I can say, “yeah, that happened,” in a definite way. But I want to do them all. 

Thanks to Jordyn for helping with the list!

  1. I’m seventeen and I’ve never been kissed, so guess what’s on this list? Yeah.
  2. I want to go to a high school party, you know, like the stereotypical ones with the drinking and the random making out and all. Not that I want to participate, but it’s just an experience. 
  3. I want to skip school for no reason other than to skip.
  4. I want to go on a road trip without a predetermined destination.
  5. I want to go on a spur-of-the-moment trip to a strange city.

  8. I want to stay out all night. 
  9. I want to learn to drive and then use my newfound skill to drive across America.
  10. I want to spend time in Europe with an unlimited rail pass, no plans, and nothing but a backpack and a willingness to try new things and meet new people.

  13. I want to spend the night in a bus station.

  27. I want to crash a wedding.
  28. I want to graffitti “You Are Beautiful” somewhere. 
  29. I want to drive/ride in a convertible/with all the windows down along California State Route 1, all up and down the coast.
  30. I want to go to the biggest bookstore in the world (and according to Wikipedia, several stores claim that title depending on how you define it, so I guess I’ll have to visit them all!).
  31. I want to ice skate on an actual pond or lake.
  32. I want to see three feet of snow. 
  33. I want to go to Carnival in Rio.

  39. I want to live in a foreign country. 
  40. I want to learn to read palms and/or tarot cards.
  41. I want to see the horizon on all sides of me (I live in the mountains), on a clear day and on a clear night. 
  42. I want to spend all day in a movie theater, watching movie after movie but only paying once. 
  43. I want to go to a desert. No, make that two–a Southwestern Cactus-y desert and an Aladdin-esque rolling-sand-dunes type desert. 
  44. I want to be an extra in a movie. 
  45. I want to sing karaoke in front of strangers.
