20 things to do in your twenties

The checklist for adulthood often consists of graduating high school, getting a job and moving out. In the rush to become grown up, we sometimes forget to enjoy young adulthood. Here is a bucket list for twentysomethings to ease the transition from adolescence to adulthood and have some fun along the way.

  1. Travel to a foreign country by yourself or without your parents. Visit the seven wonders of the world. Try backpacking for a month.

    • For world traveling dining etiquette, check out this link.
  2. Write a novella or book.
  3. Live alone. You learn a lot about yourself.
    • For financial tips on how to move out of your parents’ house, check out this link.
  4. Kiss a stranger (if you are single).
  5. Learn another language, even if it is only a few phrases.

    • To find the best cut for your face shape, check out this slideshow.
    • Check out this website for trying on different hairstyles before getting your hair cut.
  7. Spend a day away from technology. All those items on your to-do list may be a lot easier to accomplish with a clear mind away from distractions.

  12. Vote, not just for the presidential election. There are big issues every election season.

    • Check out the Aggie’s lineup here.
  15. Apply for a job you are not sure you are qualified for. Take a chance. You are probably ready.
