MY LIFE: 18 THINGS I WANT TO DO WHILST I AM 18

I was born on December 17th, so by the time this is out, I will officially be 18 years of age! I’m really not a big fan of big birthday parties, or  flashy gifts so since this is my first year as an adult, I wanted to celebrate my milestone in a way that I would actually  enjoy.

New Year’s is just around the corner, which means I have two new chapters opening all at once so I decided I would create an ’18th Year Bucket List’ and my New Year’s Resolution will be to complete it.  Not all of the things listed are exclusive for 18 year olds; a lot of this stuff is just stuff that I’ve always wanted to do but just never got round to and some of it is stuff I never had a reason to do, so I am making this the reason!

This time next year, (God willing) I will do another post that will let you know how my year went! If not, I will most likely update this post every time a change is made and then repost it next year…
