A List Of Adventurous Things You Must Try Before You Turn 30
“I am turning 30 this year, my life is finished”, ever experienced that? We aren’t saying you’ll turn an oldie once you cross that mark; we totally support the ‘age is just a number’ philosophy! But that freedom to do things recklessly and then get away with it would somehow be lost. We see some faces droop… but hello, you can do all the crazy things now, like really now when you have your body to support you. At the very least you’ll have stories to tell as a grandparent! So here’s the bucket list you need to live by before the clock ticks 30 on you!
NUMBER 10. LIVE TOTALLY ALONE
What is the life of an average 20 something? Going out with friends, partying with them, group study or at least pretend to do that! Your life revolves around your friends and if we take them away, then what? Will you be left sticking to your phone? You have the chance to see for yourself, just walk out of your current life and move to a different city, where you don’t know a single soul. Alright, let’s drop the bomb now, go away for at least 3 months for this experience to set in!
NUMBER 9. GO ON A ROAD TRIP
Like this just had to be on the list, you aren’t kissing your 20’s a goodbye without a road trip! So pull your friends in, get a car and a stack of silly t-shirts; and you are good to go. Just keep off the highway to take in the real scenery and whistle as you drive. From eating at cheap street joints to sleeping in the car, do it all in this trip. You never know you are gonna have another one like this or not, so just lose your mind and hit the road!
NUMBER 8. TRY YOUR DREAM JOB
We all have a dream job that we wanted to pursue but couldn’t, most probably because it wasn’t that well paying and we needed bread and butter on the table. Just imagine you are a millionaire and now go for it. That’s unrealistic and stupid, right? Don’t quit your existing job; just make time for this dream of yours, maybe once a week. But do it and delve into true bliss, if that doesn’t happen, dude, it wasn’t your dream after all!
NUMBER 7. FACE YOUR FEARS
Feared of heights? Go for cliff jumping, or bungee jumping or paragliding or whatever sport. Scared of proposing that cute girl from the sales department, who is obviously out of your league? Shout out your feelings for her! In short, anything that scares you, do it at least once without thinking about the consequences. You still have the time to overcome your fears; it’ll make you stronger in life. You don’t have anything to lose, at least not much!
NUMBER 6. LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE
Maybe that’s not easy but are we even talking about easy things over here? So, check out that french class near you and head straight. What, you don’t have the time to spare for a language class with all the jobs and all? We aren’t letting it go; you did study some Spanish in school, right? Then just brush up on it. Head to a cultural event full of foreigners and strike up a conversation with them. Or better still, jet off to Spain and as they say, in Spain do as the Spaniards do!
NUMBER 5. MAKE A SONG
No matter how bad you sing or how horrible that guitar sounds in your hands, make music. Collect your friends and go rock and roll, music has a feel to it that no other thing will ever have. Even if you murder the song completely with your personal ‘style’ and skills, go for it! Aim for an album but if you think your group is a total disaster, at least make one video. You’ll have something to talk about when you lay in bed with nothing to do, 100 years from now!
NUMBER 4. GO ON A BLIND DATE
A total flop date has to be on this list, because hello, you gotta be armed with such stories for your grandkids! No matter how horrible it goes, you’ll at least have something to laugh about in later years when you are settled with a nice family. If you like that thought, maybe you should even try dating someone who isn’t your type. You’ll probably learn adjustment, or just have more experience to share with kids!
NUMBER 3. WRITE A LETTER TO YOUR FUTURE SELF
Does that sound totally crazy? Even better, we want crazy! Pick up a pen and paper and start writing, alert- no Gmail! Put it away and find it years later. You will gain so much insight into yourself that you had no idea about; you may even surprise your future self with your deep words! It will be like meeting a long lost friend, do it to see how much you change over the years. That’ll be hella fun!
NUMBER 2. SPEND A NIGHT UNDER STARS
How about camping in the woods on a star-filled night? If it sounds romantic to you, drag bae along by all means. If not, what are buddies for? They’ll obviously jump into this crazy plan of yours and make it all the more memorable. So drive into the woods or maybe hills and set up the tents and barbeques to have a fun night. But don’t get too engrossed, you may burn your tent with the fire. That won’t be too bad, imagine lying on the ground with stars smiling above you!
NUMBER 1. QUIT YOUR JOB IN A UNIQUE WAY
You know you aren’t putting up with that menial job for long and will eventually chuck it. Why not do it uniquely? Give them a reason to remember you for like years to come, maybe that’s too much, just a few weeks would also do! How about shouting ‘enough is enough’ in the middle of a conference and leave? In case you change your mind after that, be ready to be fired in a more novel way. That’ll be fun too!
