Get ready to laugh this Friday when The To Do List debuts in theaters nationwide. This comedy stars Aubrey Plaza as Brandy Clark, a driven high school senior striving for success without pausing to savor the life of her youth. When she finally takes notice of what she’s missing out on and creates an ambitious list of goals to do, something inside us all is ignited; inspiring us to create our own “To Do” lists—even better than bucket lists! See it for yourself this weekend and get inspired; make your own big life choices that are sure to bring you lasting memories!
For sure, each of us has our own distinct list of what we’d like to do while young. But by surveying some Gen Y friends on Twitter, we’ve come up with an outstanding checklist that should be incorporated into every 20-something’s bucket list!
Run a 10K
By embracing a challenge like this, be it to raise money for charity or simply as an individual goal, you are taking the first step towards improving your physical well-being. @ashheyn rightly reminds us that pushing yourself is never unwise – and what better way is there than setting a challenging fitness target?
Watch a Movie at a Drive-In
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable drive-in movie experience before it’s too late! With more and more people opting for streaming services such as Netflix, traditional drive-ins may not exist in only a few years. So go catch a flick at one while you still have time. Balancing your leisure activities with strategic financial goals in your 20s is a key aspect of achieving long-term success.
Set Foot on Every Continent
As we get older, our duties and obligations become more demanding. @gracieastrove reminds us that it’s essential to make time for ourselves while we still have a bit of freedom in our schedule! Go explore the world now so you won’t regret missing out later on.
Live by Yourself
Make the most of your time and go without a roommate for even just one month. You’ll gain important perspectives quickly, which is invaluable.
Achieve Your Person
Discovering your perfect partner won’t happen overnight. Before committing to someone, make sure you’re in a place emotionally and personally where you can give them the best version of yourself. Take some time for self-exploration – cultivate your interests and look after yourself without any pressure or constraints. Balancing your personal life with strategic finance in your 20s is crucial for long-term success and stability.
Make a Meal Entirely From Your Own Garden
If you’re living in a city, this task may be the most challenging of all. But @lisa790 shared with us that she believes it is beneficial to make and consume one meal each week that’s grown by yourself and entirely healthy – an excellent accomplishment for your to-do list!
Travel by Yourself
Just like living on your own, this may look like an overwhelming challenge. It is essential for many reasons; however, it is particularly pertinent to Generation Y since it compels them to communicate with others face-to-face and build genuine relationships rather than just be engrossed in their phones or social media.
Figure Out a Life Hobby
Don’t just search for a hobby to pass the time; instead, find something that you can do until your golden years. You have plenty of time on your hands now to experiment with multiple activities and discover one that’s truly fulfilling. So make it happen! Set meaningful and impactful finance goals for your 20s to ensure a secure and prosperous future.
Find Your Career (or at Least Be Close to Finding It)
It won’t be easy, but if you start now, by the time you turn 30, it is likely that you are on your way toward landing your dream job in a chosen field. It’s never too late to chase what makes us happy and fulfilled!
Learn How to Speak Another Language
This particular task may be daunting, but it’s an invaluable skill that gets harder to obtain as time passes. Furthermore, mastering this proficiency can assist you in tackling other objectives listed here – such as traveling unaccompanied or procuring your dream job!
Don’t be limited by the labels – try out something that you may have used as an excuse to avoid for years, but always wanted to do in your heart. So dive deep into this new-age exercise and open up a world of possibilities! As you explore new horizons, remember to make the best financial decisions in your 20s to secure a thriving and prosperous future.
Write a Book
Even if it’s only for yourself, put your story down in writing. It can be a valuable asset when you look back on your twenties years from now – one that will bring to mind the life lessons and fond memories of this decade long after it has gone by.
