24 things: a wish list

I’ve seen a lot of people on blogs take the time to put together a list of things that YOU should do before you turn a certain age or a just a generic bucket list of places to visit or foods to try.
In lieu of this and my recent 24th birthday, I came up with a list of 24 things I want to do before I turn 25, a wish list if you will. 25 is such a big birthday and I think making these tiny accomplishments will make it even more special. Some of these things are things I’ve already done and want to do again, things I’ve always wanted to do, things I’ve been too scared to do, and things that I just pulled out of my plain ole’ bucket list. So here we are, my wish list:
Run a half marathon (I ran the Dallas Half Marathon on December 13th, 2015)
Visit New York City  Toronto (Sometimes you have to improvise)
Learn photoshop
Watch a Movie Under the Stars (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off)
Swim with a sea creature (Swam with a Manatee and a Sea Lion in Cozumel)
Write a short story
Visit a foreign country (Visited Mexico)
Shoot a gun  #secondamdendment  Something tells me that I’ll never want to do this – so it’s been removed. 
Get my portrait made
Go to the state fair  I did this just before turning 24. It was my very first fair, see here.
Play paintball
Take a dance class – as a couple
Go on a cruise (#mexicandecemeber)
See Casa Loma
Take a fitness class
Revamp my blog – invest the time  Finally got my .com back and my fresh look.
Pay off all my credit card bills Does paying off two and a car loan count?
Try Mediterranean food (we went to Baboush in Dallas)
Get a tattoo  (I got a temporary one :)) 
Make 3 new Year’s Resolutions – Keep them!  (30 days without meat, complete daily journal, excercise more)
Ride in a hot air balloon
Complete an entire daily journal      I did it and then I stopped Journaling. Missed the point on that one.
Get a massage I did this for my birthday and it was so wonderful!! So relaxing!
