the 22 list

For my birthday this year, my friends and I have decided to go out and eat sushi. This is the plan because I have never eaten real sushi before and most my friends really like it. I hope you can make it to the party. Afterward, we're going to Guru's to sing karaoke.

I actually wasn't very excited to turn 22 because really it just means you're officially an adult. After 21, there isn't anything legally I can't do because of my age, (that I'm aware of) except maybe rent a car. But that's not a big deal really.

22 was promising to just make me feel old and lame.

Well this sushi thing got me thinking, "what could I do to make 22 seem better?" And I came up with this idea:do 22 things I have never done before. Make my 23rd (technically) year of life full of adventures.

I made a list. It's epic. Some things are still under construction and such, and I actually haven't picked a 22nd thing because I don't want to be too hasty. Here's my list:

  1. Go kayaking
  2. LICK a Tootsie Pop to the center (possibly count the licks)
  3. Build a telescope
  4. Design and Make my own article of clothing
  5. Tour the East Coast (from Florida to Maine)*
  6. Sit in on a session of Congress
  7. Go to Harry Potter World/ Watch the entire (both parts) 7th Harry Potter Movie
  8. Hike Mount Timpanogos (not sure of spelling)
  9. Walk on a Glacier
  10. Do 100 hours of service
  11. Bike some significant distance (like a century that isn't mountain biking)
  12. Visit all the temples in Utah
  13. Read the Holy Bible cover to cover
  14. Build an Igloo
  15. Eat sushi
  16. Take a picture EVERYDAY
  17. Write in my Journal EVERYDAY
  18. Leave the country
  19. Take a backpacking trip
  20. Catch a fish
  21. Surf
  22. ?
What do you think I should add as my 22nd thing? Or maybe some help with 11... Awesome!

One thing you can't do when you are 22 is be the President of the United States, or even a Senator. But your list looks great! Have a fun year!
