It’s official — as of April 21, I turn 21. My focus word for the next 365 days is intentional. Whether it’s reading another chapter rather than aimlessly scrolling on Instagram or doing something new, I want to be more intentional of how I spend my time. So, I created a list of 22 things to accomplish before I turn 22. Check back often as I document my adventures!

  1. Attempt to ski // snowboard.
  2. Attend a minor league baseball game.
  3. Buy a scratch-off. I bought two, and unfortunately, I didn’t win anything on either. But I can totally see how people are addicted — it’s so fun.
  4. Climb a mountain.
  5. Cook ten new recipes.
  6. Dine at 20 restaurants I’ve never been to.
  7. Get into the best shape of my life.
