5 Things I Want To Do in My 20's...

Tomorrow I turn 20 which is quite a scary thought considering it feels like yesterday, I was turning 10 (yep everyone remembers the excitement of reaching double figures!) I'm not quite sure how I feel about turning 20, to be honest, I would have been quite happy remaining 18 but wouldn't a lot of people?!
However, I am quite excited to see what the next 10 years of my life bring; a lot of people say your twenties are the 'defining decade'. In today's post, I'm going to share with you 5 things I'd like to do in my twenties...

Graduate and get job I love (but don't settle) | start my second year at university in twweeks time meaning I'm only two years from graduating (one if I don't do a placement). Once I've finished my degree, it's too early to say whether I plan on doing a masters but regardless, I hope to find my dream job in my twenties and keep working my way up the ladder.

Get over my fear of flying and travel | I've never been on an aeroplane (yep, that's right, never!) Therefore, I can't really say it's the flying I'm scared of, more fear of the unknown I suppose. In my twenties, this is definitely a fear I want to overcome because I feel like I'm missing out on so much beauty in the world. When I do eventually get myself onto a plane, I'd love to visit Italy, New York, and Australia. 

Take care of my body | Everyone comes in different shapes and sizes (it would be a very boring world if we all looked the same!) So at 19 years and 364 days old, I think it's finally time for me to accept I'm never going to be super skinny. Just over 3 months ago, I rejoined my local gym and I've discovered a new love for fitness, I try to go at least 3-4 time a week and spinning has got to be my new favourite thing to do - I actually look forward to going! In my twenties, rather than constantly focusing on my body hangups, I want to learn to accept my body (flaws an all) and take care of it rather than striving for something that jut isn't achievable - with hips like mine, I'm never going to be a size 8 and I'm actually OK with that! 

Get my own home/flat | Right now, I like living at home but one thing I definitely want to do in my twenties is get a place of my own (I already dream about decor and pin about it on my Pinterest) I particularly envy people with beautiful rooms turned into dressing rooms. That's the dream right there!

Just live life and enjoy it   | I just want to spend the next 10 years of my life, loving it and living it. I don't want to be fretting about things like marriage and babies, because lets face it these things happen when they happen - you can't really say 'in 5 year time I want to be married with a baby' especially if you don't even have a partner.

So there you have 5 things I'd like to focus on throughout my twenties

What would like to achieve in your twenties or what are some of the things you have already achieved?
