June 2018 Update on 25 Things to Do Before I Turn 25

Stephanie Kamp Blog: June 2018 Update on 25 Things to Do Before I Turn 25

Hey guys,

I turn 25 on October 29, 2018! So that means I only have 5 months until I turn 25 to complete the 25 things I have left on my list. I'm gonna be honest, looking back I did not make a very realistic list so I am definitely not going to be able to complete a majority of the items. However, whatever I don't complete I do plan on adding them to a new list called "30 Things To Do Before I Turn 30" because I feel like it might be more realistic the older I get! But we'll talk about that more after I turn 25! Let's take it one age at a time!

Okay so here's the list again to remind you of everything that I am supposed to complete!

1) Travel to Italy

So I will not be traveling to Italy before I turn 25. I just don't have the time or the money. Life is hectic and I really don't know what kind of job I will have here shortly and I don't know how much PTO or time off I will be allowed to take. And the reason I say that leads us to the next item on the list.

2) Travel to Germany

I will also not be traveling to Germany before I turn 25 however, my family does have a trip planned for the December after I turn 25 so at least I will be 25 when we go. We are going for about two weeks and this is why I don't think I'll be able to go to both Italy and Germany in the same year. Most companies only allow you to take two weeks off of PTO. 

I am so excited for this trip because we will actually be going to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland all in the same trip! It should be amazing and I can't wait until December!

3) Travel to Greece

I will also not be traveling Greece! I have no idea what I was thinking and why I put so many countries on my list when I came up with this! I guess I was naive or I just have really big dreams or probably both!

4) Own a house

5) Live somewhere new out of Florida (even if only for a short amount of time)

So this might be something I might do later on in life but definitely not before I turn 25! I definitely don't plan on going anywhere any time soon and you'll find out why later on in the post!

6) Get started on my Masters

I have not started my masters but I have started looking into this! I am actually thinking of going back to school to become a librarian and then once I am working as a librarian I will go back to school part time and get my MBA! This has been a dream of mine but with an MBA you aren't really guaranteed a career at the end of it. Whereas if you get a specialized degree then you are more likely to end up with a job that can lead to a career! I honestly really enjoy school so I still have a goal of getting my doctorate! 

7) Buy a new car

8) Completely decorate a place with new furniture and have it paid off

So our place is pretty much completely furnished! So I'm actually going to cross this off our list! It's not full paid for but we only owe like a few hundred dollars for some items so it will definitely be paid off by the time I turn 25!

9) Improve my French or learn the basics of a new language

I have not done this nor will I be working on this anytime soon! I have like zero time to work on something like this even though I really wish I did!

10) Watch all of the Star Wars Movies

I have watched more of them so I will hopefully have watched all of them by the time I turn 25!

11) Make some blogging friends and maybe experience new things because of blogging

I have not done this and I probably won't be doing this since I did take almost a year off from blogging! But maybe someday!

12) Help my sister publish her book and then maybe read it (haha)

We are definitely still working on this one!

13) Go on a road trip

14) Go to a professional hockey game

I have not done this one yet but hopefully I will before I turn 25!

15) Go to a professional bull riding event

I did this! I went to a bull riding event with my mom and sister last summer! It was actually a lot of fun and I would definitely go again! I would totally recommend it if you've ever thought about going to one!

16) Go a missions trip

So I don't have any missions trips planned for this year, there is one that might church does every year and if they do it again this year then I am hoping to maybe be able to go on it but they haven't mentioned it yet so I will keep you guys posted or it will be moved to my 30's list!

17) Volunteer at a Summer camp

It is summer so I could still potentially do this but I have a feeling I won't be doing this one!

18) Buy a Chanel bag

I'm kind of still hoping to cross this one off my list but it depends on how much money I end up making at whatever new job I get and how much I'll be able to save! So we'll see!

19) Do something that scares me

I did this! I went to Halloween Horror Nights for my birthday last year! This is something I have wanted to do for years and I finally conquered my fear and went! I took a trip with some friends and my sister and we all powered through the haunted houses and scare zones and it was a blast! It is definitely something I want to do again but I definitely can only do it with like a group of 5 or more!

20) Travel to Colorado with my sister

We definitely also won't be going on this trip! Maybe sometime before I'm 30! That would definitely be amazing!

21) Go zip lining

I have not gone zip lining and I don't really know if I will be going zip lining but we'll see!

22) Go tubing/white water rafting

I also have not had the opportunity to go white water rafting or tubing but hopefully it's something I'll be able to do soon because we did get a jet ski so hopefully we can buy a tube and going tubing!

23) Help build a house for Habitat for Humanity

I still really want to do this but I'm not entirely sure how to do this or if will have the time in the next 5 months! I have quite a few trips planned to various places and once I find a full time job I still plan on keeping my part time job at DSW just so I can keep the discount and make some extra cash! So that won't really leave me with a lot of extra time but we'll see! This will definitely be added to my things do before I'm 30!

24) Pay it forward

Once I get a new job and start making more money this is something I plan on doing on a regular basis! I love helping people out and treating them very well!

25) Either be dating, engaged or married

OMG guys I finally have a boyfriend! Which you already found out in my last blog post! He is amazing and I absolutely love him! We plan on staying together and getting married someday! We've already talked about a lot of stuff and what we want out of life! I'm actually dating my best friends brother and I actually knew him for about a year before we started dating and I honestly never would have guessed that we would have dated but I guess that's how it happens for some people! I definitely wouldn't change thing about it and we've almost been together for a year now!

If I didn't write anything under a crossed out one it's because I've already crossed it off my list and wrote a review about it in my last update here! Also you can read the original post here!

Alright guys, that's it for now! This will probably be my last update on this topic until after I turn 25! I hope you enjoyed this post and I'm a little sad that I was only able to cross a couple more things off my list but my favorite definitely has to be the last one, obviously! 

Thanks for stopping by!
XO, Steph


  1. You should take a short weekend trip to Tennessee so you can go zip lining and white water rafting before you turn 25. It's soo fun!!
