20 Things I Want To Do In My 20s

Turning 20 was one of the most liberating experiences. I feel like my life has just started and this era will give me more freedom to explore my identity and my passions more so than my teenage years did. So here is my bucket list for things I wish to accomplish in my 20s

  1. Travel to at least 50 countries
  2. Get my law degree and become a barrister
  3. continue to grow spiritually
  4. Find time for charity work no matter how busy life gets
  5. Have my voice heard on a mater I care about (gender equality, racism etc)
  6. Find love
  7. Make every person I come across feel valued
  8. Not abandon this blog
  9. Find a “real” job
  10. Finish reading the top 100 books of all time
  11. Own a house or a car
  12. Do something erratic that I would never do like skydive
  13. Visit the seven wonders of the world
  14. Learn more about Indian history and culture to grow my identity
  15. Help build a school or an orphanage
  16. Get a Masters or a PhD in something
  17. Stop buying so many clothes
  18. Have my own personal collection of recipes that I can pass down to my children
  19. Learn to be more patient and less judgmental
  20. Do a cross country road trip

Okay this list was harder than I thought but what are some of your bucket list items?


2016 Resolutions


I hope 2016 will be a happy year for all filled with lots of fun

As is custom I’ve set myself some blogging and life resolutions which I decided would be interesting to share.

Blogging Resolutions 

1. Post at least twice a week: I’m approaching my last year of schooling which is going to get hectic I’m sure and in that I don’t want to lose my passion for blogging or leave you guys hanging, so I’m going to make a real effort to put content out there.

2. Participate:  I’m really starting to appreciate this book-loving community we have and I’ve enjoyed participating in bookish events across the internet and in real-life surrounded by like minded people. So let’s continue that in 2016

3. Collaborate:  This was one of my resolutions for last year which I didn’t exactly complete. But guys, I really do want to have people contribute content to this blog or do a guest post on another blog, we’re gonna make it happen!

Personal Resolutions 

1. Live in the moment: I want to really stop worrying about the past or the future and just enjoy the moment right now, especially because it’s my last year of high school and I want to remember as much as I can.

2. Learn to love and value myself: This is a really personal one because often times I am my harshest critic 

3. Find ways to grow and improve without being too harsh on yourself

4. Have faith that everything will work out the way it’s supposed to 

Those are my goals for the year!

What are some of your resolutions?
