Joie de vivre

My 24th birthday is soon aproaching and on the cusp of my quarter life crisis I have chosen to live a year with complete and utter reckless abandon.


Adjective: (of a person or their actions) Utterly unconcerned about the consequences of some actions; without caution; careless.


Noun: To yeild (oneself) without restraint or moderation; give (oneself) over to natural impulses; usually without self-control. Freedom from inhibitions, restraint, concern, or worry.

We only live once and are young for far too short a time, I believe in making the most of absolutely every moment. My list is compiled of 25 things that really excite me and by November 23rd, 2012 I will have crossed every item off my list, whilst documenting on this blog all the shenanigans that it will have entailed. If you too have the joie de vivre, I would so love for you to join me on my adventures over the next 365 days.
