Top 5 Things to do once in your life

Top 5 Things to do once in your life
29 Mar


Everyone and I mean literally everyone always has this bucket list of things they wish to do in the life they’ve been blessed with, right?

It can range from going to they’re favorite place, eating a food nobody they know has ever tried before, or simply meeting the person/a celebrity they’ve come to adore so much.

So, here below, in my opinion, are the 5 things all teenagers (or adults, as long as these things interest them!) should do in their lifetime!


  1. Visit all 7 continents.

I know, expensive, but not if you start saving up from today. Grab your passports and backpacks and get going. Try to visit the Seven Wonders of the World in all these continents, the trip will be worth it.


  1. Read at least 10 famous books by well-known authors.

Trust me, nothing beats getting in bed, wrapped in a comforter like a burrito, with a cup of coffee and a good book in your hands. Nothing can go wrong with this (other than becoming very emotionally attached to the characters and entering a temporary black hole of thoughts when the book ends).


  1. Conquer a fear.

You’ve probably heard this and read this a lot of times before, but dude, this is necessary. Life is boring unless you try to do something you never thought you would while screaming your head off. It’s fun, believe me.


  1. Disconnect for a week.

This is not difficult, and it’s definitely not going to cause your death, or loneliness. How am I so sure of that, you ask? Well, being in high school, I still don’t have a cell phone, but I do have an iPod, which I’m only granted permission to on weekends. I survive the whole week without these gadgets and the internet, so can you?  Otherwise, doing this will make you more aware of what’s actually happening around you in your life.


  1. Stay awake for 24 hours.

Do it with a friend you can bear the presence of for so long, or alone if you’re not that into being around people, whatever floats your boat, mate. Try doing some activities that you’ve always wanted to do but never got the time for. But, just please don’t do this on a school/college/work night (or day).


I hope you guys enjoy reading this list and one day, muster up the strength to actually do some or all of these 5 things.
