50 before 50

On my 25th birthday, I remember talking to my friends about bucket lists-if they had them, and if so, what is on theirs?

One person mentioned hers, but what stood out for me of hers was the name “50 before 50 bucket list” I asked her why the time frame and the number, and she told me if you think about it, you should try to do much of them when you’re younger, and 50 just sounded good.

I was inspired by this, and then made this bucket list!
