22 Things To Do Before Dying, Written By A 22 Year Old

Life is short, it's important to have goals and tasks you want to accomplish; you only have one life, what will you do with it?

A part of being human is wanting to accomplish tasks or goals. It can be anything from spending an entire day on the couch watching TV to spending an entire day hiking through a beautiful area to spending time with loved ones. As a 22 year old, I've comprised a list of goals/tasks that I want to accomplish before I die. These may be goals other 22 year old has or ones that anyone at any age has, but for right now, these are mine at this age. And who knows, maybe next year they will change!

  1. Fall deeply in love
  2. But first, and most importantly, find the deep love of God and understand it while understanding His deep love for me
  3. Visit all seven continents - I may not be a scientist but I will find a way to Antarctica!
  4. Have some beautiful kids
  5. Travel with my family - a lot
  6. Have not just a job, but a career that I love and enjoy going to daily
  7. Continue the great relationships with my siblings and my children have close with their cousins.
  8. Do something each year that terrifies me
  9. Go skydiving or bungee jumping - so maybe that can be #8 that year, right?
  10. Go a year without getting hurt - ha!
  11. Take a girls trip with my closest gal pals
  12. Eat something that scares me
  13. Eat something I've always wanted to try
  14. Live frugally for at least a year
  15. Live to see my grandkids
  16. Make a home
  17. Road trip across the US
  18. Backpack (or just travel) across Europe
  19. Do something crazy
  20. Go to at least five of the US' national parks (besides Palo Duro Canyon, which I love dearly.)
  21. Love like there's no tomorrow
  22. Live life fully and unconditionally for God.

These are in no particular order, partially because that would be difficult to rank them and partially because when in life does anything happen in the order you expected it to? If life did that, it'd be boring! You'd live expecting the expected instead of expecting the unexpected and where is the fun in that? I hope this list inspires some of you and I hope it encourages you and I also hope that if you have suggestions of fun, cool places, goals or tasks you want to accomplish that you will tell me so I can add them to my list!

"One day, you will wake up and there won't be anymore time to do the things you've always wanted. Do it now." Paulo Coelho

I Talked To Nikki Pebbles About PCOS-Friendly Workouts, And Low-Impact Is The Key

Hormone health impacts everything, including the workouts that are best for you.


Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) deal with a lot of uncertainty in their life. Between hormonal ups and downs, unpredictable weight gain, painful cyst ruptures, and infertility worries, their bodies are often under a lot of stress! A common symptom of PCOS is having a hard time losing weight — many women find themselves frustrated (or in pain) from traditional workout plans.

I talked to Nikki Pebbles, a certified personal trainer and group fitness coach, to talk about the kind of workouts that are best for women who are dealing with PCOS.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
