Friday Faves: 25 Things to Do Before You Turn 25

College moves fast. One second you’re a freshman wandering around the campus with a lanyard and the next second you’re crossing the stage and collecting a diploma. You vaguely remember meeting your best friend when she held your hair back after your first frat party and you kinda remember that all-nighter you pulled to get 3 term papers done in one night. But the rest is a blur of theme parties, walks of shame, and begging your older sister for her fake ID.

Before you know it, you’re out in the real world, working a real job alongside real people, wondering what happened to no-class Friday and $3 pitchers. And trust me, it ain’t fun.

It gets pretty easy to get caught up in it all and forget to be young and crazy. That’s why, with only a little way’s to go until I hit the big 2-5, I’ve put together the ultimate list of everything we, as fun-loving and fearless women, need to accomplish before we turn 25.

      Does it count if I've already seen the guy friend naked but now we can be just friends?

    2. Garnet – Columbia University says:

      Love this. And YES to #10. I think everyone should have to work in a restaurant or in retail at least once.

    3. Barbara says:

      #1 "take some Plan B in the morning just in case"? REALLY? Even if this is supposed to be a less serious article, does that mean we can give terrible, irresponsible advice? Last time I checked, Plan B was an EMERGENCY contraceptive method. There is no excuse to use it as a primary method. It has serious side effects.

      Am I the only one bothered by this?

      1. guest says:

        Yes. Yes you are.

      2. Chris says:

        right, that's why you have 18 thumbs down and she has 56 thumbs up.

      3. anonymous says:

        i don't think that they were suggesting to have one night stands on a regular basis followed by plan b all the time…also it says "just in case" which to me means that they want us to be careful with our birth control so that we don't have a random persons baby. not too sure why you are so offended by a contraceptive method, but calm down.

      4. Lucy says:

        Plan B is merely a large dosage of birth control.
        And, like every other medication, some individuals may experience side effects.
        But it's not as if you're causing irreparable harm to your body after one time.

        YES, it's an EMERGENCY contraceptive… meaning it could be used to prevent future emergencies.
        Perhaps those that have a pink plus sign on them.

      5. Kevin says:

        No, you're not. 'And remember to use a condom!' would be good advice. 'Take some Plan B!' assumes a level of intentional irresponsibility that is not a good idea at any age.

      6. eat says:

        #1 is horrible advice. Have people heard of Herpes and HPV (which can spread even with a condom)?

      7. Lia says:

        I didn't interpret it as "don't bother using condoms or being on the pill, just take Plan B afterwards!" I saw it as "use a condom, but since you REALLY don't want to get pregnant from a one night stand, take Plan B afterwards as an added precaution." But then, I'm not sure why anyone would even think of not using a condom when having sex with someone they don't know really well, unless maybe they were a victim of abstinence only sex ed (some of which teach kids that condoms don't really work…yeah, thanks for that spike in unwanted pregnancies and STDs, guys).

        Whether taking Plan B simply as a precaution (rather than as a response to, say, a condom breaking or slipping off) is a good idea is another matter. But it's not likely to hurt you, so it's not irresponsible to suggest it. It doesn't have serious side effects…it's just progestin, like in birth control pills. It causes spotting and nausea, typically. (I mean, I suppose it theoretically COULD have serious side effects, but it's improbable.)

    4. thoughtsontheatre says:

      This was fantastic. Great list.

    5. guest says:

      #1 bad idea. first time, every time
      Honestly, these never end well.

    6. Tiff says:

      Hell yeahhhhh. Dude I gotta do these. They're really do-able.

    7. Maura - Rider University says:

      I want to live in another country! And hopefully have my career path decided before 25 hahha but now its not looking great!

    8. ThatKrazy says:

      17/25 down. 2.5 years left.

    9. I turn 25 in a week and was worried how I'd get these done. Then, I read the article and realized that I don't want to do 75% of them. I'd much rather this list have something like "Have a job you're proud of" than "work in food" and "have sex with someone you love" rather than "have a one night stand". We should set the bar a little higher guys.

      1. emordnilapalindrome says:

        You're a little bit on your high horse there, Carolynasaurus.

      2. Lia says:

        The "work in food" thing wasn't about being proud of yourself, it was about understanding that food service (and retail) are tedious jobs that involve dealing with obnoxious customers on a regular basis. The idea, and it's one I've heard often, is that if you've worked in these types of jobs, you will know better than to BE an obnoxious customer. Of course, people should really know better than to do that simply by using common sense (oh, hey, did you know waitresses are people?), but many don't. A quick browse of Not Always Right will clearly demonstrate that.

    10. Amanda says:

      These are silly. Sure glad I got married young so I don't have to worry about any of these stupid ideas. I have more respect for myself than to have a one night stand.

    11. Madeline says:

      Most of these are things you should do through out your life, not just before finishing your 'college period'.

    12. that girl says:

      I never did weed, but hung out with people who did in high school. College freshie now, and just have no interest oncesoever on doing it. Just don't wanna, ya know? Nor do I wanna really drink. Cuz, tried beer once with family, it's kinda gross. Wine is very nice, but I get a headache from a couple sips. Assuming I'm a lightweight.. And, does it really matter if one has sex? I mean, I think foreplay can be intense if done right enough as it is. Why throw it around like that?
      Not all college kids are lame if they don't do that kind of stuff. Just different interests and values. So..
      NO. :p

      1. katz says:

        weeds not that great

    13. Amanda says:

      One night stands always seem like a good idea at the time, but how many mornings do you wake up feeling fulfilled and without regrets? None so far for me…

    14. Sam says:

      If you have the capacity to separate the physical and emotional elements of sex, why shouldn't you enjoy a one night stand? To the married before 25 girl–take off your *white wig, get a sense of humor and a general taste for adventure. *This references the wigs traditionally used courtrooms and communicates stop being so judgmental…in case you didn't get it.

    15. Liz says:

      Some Suggestions for an Alternative List
      1) Make someone smile.
      2) Put your heart out on the line at least once, whether that be with a friend, crush, etc.
      3) Make yourself proud.
      4) Get in shape (once you hit thirty, it becomes increasingly difficult to get those abs you've always wanted).
      5) Dream big, and then try to make those dreams come true.
      6) Do something so cool that you'll have to tell your kids about it someday.
      7) Do something so stupid that you'll have to tell your kids about it someday.

      Just some ideas. Granted, they're not as creative as "have a one-night stand" or "do drugs," but some of them might be a wee bit more meaningful.

      1. naoma says:

        The get in shape is good advice. I have never been overweight. But, wherever I travel I see more OBESE women than shapely ones. Where are the good looking women I remember from years ago? Pride in
        yourself? I was in Boston recently (half way across the country) and an obese woman sat on my leg
        in the subway. Seat was big enough for 2 but she was 3 people wide. Hurt like the blazes. I extricated myself and stood for the long ride. Obese is gross — big hanging boobs, fat rear end and a stomach that looks 20 months pregnant. DO THEY HAVE MIRRORS AT HOME?

    16. ITV player says:

      I have to say 60% of them are done… next I really have to find a gorgeous guy for number 1!

    17. Robin says:

      Anh… At the ripe old age of 36, I'd like to say "Life is not a super market". I used to make lists like this, but really, I've found life is so much more unpredictable. I did a lot of them – foreign living (good but tough). Drugs are more dangerous than you might think. Holy fuck LSD is a bad idea if you have any tendency to mental health difficulties, and lots of us deal with depression anxiety etc. Seriously. Cocaine too. Stay the hell away. Sex with a stranger, even a beautiful one,…just pointless, really. I know that's not a sexy thing to say. Don't get stuck in retail and restaurant work. Seriously. Oh, bugger it, your life is yours. Follow your gut. Be good to yourself. That's what I'm working on. Harder than it sounds.

      1. Michelle says:

        Lol!! But you know all of this is true because you experienced it yourself! If you had never experienced it, you might still be wondering.

        I enjoyed this list!! I got about half of them done…

      2. Ivy Zelle says:

        and now she's sharing so the rest of us don't have to learn the hard way (: I like that supermarket quote. It IS unpredictable, isn't it? also I love how you drop some f-bombs and then casually switch over to oh bugger hahah. you should write, robin.

      3. Dave Ryan says:

        36yo on college candy? the point of this being attempted by 25 is you still don't realize your going to be just another housewife or if you really hit the genetic jackpot, a trophy wife.

    18. Jlyn says:

      15/25 complete and I'll be 21 in August.

    19. Nesquikable says:

      Damn, I'm 14 and i've done like half of the things on the list. Is life going to be boring now?

      1. Ivy Zelle says:

        I hope you did the ones like giving blood and doing habitat for humanity (: be safe, ness! you have plenty of time to be young.

    20. Luigi says:

      Young and crazy, you're young you have to be irresponsible?

    21. laurenii says:

      11/25 with 6 years left! I think i'm doing pretty well.

    22. Post Pk says:

      this is a great movie i have watch it:)

    23. Mary says:

      Let me get this straight? Before 25… be GOOD at the practice of sexual immorality(knowing that if you mess up, it could derail collegiate ambitions), do "an" (not specific) illegal drug so you can be hip and entertaining to your children(not mentioning that it could be one hit/one pop of someTHING that could kill you/mess your head up/AND if caught, the legal ramifications could mess up your college "worthiness" for years to come, MORE random sexing, practice label-shopping instead of being frugal.. Blog your life, instead of writing in a journal (promoting and open book tell all lifestyle). Agree with a lifestyle because it's the think "to-do".. and then…after ALL of that risky behavior go and donate blood.. LOL.. OOPS.. I'm on a website FOR kids … =0) While YOLO is the biggest thing out.. people need to remember YODO as well.. Make it WORTH SOMETHING

      1. Jess says:

        Yo when you're young you SHOULD do fun and crazy stuff, because as you get older you have more responsibility and want to get married have a family and all that. If this isn't fun for you, that's fine, but don't act condescending. What's wrong with having a hook up once in awhile? You act like they're saying to do it everyday. all these things are meant to be done once before 25, not all the time. What's wrong with treating yourself to a brand name if you feel like you deserve it and you're frugal the rest of the time? It says learn how to manage your money, way to ignore it. Even if you live long it doesn't mean you've lived a full life.

      2. Bee says:

        Not to mention that you actually *save* money if you splurge on one pair of $120 jeans that you wear constantly and last twelve times as long as the $30 pairs that lose their shape if you wear them daily for two weeks…

      3. Lia says:

        Just so you know, $30 jeans do not lose their shape after two weeks (or months, or heck even years). At least, none of mine have. After a few years the fabric will probably start to rip in the knees (of course, if you buy "destroyed" jeans, this would probably be different, but I never really got the point of that trend), but by then you'll most certainly have gotten your $30 worth.

        I know, I'm a total loser for keeping an item of clothing for more than a year. I keep them for as long as they still look good, and as it turns out, most still look practically brand new even after a year of frequent wear. I guess I probably *should* just throw them all out and spend thousands of dollars on a new wardrobe where nothing costs under $100, but…why?

        Oh, and um…why would you buy a single pair of jeans and wear them daily? Ew. You should at the very LEAST have two, and if you're going to be wearing jeans pretty much every day, probably more.

      4. Caitlynn says:

        She's not acting condescending. She is acting intelligent!

      5. princesslollie says:

        i aggree with u so feel bad…i can be young, have fun and still be mature and wellbehaved…

    24. AMM says:

      Hey College Candy! Interesting article. I wrote my own post using this article as my blogspiration. Check it out! http://amm-inordertobeirreplaceable.blogspot.com/

    27. dani says:

      I turn 25 in a month but I’ve done 23 out of 25. Not to talk down on one night stands but I don’t see me and my gorgeous boyfriend breaking up in the next month. I Also don’t think I have time to move out of country.. so I’m OK with 23

    28. princesslollie says:

      ill be 26 in a few months and granted i did some of those..most of them require money n travel which i wont be able to do til im 50 if im lucky..and theres is no way i will ever smoke anyhting..no drugs or cigs 4 this gal..i can young n mature and still have fun!

    29. Ourway says:

      24, have only been with my high school sweetheart going on 8 yrs and proud of it, never tried a cigarette or drug and will be proud to tell my kids that they never have to try it either, always stuck up for the kids who were picked on, took my parents out to dinner as soon as I started working at 16, managed my money since i began working. The other stuff is not as bad but these things I just dont understand. Is this how the new generation views life? One night stands and illegal drugs? Learn to be responsible before 25 please. Life is not about doing dumb things because you are young and you think its ok, its about doing what is right, helping those who need help, and looking back later and feeling proud of what you accomplished.

      1. Girl-Friend says:

        I am 26 and consider myself a good person. Unfortunately, I wanted graduate school and his idea of fun was never leaving the house or else drinking and driving. I was already in your mindset through a 10 year relationship that to my surprised relief, ended in divorce. Then, Ingot to spend the next two years making up for lost tme and never imagined that for myself. Hopefully you live and enjoy life as an independent woman and enjoy things together that are at times wild and crazy. Don't hold back for a man though. Im happy for you if it is working. Just consider my advice ….ten years is a long time. Ten more is an even bigger mistake. If anything about having a crazy time at your age makes you uncomfortable or lack confidence, you may want to make sure he really isn't holding you back. Just advice from a girl to another girl. Your life is bigger than it seems. Good luck…

      2. Lia says:

        Did it occur to you that maybe she's HAPPY in her relationship? Not wanting to have a one night stand because you're in a loving, committed relationship is not "holding back for a man," it's being loyal and faithful to someone you care about.

      3. NovaBrite says:

        Agreed. I've been with the same person since I was 16. I'm 27 now. I don't regret being with him, but it would have been nice if we'd met at 26 instead of 16. I missed out on getting to do things that I wanted to do, because I turned down a scholarship to an out-of-state college (so I could be near him), dropped out of college when I got pregnant at 19, celebrated my 21st birthday without a drink (because I was pregnant with number 2, and I got a water heater for my birthday present that year), and now at 27, I'm on my THIRD attempt at an undergrad degree (while I'm raising his THREE kids). Like I said, I don't regret my choice of partner, but now that I'm older and mired in unavoidable obligations, I wish I had a few more fun memories of wild times to reminisce about fondly.

    30. Selene says:

      This is crazy! The first thing on the list is a one night stand? Yeah, go ahead and be immoral, have a crazy one night stand (and make it one that comes with a free HIV), so you hopefully don't get to turn 25 at all, because you're dead or at least, almost dead, before you reach that age. Great advice.

      1. Bee says:

        Uh, ever heard of condoms?

      2. Mee says:

        condoms don't work all the time, guess you know that since you seem to know about it.

      3. Guest says:

        So it might just as well happen with a long-term relationship. Because one can never be sure that the partner is faithfull. So the above-comments are nonsense…

      4. Jessika says:

        Lmao lmao omg hahaha I so can't stop laughing becuz u r soooo right;) lmao omg this sight is wild! Ugh If we actually did all these things number one we could go to jail for the weed thing

    31. seriously... says:

      biggest bullshit ever. don't do drugs ever, don't you ever go "all-out" in vegas, don't sleep around with complete strangers. you'll miss nothnig, it's just the pressure from immoral retardes and rather the media that forces it upon you (not all, but rather those media that promote stupidity and ignorance above everything else). you're missing nothing for skipping those three, those three are a definite no.
      take a car and drive with your buddies to sea, or to a mountain instead. there are plenty of things you can do, go out and have fun, get yourself a diploma, a decent job, seek for a woman that you love. you don't need to accomplish everything that you want or that others want you do to (even if all of those are for your own good), your life can be fulfilled even if it isn't the perfect life from a fairy tale. but doing crap is nothing to be proud of.

    32. Ariana Romero says:

      I think it's great to encourage women to both take chances and be responsible. Either one in excess is an unbalanced life, but in moderation it'll lead to greatness.

      Yeah well lets see the first one could get you sick, killed, or pregnant ,,yeah HIV/AIDS, or any of the OTHER diseases like gonorrhea or heaven forbid syphilis or one of the hepatitis that cant be cured only controlled.
      Or genital warts, heck why do kids now treat herpes like a badge of honor, my sister had so many issues cause one of her ex's gave it to her.
      YEAH let go do some drugs and see what happens if you get caught, arrested, convicted, or you have to admit during an interview that you did a controlled substance that may get you fired, not hired or listed in areas you dont want like legal databases.
      NOW as for "GAY Pride", how about telling your gay friends that you support their right to make their own CHOICES but stay away from the parade. Biggest issue many normal(read heterosexual people violently hate is a gay person getting in their face proclaiming they are GAY.
      WE DONT CARE. ! What you do in your own private encounters is YOUR business. A friend showed me a video where a sorority hazed girls into lesbian sex acts to join. So to be IN and included they had to do immoral acts (yes I am straight and believe homosexuality is immoral, sorry do what you want its just the way I was raised) .
      And I mean the other girls literally made all girls perform sex act on them and other AND on them selves just to enter.
      Two of my friends have told their daughters no sorority, EVER unless they can prove nothing like this is going on.
      Everyone wonders why we have 1/2 the country on government handouts, out of work and the economy is failing. BECAUSE MOST 1/2 THE PEOPLE HAVE ABANDONED COMMON SENSE AMORAL AND VALUES!
      Used to be if same sex couples wanted to live together they did,,,now they think they have to make everyone feel out of place and that normal(ie man and woman) is bad. Sorry the biology of human is such that ONLY man and woman make a complimentary pair anything else is un natural. As for this list some can be done with good friends or bf/gf and some is just plain stupid and how about go to school get educated on what you are gonna do and get a job or start a business. OH and dont listen to the liberal dope smokin everyone deserves everything dip sticks. Too bad idiocy like this article gets printed or posted.

        (you realize that video was probably just a staged porn video right? fuckin weirdo)

    35. Cait says:

      The first 2 are one nights stand and illegal drugs? Hell NO! I'm sticking to my morals, thank you very much.

      1. Guest says:

        So one nigths stands ARE IMMORAL? which world do you live in? Do not tell me that this has something to do with RELIGION…

    36. Angie says:

      Everyone needs to lighten up, you're too young to be so stiff! It's okay to take chances responsibly. I am proud to say that I have accomplished the majority of the items on this list including the one night stand and the drugs. I am even more proud to say that I am going into my first semester of senior year and I have never had anything lower than a 3.8 GPA and I have no STDs or pregnancy scares. Remember that smooth rides make for boring stories. When I look back at my life when I'm a little old lady I want to look back at a life that I lived to the fullest!

    37. MiaMaya says:

      You guys are unbelievable. Its just a suggestion. its not like shes forcing you to, you can change acouple of the things around good god. yea the 1st one is a one night that, so what. if its a big deal. change it to your liking. their ideas. and are some of you guys seriously trying to tell people not to go to gay pride events, you people are so nosy, let people do their thing, ifgay pride events were so violate i think themd be changed and if it was really a big deal your hear about it on the news and i go to them allllll the time and shit like that never happens (im straight). and traveling to another country is just as dangers as walking around america so dont be ignortant. and they have special legit places for people backpacking to sleep at so quit busting her balls ok. if its such a big deal with morals then come up with YOUR OWN

      1. tanyanblz says:

        If it's "just a suggestion" then she would have put a disclaimer for this because obviously it says, "25 things TO DO" not "25 things I suggest you DO". Of course so many people would react to this: positively or negatively.

    38. GAYPRIDE says:

      There is something SERIOUSLY fucked up in your head

    39. Brace yourself my dear.

    40. Christina says:

      Nice list, I`ve done most of the things, just need to convince some of my friends that some things that are ok when you`re 22, are humiliating and stupid when done in your forties or later.

    41. Jose says:

      Thanks but no thanks. We all lived it up in our lives, but one this is for sure. Once the party is over, its healing time. I'm learning that most things we "do" or "did" like that will take a toll on your mind. I.m not so sure, but after 25 is difficult stages. Your mind starts developing. And it needs to heal.

    42. Drakk says:

      This was very stupid and immature.

      1. Kel says:

        Yeah, who wrote this? A 15 year old? I'm 22 and my to-do list include things like: graduate from college, get a good career, obtain financial stability, travel the world (and, no, not Vegas. Maybe China or Germany. Hell, I'd rather go to D.C. or see the Grand Canyon), and perhaps find a suitable life-partner (but I won't force the issue, it will come when it comes). Honestly. There's nothing wrong with having fun, but this list is insipid.

    43. […] 25 things to do before 25 […]

    44. Akilah says:

      Whatever. But I'm definitely going to Vegas before I'm 25

    45. ddddddddddd says:

      The author of this is just like the thousands of girls I goto college with. Complete airhead.

    46. Angie says:

      The one night stand is a bad idea, not just because of the STD risk, but because for women who really want to find the love of their lives, just one one-night stand will cause regret. It may not be fair, but most highly desirable men don't respect women who have had even one one-night stand.

      Sure, you don't have to tell your future dream man about that one-night stand, but what's the point of doing these things on this list if you feel like you have to keep them secret from your partner? I'm 37 years old. Trust me, if you have any once of self-respect, you will feel dirty after that one one-night stand for many years to come.

      BTW, some other items on this list are great ideas. I especially like the ones about traveling abroad and learning to take care of your finances. I wish high schools taught personal finance.

    47. Gigi says:

      All i know is by 25, I don't want to be like you. Your advice about telling girls to jump head first into spontaneous (possibly unprotected) sex, with someone they absolutely don't care about is simply nasty and moronic. Oh yeah and yep, buy 25 defs want to make sure that I broke the law with a possible potential criminal record and had drug lord besties by taking an illegal drug. Yep at 25 all I want to be is not you.

    48. Pazzo says:

      You're foolish.Do u and let me do me

    49. asdf says:

      i did next to none of those and i don't miss any at all.
      you forgot to use the good old "it's good for the lungs" about "teh weed" and that crap talk which essentially resulted with devirginization of about 80% of stupid teenagers. i mean, how stupid can someone be to believe that weed is good for you? or how stupid can someone be to fall on the old trick of pushing shame/blame upon a virgin?
      yeah, i forgot, it works on almost anyone because they have no opinion of their own.

      1. Aaa says:

        Weed isn't that bad and who cares about "devirginization"?

    50. naoma says:

      Personally most of these are quite unappealing. Before I was 25 I did a couple of them — but the ones I did not do — I did not Miss Anything. Mostly stupid advice, if you don't mind me saying. As a starter the one-night stand could give you diseases or pregnancy. After that none were worth reading. I did read them, however, and still feel that way.

    51. Amber says:

      This is such a stupid article. "ooh better do drugs so my future kids will think I'm cool". I lost respect for my mom when she told me she did drugs when she was young.
      I should have sex with a complete stranger, nothing could possibly go wrong.
      I bet you're one of those that think YOLO is an ungodly deep concept.

      oh yikes, didn't this open a can of worms? personally, I would rather wait it out for the right guy than have a one night stand as seriously tempting as the dude's gorgeousness might make it. and I happen to like being conscious and able to fend for myself so I don't think I'm up for illegal drugs as tempting as letting go and mellowing out might be. not to mention I'm at university on scholarship, so losing it because I smoked weed wouldn't be cool, more like yes kids we all live in this dingy apartment bc my funding was dropped and I have a ridiculous job. haha. but I'm all for letting go and having fun too! I drink and go crazy with my friends and I'm also not a virgin although I really respect ppl who don't drink and practice abstinence. A whole lot more than I respect those who have sex with random people and show themselves no respect at all. I'm one heck of an awesome person and shall treat myself as such! self respect, for the win!

      You should be ashamed of writing this list. For one, none of these are things you can't do after 25. Also, doing drugs and encouraging random sex with strangers? Really? Gross. Are you going to be there to treat the STDs this list generates? Most of this list is how to be an irresponsible teenager well into your 20s. This was either written by a kid, or by someone in their 30s or 40s who regrets their own life choices.

        You're 18. Your thoughts and beliefs are going to change SO much. You think you have it all figured out, you don't. You'll learn. Good luck with ALL that. Part of the point of this article is not to do all 25 things, but to live, and realize that everyone makes mistakes, but just learn from them through experience. It builds character.

      2. The biggest problem I have with your comment (and I have many, but I don't have all day to go through them) is when you said "where is the self respect" when referring to one night stands. HAVING SEX DOES NOT MEAN YOU DON'T RESPECT YOURSELF. Sex is a pleasurable act that releases endorphins into the body that help with many things. A women can respect herself enough to seek this pleasure even if she is not in a committed relationship. Sex is a natural part of human nature that people, especially girls, should not be ashamed off. It is our messed up culture that makes people feel bad for doing something natural and pleasurable. As long as you use a condom and birth control the odds are very low that there will be any negative consequences. If someone wants to be a virgin that's good and if someone wants to have sex that's equally good. As long as it's consensual and pleasant for everyone involved, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a one night stand.

      Lets encourage girls to get raped and make stupid decisions. Oh, wait. Let's just let them do the shit they were already doing half-assed to get raped and make stupid decisions.

    59. @D1AnnD says:

      Huh? I would not encourage anyone under 25 to do half this stuff.

    60. kvl says:

      i did some of these. ONS turned into a 7 month and counting relationship.
      weed isnt as great as everyone says, but if you do it while your brain is already developed, no harm.

    61. Liquid Ass says:

      Hah, sounds like such fun to me. Remind me, why should I listen to this? Encouraging me to break the law? And I'm pretty sure (I'm a guy) that manual driving has never got me erect.

    62. Tuco says:

      This has to be the dumbest thing I have ever read. What is this, a guide for people who have no imagination or creativity when it comes to life? Should be called “25 steps to a vanilla existence.”
