It just hit me that it’s 2016 next year. The final year of my 20s. Yes, I’ll be 29 in 2016.

To commemorate the blast of a ride I’ve had, I’ve decided to list 12 crazy/things-I’ve-always-wanted-to-do-but-haven’t in 2016. I’ll do one thing a month. Sounds do-able, right?

Here are my 12 things for 12 months of 2016:

Update: 2.30am, Friday, 23 September.

  1. Dye my hair a totally different and new color I’ve never had. Get red / grey highlights. Just cause. (Done)
