  • 15.03.18 / 박차현

It is said that one’s twenties are the most wonderful and spectacular moments of one’s life. Entering one’s twenties means becoming a legal adult in Korea. In other words, the twenties represent the years of freedom. The thought about being free makes people eager to face many kinds of challenges. However, this sudden freedom can make the twenties lost in chaos. Since people have to be responsible for every choice they make, they sometimes feel afraid to make new choices. Therefore, most people tend to follow what others do. One’s twenties represent the most important period of life. It creates one’s value and point of view about life. Creating a bucket list, for example, will help this kind of problem. The bucket list is a list of things to do before you die. However, instead of creating a bucket list for life, designing your ‘twenties’ bucket list will be more efficient in terms of spending your twenties more worthwhile and reaching many passionate goals. Below are some of the common twenties bucket lists:

 

 

Go on a trip

Traveling alone or with friends is many people’s number one on the bucket list. First of all, going on a trip alone is a great way to have time for oneself and give a thought about oneself. These days, people are living on a busy routine. People always have something to do in their hands, especially with their smart phones. With this kind of constant activities, most people barely have time to think at all. Therefore, going somewhere alone for a few days can give them some time to think. Thinking about the past and the future is beneficial particularly in self-development. While on a trip, people can find what they really desire to do, what they need to do in order to achieve their dreams, and their true selves. Second, travelling with friends will leave the most unforgettable memories. A journey with friends can not only strengthen friendship with each other but also they can learn how to deal with problems together. Although travelling requires time and money, it is worth it.

Read books

One will be surprised when one gets to know all the benefits that one can receive from simply reading a book. In fact, the advantages are so great that counting all the benefits is almost impossible. Some of the main benefits are that reading can improve one’s memory, reduce stress, help to concentrate better, and promote conversation skills. It is also recommended to search for one’s own life book. This means to find a book that can help you whenever you are having a difficulty in life.

Drink properly

Entering the twenties means that people are legally allowed to drink. It is safe to say that drinking has become one of the customs in Korean universities. Through drinking alcohol, students tend to relieve their stress and become close to one another. In that way, drinking itself is not bad; however, the problem is drinking too much. It is harmful to be drunk. Being drunk not only affects negatively in health but also plays a big role in aggravating relationship with people. Therefore, knowing your drinking limit is important. You don’t want to lose your most close friends and yourself physically and psychologically. Always remember to drink only a proper amount!

Volunteer

Volunteering is known as a living book. One can learn numerous amounts of life lessons by just volunteering. However, when people first hear about volunteering, they usually think of helping seniors in sanatorium. Actually there are many different volunteer activities in exhibitions, festivals, international events, and forums in various fields. Therefore, by volunteering in many different fields that one is interested in, one can pre-experience and learn many valuable lessons from a variety of working places. Volunteering is not taking your things away but earning the non-exchangeable.

Capture your moments

People say that one’s twenties are the most beautiful moments in life. Therefore, take as many pictures of yourself as possible! Capture the best moments in your daily life. Although some of the photos may feel like meaningless pictures, years and years later on, those pictures will bring back precious memories.

The twenties are filled with passion. To avoid having regrets later on about our twenties, we should use our time of youth efficiently. The activities above are only a small part of the ‘twenties’ bucket list. There are many other activities that will influence your life. Create your own ‘twenties’ bucket lists. Let’s use our passion more wisely from now on!
