    Ok, so it's not happening to me for quite a few months, but I and my friends are slightly panicking about leaving our teens behind. We were chatting about all the things that are only really acceptable when you're a teenager, and I figured TSR could help me come up with a list .

    So, anyone got any ideas of the things you absolutely have to do before you leave your teens behind?

    I have over 6 months to work my way through the list, and am hoping to leave a few to do on the big day (deary me, I'm dramatic :rolleyes:). Though I am hoping that I've done quite a few of them already .

    1. Volunteer for a charity
    2. Take my mom away for a weekend/mini-break
    3. Go to the US
    4. Find a special guy
    5. Get to a point where I'm happy with my weight/body
    6. Get back to my original blonde hair, argh
    7. Have a career plan

    Hmm, considering 20 is just over a year away for me, I'd better not make any more or I won't be able to keep them!

    Make a list of twenty ancient(try keeping it to twenty, not easy) classical, medieval, renaissance, industrial, modern wonders of the world, and see them all. I'd love to do that before I die. Turning twenty sadly can only be done once

    I particularly want to see first hand The Pyramids, The Colloseum, The Acropolis, the Taj Mahal, Ankgor Wat,The Sistine Chapel,The Statue of Liberty, CERN, well you get the picture.

    I've seen the Eiffel tower, but that's it. I've also seen an acropolis on Rhodes, but not The Acropolis.

    I've got less than a month, so I think the one thing I want to do before I become 20, is to relax, and NOT make a list. :p:

    I've done the bold, so that's not too bad . And the blond one doesn't apply :p:. (Though can I just say that you are absolutely *gorgeous*, from what I can tell you have a nice body, and that red hair really suits you.)

    Aww shucks, thanks I've had it like that for about 5 years, I reckoned it was time for a change and my friends unanimously voted for blonde hehe.

    The Colosseum looks great until you get inside, The Sistine Chapel ceiling would look much better if it was brighter but can't be for obvious reasons. The Statue of Liberty is alright but the Immigration Centre in Ellis island is much more interesting.

    Yay, I have seen The Sistine Chapel, The Colloseum, and the Acropolis,

    I think you should add Ephesus to your list because it is amazing plus you need to see Venice!!!!

    Get a job! Never had one because I've been busy drinking/learning. I definitely NEED to gain more independence also, which the latter will help achieve.
