22 Before 22

It's official. I've reached my 21st birthday (as of Wednesday 4th October). I've arrived at that stage in my life where I am formally addressed as an "adult", whatever that means. Although Pop Tarts and Unicorn Fruit Loops are my favoured snacks at the mo (because apparently I'm accommodating quite the unicorn collection). Should I be concerned that I've reached this stage at the unripe age of 21? I sure as hell hope not. To be honest, I'm more worried about my age-old rose gold addiction continuously having an impact on my life choices - copper toilet holder anyone? 

I don't know whether it's my growing obsession with unicorns, hitting that all important 21 milestone, finally realising I am on the perfect path (I hope) - or a mix of all three of the above, but I am super eager to jump head first into the only 21st year I will ever have. My new-found age spurred me to write a blog post - 22 things to do before I turn 22 (and you can personally tell me off if I do not stick to my word). I won't bore you with 22 explanations - just 22 goals.
