Not that I have any control over your life, but if I had my way youíd be sure to experience as much as possible including these five things. Of course, there are many more things everyone should experience, but in my short lifetime thus far, Iíve found my most powerful experiences have come through these areas.

You Should Travel to a Foreign Country

If you havenít traveled outside of your comfort zone, you absolutely must do so at least once. Travel to an entirely new continent if possible. Traveling from the United States to Italy, for example, will show you a history thousands of years older than what youíre used to and give you the opportunity to experience submersion in an entirely new language and cultural experience.

You Should See Broadway

If you live in New York or the vicinity, youíre in luck, but if not donít despair. There are many Broadway productions that travel the country and occasionally beyond. Always keep an eye out for shows arriving in your area so that you can obtain tickets. They are pricey, but so very well worth it. The power of the more magnificent productions is breathtaking. My favorites? Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera, but any Broadway production will do.

You Should Complete a Mission Trip

There are so many gifts that you have in your life Ė including the fact that you can read this and have access to the internet. Sign up with a group that travels to areas of the country or world that are less fortunate to offer what you can to help others. The feeling of satisfaction at making someone elseís world a better place through sheer effort is quite empowering, but if nothing else, youíll never take what you have for granted again.

You Should Have a Part-Time Job

When I got my first part-time job outside of babysitting and such, it was a truly eye-opening experience. Food service, retail and other jobs will teach you far more about the real world and life in it than you can ever imagine. Experience as much as you can through part-time jobs to truly get a feel for your areas of interest and strengths and weaknesses. There is a reason universities and employers like to see students with part-time work experience Ė itís a huge developmental step and teaches you far more than you can ever imagine.

You Should Spent Time at Summer Camp

I donít care what kind of camp it is, but there is something about spending a week or two away from home learning how to get along with seven bunk-mates that is life forming. Some of the best friends youíll ever have youíll meet at camp and some of the best pranks youíll ever pull will occur at summer camp as well. A coed camp can teach you far more about teen relationships than you might think Ė itís the only time Iíve ever had a relationship last less than four days.

I intend to go see a musical and I have had 1 part time job when I was in high school...but other than that, nothing's realistic for me anymore. I wish my mom had the money to send me to camp, it was always a dream I had, but no... I couldn't take a mission trip, even though I'd LOVE to, my husband's work would get in the way and there's no way I'm going by myself! As for the foreign country that's way out of my price range, plus I'd rather spend the money to go see my much missed family in California anyhow, lol.

Great article! (even though it made me realize how unfortunate and poor I was as a child... )

I've already done...all of those. Exchange student, Fiddler on the Roof and Lion King and Sweeney Todd, painting homes on a Native American reservoir, I'm on my second part-time job and I went to camp for a week back in second grade. I'm set.

Holy cow. Who else?!
