25 Before 25

I meant to write this post on Friday (my actual birthday) but I was on vacation and my internet connection at the resort was disgustingly slow. Despite the slow wifi, it was a fun trip and a great way to start off my 24th year. I've been putting together some other ways to make it a great year, since I'm obsessed with goals and lists, I obviously had to make a list of 25 things to do before I turn 25. Here it goes.

  1. Create a short stop-motion film
  2. Re-open my shop with a whole lot of new vintage and handmade items
  3. Try bikram yoga
  4. Bake a really good chicken pot pie
  5. Watch all of the movies nominated for best picture at the Academy Awards before the show
  6. Launch a new lifestyle blog with my friends
  7. Attempt NaNoWriMo
  8. Plant a garden
  9. Get my passport
  10. Take a trip somewhere with my girlfriends, probably Vegas, but we'll see
  11. Volunteer somewhere
  12. Brush up on my Spanish language skills (which are basically non-existent at the moment)
  13. Read at least 40 books
  14. Do at least 1 crafty/DIY project on this blog every week
  15. Find a cool apartment and move there
  16. Visit a Michigan winery
  17. Write and plan an entire murder mystery dinner party
  18. Bake bread from scratch
  19. Throw a Hunger Games party
  20. Participate in Relay for Life again
  21. Sew a dress using a pattern and not taking any shortcuts
  22. Get another tattoo
  23. Come up with a really creative Halloween costume
  24. Take some kind of class so I can learn a new skill
  25. Go see a musical or play

Last year's 24 before 24 list was pretty much a failure. I think I completed 3 or 4 things out of 24, but it was due to some opportunities that came up that I couldn't really turn down. What can you do? So some of these items are repeats, but I should have more schedule flexibility this year and I'm determined to get more of these accomplished.

  1. Good luck with your list! I'm doing 101 in 1001 and plugging away at it slowly but surely, haha. My one-year mark is in mid-April :)

  2. I love your list. I'm a wuss and prefer to not make a list of similar sorts because...well I don't think I'd fair too well. I love the idea of starting a lifestyle blog with your friends. I'd follow it! The Hunger Games party sounds...pretty spectacular also. Needless to say I'm excited for your list :p

  3. I love this list! I've never done one of these before, but I'm planning on starting one in May for when I turn 23. I love the idea of the stop-motion video and murder mystery party!

  4. ooo a murder mystery dinner would be soo fun!

  5. Good luck girl! I don't think you'll have hard time with #23 ;)

  6. Your list is awesome! I hope you meet your goals. I vote you do the Murder Mystery party asap because you will fall in love and want to do them ALL THE TIME! I have been to 5 or 6 my friends/family take turns writing them we have 2-3 a year. The best one to start out with is Clue because most people know who the characters are already and it is easy to write.


Leave a note! I love to hear from you!
