25 before 26

I hope you don’t mind my sharing something a little more personal here. Since it’s based on my birthday, I figure it should be life goals, or things I really want to accomplish personally. I’m trying to make them simple to check off (rather than “work on being…”), so it’ll be easy to track my progress 😀

And, without further ado, my list!

  1. Bake a pie from scratch
  2. Start truly planning for a hike on the Appalachian Trail
  3. Embroider a painting (been on my list forever)
  4. Take a weekend away with Alex
  5. Participate in a 5K
  6. Write & send a letter to someone I admire
  7. Get my motorcycle license
  8. Learn to play Go
  9. Stretch & paint a looong canvas
  10. Build a new piece of furniture for our home
  11. Go on a real picnic (must include a basket + blanket!)
  12. Spend a day enjoying all things AUSTIN.
  13. Draw every day for a month (again)
  14. Dedicate a day to rainbows
  15. Finish and share an original comic
  16. Devote a day to spreading kindness to strangers
  17. Host a wine party
  18. Enjoy an evening on the balcony
  19. Be happy with my body
  20. Start an herb garden
  21. Have a photo shoot with friends
  22. Visit a National Monument I haven’t seen before
  23. Try a new sport
  24. See a live musical
  25. Read 25 books

That averages out to just over 2 a month…shouldn’t be too hard, right? I guess I’ll be updating throughout the coming year. Here’s to some fun adventures!

  1. Sad to see that “visit my best friend” didn’t make the list. 😉 However, I am sure you will have a lovely time getting to do the others!

    1. Since I couldn’t adjust my comment, or delete and re-type, I’d like to add:

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I hope you get to do everything on your list. If you should need any help with any, you know where to find me 😉

  2. Great list! If you need a buddy for the 5K let me know! And I’m not trying to brag here but I know A LOT about musicals so if you need suggestions (or a buddy again) I’m here for you! 😉
