In honor of my 25th birthday.. and the math geek in me feeling oddly satisfied at the fact that it’s a perfect square.. I decided to make a list of 5 things I hope to do this year (in no particular order)!
I’m super excited for this one because I’m actually going to Montreal this weekend just in time for the Mural Festival. Currently working on a mini guide for the trip that I might share on here! I’m sure someone might find it useful. Also hoping to visit the West Coast for the first time.. Arizona and California are on my list.
2. Create create create!
Don’t think many people know this about me.. but I looooove to get crafty! I’m hoping to make more cards this year and get my embroidery skills up! Another goal is to work on my photography, get out of my shell, reach out to people and bring my ideas to life. Oh and maybe I should add writing more posts to the list.. whoops.
3. Quality time!
If left to myself, I tend to gravitate towards being kind of a recluse.. but as I get older I’m realizing how important it is to spend time with the people I love. So this year I want to strive to be more present.. whether that is traveling to see family/friends, shooting a text, or even a phone call (as much as us millennials hate them :P). Trying to have my actions speak louder than my words when it comes to showing my appreciation to others.
4. Drive more!
If you’ve read some of my older posts, then you probably know that I was really working on getting my license. Welp, your girl finally got it this year!!! And yes, while that is a huge milestone for me, I really need to start feeling more comfortable behind the wheel. So cheers to kicking butt and taking names.
5. Stimulate my mind!
Anybody else feel like they’ve stopped reading after graduating (or just growing older?).. I can read a bunch of articles but when it comes to committing to a book… the struggle is REAL. There are books in my room that I would like to read/reread (currently working on The Alchemist).. but I know that I tend to struggle with wanting to see results or being a finished product immediately, so I’m going to try not to be so hard on myself about this one. My goal is to incorporate more podcasts, reading, and meditating into my routine but not in a way that is suffocating. Need to find a balance!
Looking forward to seeing what lies ahead.. 24 kicked my butt.. but 25, I am ready to kick yours!
To those who follow me or read my posts… thank you for sticking around♡
