Normally a lady never reveals her age… but then, I am what I am. And I am heading towards to end of the third decade of my life. Before I have some kind of meltdown or existential crisis, I decided to make myself a little list. I love lists. They make me happy. And the other day I was feeling mighty overwhelmed and needed to find some happy place in my mind. So I took out one of my new coloured pens, I chose the toffee colour, and let my mind wander and dream.
I have written here before about my goals, dreams and aspirations. Just like before, I believe that writing them down and sharing them help to cement those dreams into real and potential goals. In some ways, sharing these goals on my blog makes me feel more accountable to achieve them. Not that you are all sat there drumming your fingers on the table waiting for me to succeed (or are you?).
By sharing one of my goals, setting up an online vintage shop, I kind of had that niggling feeling at the back of my mind that not only would I let myself down if I didn’t try it, but that other’s would know that I didn’t try either.
So this time I am sharing some ‘things I would like to do before I turn 30 years old’.
open an online vintage shop (done)
learn to drive
move in with the boyf
host a cocktail party
develop accessories for The Rosalilium Shop
attend some networking events
go to the Ballet
make a photo gallery in my home
write my Burma series on Rosalilium
learn to crochet a granny square
visit one new place (village, town or city) a month
read more books
take a road-trip with the boyf
make fresh homemade lemonade
buy Polaroid film and take photos
write an article for a magazine
celebrate my Master’s graduation in style
take an art/craft day class
enjoy my hammock
go on a camping trip
reupholster the ottoman
take photobooth photos with the boyf
improve my photography
visit my Grandparent’s and learn their life histories
meet up with old friends
apply for the Churchill travel fund
design a range of greetings cards
make more homemade booze
I may or may not achieve them all, but it will be fun to try.
Are you a list-fanatic? Do you have some ‘things you would like to do/achieve’ this year? Please share!
