25 Before I’m 26 – the List

I’ve been sat here for the last hour or so trying to write this post – it’s not even particularly hard – it’s about my birthday and the goals I wrote about 19 weeks ago and yet I’ve got like writers block lol.

So if that made no sense what so ever! I made a list of goals to achieve by my birthday. This is what it looked like:

  1. Read Angelology by Danielle Trussoni
  2. Complete 30 Days of Lists
  3. Buy/Borrow and watch Gone with the Wind.
  4. Watch Superbowl 45 (February 2011)
  5. Watch It’s A Wonderful Life.
  6. Volunteer at Children in Need.
  7. Meet up with an old school friend.
  8. Watch Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1.
  9. Have a Father/Daughter Day.
  10. Make 25% of my Christmas cards by hand.
  11. Finish my NaNoWriMo story.
  12. Buy The Nightmare Before Christmas on DVD.
  13. Watch The Nightmare Before Christmas.
  14. Go for cake and drink with Brains
  15. Be included in the Christmas Performance at Church
  16. Meet @Beccaspeaks
  17. Write part/whole play.
  18. Complete 100 Films goal for 101 Things.
  19. Complete Alphabet of Films goal for 101 Things
  20. Complete a photo a day for a month (31 photos) (Jan 2011)
  21. Have friends round for dinner.
  22. Buy Miracle on 34th Street (Remake) on DVD
  23. Watch Miracle on 34th Street
  24. Watch a Ballet or Opera.

So at the end of March I wrote an update – I was down to one goal well unfortunately I ran out of time so I only completed 23 of my 24 goals. As of tomorrow I start a new list of goals. Bring it on!

To start with I have these:

  1. Read Love Wins by Rob Bell
  2. Take part in the “Messiah From Scratch” (Christmas 2o11)
  3. Watch Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 (November 2011)
  4. Re-read Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows
  5. Go on an adventure within the UK on my own
  6. Read The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein
  7. Make 10 items to open an Etsy Store
  8. Visit a Foreign Country
  9. Go on a road trip
  10. Watch 40 films I’ve never seen before
  11. Read 5 biographies
  12. Lean and Memorise 10 scales on the Bass Guitar
  13. Read 3 of the 6 Jane Austen novels
  14. Watch the 3 Lord of The Ring Films (again)
  15. Read the 3 Lord of The Ring Books.
  16. Meet @Ellefie in person (If you don’t read it go read her blog – she’s my birthday buddy)

That’s it so far – I have 11 10 more spots to fill – I guess it gets harder as I get older but it’s things to work towards also I’m pretty sure at least 3 of the goals should be separate ones rather than parts of one goal.

      I wrote last years list and realised that I’d never actually seen it so buying it and watching it seemed like a good plan – then when we saw another show with the “What’s This” music on it I got very excited about it and told Chris that I wouldn’t have known what it was without seeing NBC 🙂
