I turn twenty-five today. I feel good, like I’m ready for the next step in my life. It’s a good feeling.
I’m a big fan of lists, and as my birthday drew nearer, I started to think of all the things I wanted to get done in my twenty-fifth year. Some are huge, some are small.
one | go to the Philippines with James.
two | apply and get accepted to nursing school.
three | get married.
three | become more flexible (my knees!).
four | maintain a skin care routine.
five | take a bubble bath once a week.
six | read more. I used to be an insatiable reader, and I’d like to start the addiction again.
seven | get healthier.
eight | be more spontaneous.
nine | learn to forgive easier.
ten | take a cooking class and learn some mad knife skills.
eleven | learn to live more simply and with less.
twelve | volunteer more.
thirteen | bike more.
fourteen | drive less.
fifteen | expand my musical horizons.
sixteen | finally watch the star wars trilogy.
seventeen | finally watch the lord of the rings trilogy.
eighteen | spend a day wandering in a new neighborhood.
nineteen | be more confident.
twenty | learn to bake.
twenty-one | buy more flowers.
twenty-two | drink more water.
twenty-three | be more patient.
twenty-four | be a better partner and friend.
twenty-five | call my grandmother more often.
Have a happy Tuesday!
