My 25 By 25 List

What's a 25 by 25 list?
It's a list of things you want to accomplish before you turn 25. Now, I just had a birthday. I turned 24.
Yes, I took a picture of myself jumping on my birthday. I'm weird like that. 
SO, my list. It actually took me much longer than I thought to come up with this list. I also would like to sidestep for a second to point out my poofy hair in that jumping picture -__-
I am leaning towards a pixie cut....and soon. We'll see if I go through with it. 
I'm thinking we'll just get right to the list. I will also be doing this on my other blog to keep myself super accountable. My other blog is a different style of blogging and writing, but I believe this list needs to be everywhere, I don't want to cut myself short. 
Now, in no particular order...

  1. Keep a budget
  2. Get a new car
  3. 1000 miles (run or bike)
  4. Read 25 books
  5. Try 25 new things
  6. Take a pole dancing or self defense class
  7. Try another 3 day detox
  8. Make a new friend
  9. Get my health coach certification
  10. Stop biting my nails
  11. Have a movie marathon {Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter...}
  12. Sell my photography
  13. Grow something {more importantly, don't kill it}
  14. Get a laptop
  15. Save money
  16. Start paying off student loans and credit cards
  17. Hike the narrows or subway
  18. Learn some German
  19. Get better sleep
  20. Visit a new National Park
  21. Get indoor plants to detox the air
  22. Clear up my skin
  23. Complete 25 projects
  24. Document my life {project life scrapbooking}
  25. Make the best of it!

That's my list. Did you make one? Plan on making one? What would you add? I'm thinking of making it look fun and hanging it up on my walls somewhere to keep reminding me of what's on my list so I can keep focused. Think I can do it? I have no clue to be honest. 
I'll tell you this, I'm already back on a running schedule {#3}, I have started using YNAB {#1}, I've set up a photography website/Etsy/Blog/Facebook page {#12}, I got a full-time position at the job I'm at {#15, #16, #14, #2}, I live near two or three National Parks I haven't been to {#20}, I already have the Project Life supplies/camera/blog {#24}, I have plenty of books awaiting one-on-one time on the Kindle {#4}, and I've picked up some materials to assist in learning German {#18}... 
That's a start, but there's a lot to be done to get through it!! Keep following me to find out how this journey goes. 

That's me, on my 24th birthday, making the most of life.
