21 Goals Revisited

HIYA. It’s my 22nd birthday today!

I feel old. So old that I wouldn’t have acknowledged my new age in a post if it weren’t for the fact that I set myself a list of 21 goals for my year of being 21 this time last year. I said that I would revise the list on my 22nd birthday… so here we go!

1. Become more adventurous with my wardrobe

2. Save up and treat myself to a “luxury” item – I mean, I kind of doubted this one from the start. I fritter away my money too much to save up for something…

3. Go to a music festival

4. Sign up for something new

5. Graduate with at least a 2:1 (PRESSUUUURE)

6. Go sightseeing in at least one location

7. Spend more time exploring Glasgow on days off (no sleeping till 5pm!) – I’m not quite sleeping till 5am any more… but I definitely haven’t seen enough of the city yet.

8. Take part in a competition of some sort

9. Watch all the Harry Potter films (I’ve never seen or read anything from the franchise – I’m actually quite reluctant to let this one go) – and I didn’t let it go. The avoidance continues…

10. Visit another country – Gutted that I didn’t get to do this one. Graduation used up all of my summer holidays and I’ve had zero time (or funds) during term time!

11. Attend a concert (I haven’t been to one in months 🙁) – Came very close to it, but didn’t make any this year. Unless you count the individual acts at TRNSMT?

12. Attempt ice skating

13. Reach 300 followers on the blog

14. Have a night out in a different UK city (Glasgow’s getting old…!) – Shockingly, still haven’t achieved this one. Too much effort…

15. Do at least one thing that scares me

16. FINALLY try a pumpkin spice latte – I’ve been meaning to do this all month this October!! But still none – and surely that would’ve been the easiest in the list!?

17. Learn a new skill

18. Start and maintain a jar of positive things to have happened in the year – I bought the jar, and then kind of forgot the rest…

19. Take up reading again – Again, bought all the books, just haven’t really given myself time to sit and take the time to read them. I spend my time before bed on Twitter!!

20. Build up knowledge on a specific subject

21. Learn new recipes (and save money on takeaway pizzas)

    I made myself a similar life of 21 before 21, and I was the same with things like reading books. Uni life is just so busy isn’t it! This is a great post and reflection on your year!
