25 Things I Want To Do Before 25.

dsc_0004

I’ve seen so many blog posts around lately about setting goals before 20, 25, 30 etc. So, I thought I’d do my own. So, when I hit 25 in 3 years time.. I know i’m getting old, it means I can do a follow up post on things I’ve achieved. I’m making this list realistic as, as much as I’d love to travel around Africa and go on a safari there, I know myself I won’t be achieving that in 3 years. So, here is my list of things I want to achieve in the next 3 years.

GOAL 1. SWIM WITH DOLPHINS

I’ve always wanted to do this since I was a little girl, so hoping when I finally get around to booking a holiday I can do it there.

GOAL 2SEE MCFLY LIVE 30 TIMES

A strange goal, maybe, but they are my favourite band. I’ve seen them live about 22 times now, so 30 isn’t that far away really!

GOAL 3. BE ENGAGED

I’ve been with my boyfriend for over 2 years now, and we are a pretty strong couple! I can’t imagine my life without him so I do hope in the next 3 years he pops the question, who knows though! But a girl can dream!

GOAL 4. MOVE TO THE CITY

I live in a small seaside town, so moving to the city would be a big step, but a step I definitely need to take. It would definitely bring me out of my shell more to!

GOAL 5. DO A COLLEGE COURSE

This is something I’ve had on my mind for ages now, and something I might even start soon, but I know myself and can be quite lazy when it comes to things like that, but I want to have my dream job, and need to start from somewhere.

GOAL 6. HAVE A SUCCESSFUL BLOG

This is a main goal of mine, I want to work harder, work with brands and hit 1000 bloglovin’ followers. I have a lot of work to do before I hit that goal, but with hard work and not giving up I can do it!

GOAL 7. GO ON MY FIRST HOLIDAY WITH COLIN

We’ve never been away abroad before, the only places we’ve been are in the UK so it would be nice to get away and enjoy some time together.

GOAL 8. GO AWAY ON A GIRLS HOLIDAY

I’ve always wanted to go away with the girls on a relaxing holiday, and hope in the next few years if our life’s aren’t to busy we can pack up our things and jet off to somewhere hot!

GOAL 9. LEARN MORE ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY

I love taking photos especially when it comes to blogging, but I’ve got a lot more to learn and hope that with a lot of practise and a photography book I’ll get better.

GOAL 10. BAKE MORE

I love baking, and have all the things for baking like a great mixer, but just never do it. I really need to get off my bum and spend more time in there baking.

GOAL 11. GO TO A BOOK SIGNING

I’ve always wanted to go to a book signing, I love reading and really want to go to one and see what they are like. I’ve met plenty of bands and even actors but never authors. Giovanna Fletcher is my favourite author and definitely a book signing I’d love to go to!

GOAL 12. EAT HEALTHIER

My eating habits are bad, and lazy. If I want some dinner I usually just go for a easy option of pizza. I’m a sucker for anything with cheese, bread or pasta based so I need to get away from that and eat more veggies! As I don’t eat a lot of meat, so there is nothing stopping me becoming healthier.

GOAL 13. DO A CHARITY RUN

I’ve recently done a charity walk and loved it! Next step is training to do a charity run! I know if I put my mind to it I’ll achieve it.

GOAL 14. BE BODY CONFIDENT

A lot of people say I’m slim, and I have a great body, but when I look in the mirror I don’t see that. I’m not miserable with my body, I just want a toned stomach and it’s something I’m definitely going to try and achieve.

GOAL 15.  DO A MAKE UP COURSE

A thing I love to do is make up, and when people ask me about certain make up looks I do, it honestly makes my day! Scotland has a beauty school just near Glasgow, so I’d love to go and learn more, and get qualified at the end of it!

GOAL 16. SEE DEMI LOVATO LIVE

Demi Lovato is my Queen, I love her, and I am itching to see her live! If I met her that would be even better!

GOAL 17. LEARN TO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT 

This is really random, but back in high school I wasn’t that bad at playing the piano and it’s something I definitely want to pick up at and learn again. We have a keyboard in the house, so I definitely need to get that dusted off and learn again.

GOAL 18. GO BACK TO DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL

I went in 2013 and absolutely love it, and by far the best festival I’ve ever been to. If you like rock/metal music it’s definitely a festival you’d be interested in.

GOAL 19. GO TO A BLOGGING EVENT

I’ve always wanted to go to a blogging event, and meet fellow bloggers I speak to online. I’m not sure Scotland do many, but I’d be willing to travel further!

GOAL 20. START A YOUTUBE CHANNEL

My best friend, Louise is always telling me to start one, and I want to, I just hate my voice! But, if I want to achieve goals and dreams, I need to stop being stupid and start one!

GOAL 21. LEARN TO DRIVE IN THE CITY

I love driving, but I have a comfort zone and stick to it. I have never driven on a motorway, and even though I don’t think it would be that bad, I stop myself everytime.

GOAL 22. GO TO DISNEYLAND

I have been before when I was 7, and I love everything Disney so I really want to go again, even if it is to Disneyland Paris! I just want to have the glittery ears and walk about feeling like a princess for a few days!

GOAL 23.  HAVE A NIGHT WITH MY GROUP OF MATES

This is hard to explain, but I have a big group of friends girls, and boys who have been friends since we were teenagers. There must be at least 20 of us.  We used to each throw a house party, get drunk and have an amazing time. It’s mostly made out of couples with a few of us going out with guys in that group, myself included, but when we get together it’s honestly the best time ever! We last all got together in April, but it’s rare every single one of us is there due to uni, work etc.

GOAL 24. TALK TO MORE PEOPLE

I sometimes get this weird sensation come over me, and I just go into my shell and keep to myself. At work I especially do this, as people I speak to the day before I go quiet and don’t speak to them the next. It’s not that I’m being rude, and I know it comes across that way, but it’s like I don’t want to say ‘Hello’ and get ignored. Does that make sense? I need to stop that, as it’s the one thing that annoys me about myself.

GOAL 25. HAVE A HEALTHY, HAPPY FAMILY.

It’s one I can’t control I’m afraid, but happiness you can more than health. I am close with my family and as long as I know i’m doing my part in seeing them as much as possible and making them happy, that’s good enough for me!

 

What are your goals? Are any the same as mine? Let me know in the comments below.

    I’ll be honest, I’ve never really thought about setting goals like this before, but it’s very intriguing! and now that I’m 20 it seems reasonable. I’d love to be engaged, possibly living in my own house, I’d love a dog (a cockapoo or dachshund), I’d love to be running a somewhat successful blog and more than anything I just want to be happy x

      Yeah I thought I was being a little ambitious but it’s good to have things to try and aim towards! I have a Dachshund and really want another as they are just gorgeous! Thanks for reading, lovely! X

    I’d love to go on a girl’s holiday – it’s so hard to organise one when we’re all different parts of England / Europe! And seeing Demi Lovato live would be amazing, that’s definitely one of my goals too! Swimming with dolphins is incredible – I hope you get to do it at some point!
