25 before 25

go birthday cake

So it’s official, I’m 24.

Being in your twenties is such a weird period in your life. I feel like I’m only just getting used to be an adult, but society and everyone around me is making think about all these adult things I’m not ready to even consider yet. Everyone has a plan for kids, a house, and a career but I’d rather just kind of wing it and see how it goes. I feel like planning the big things can make it seem like you’re running out of time. My wrinkles and under eye creases as I like to call them are slowly starting to seep in, and I am absolutely petrified with the prospect of ageing! I thought I’d put together a little list of ย achievable goals or things that I’d like to achieve over the next year. Let’s face it, they are all still super difficult to achieve, but fingers crossed I can handle at least a few…

25 before 25.

Get a puppy or a shelter dog.

Go to Canada.

Reach 5k on Instagram.

See the wild Orcas off of the coast of Shetland.

Write a book/novel or at least plan it.

Start a yoga class.

Gain body confidence.

Learn Spanish.

Stick to the gym for the year.

Knit myself a blanket or scarf.

Reach 5k on twitter.

Keep a journal.

Take a 1 second video every day for a year.

Go back to Elche!

Reach 1000 likes on Facebook.

Save lots of money for a deposit.

Read 30 books minimum.

Get a new car.

Run a 5k…

and then a 10k.

Give up fizzy drinks.

Perfect my skincare routine.

Go to Gleddoch Spa with Steven.

Ride the Jacobite Steam Train aka Hogwarts Express.

Finally go on our 500 miles Scottish Highlands trip.

Love, Ysabelle x
