24 Things To Do Before 24

It’s crazy to think in two years time I’ll be in my mid-twenties, with my adult life ahead of me, which is kind of crazy and a little terrifying. I never thought I would still not know what I what I wanted to do, or the fact that I’m not living in my own home at the moment nor am I in a full time job that I thoroughly enjoy. Up until this point I thought I wasn’t doing something right and I was a failure because I wasn’t doing anything that I thought I’d be doing but honestly I’ve come to terms with how everything has been going. I can honestly say I am genuinely happy with everything, and have learned to not be too hard on myself. Live and let live.

I decided to do a post like this mainly for my benefit, because I think it is so important to write down your goals for the year to come and what to work on in the year or years to come.

  1. Go back to school to get my Masters
  2. Buy a home (or start looking)
  3. Travel to Greece
  4. Spend a birthday in Vegas
  5. Travel more often in general
  6. Find a full time job in the meantime of going back to school
  7. Bake and cook more for my love
  8. Have a substantial savings account to buy a home
  9. Start a more healthy lifestyle & work out more often
  10. FINALLY see a Broadway play in NYC
  11. Learn how to make macaroons
  12. Learn more about Wine
  13. Be consistent with my blog
  14. Start more consistent fashion posts
  15. Read more frequently
  16. Invest in a better theme (which will be sooner than later)
  17. Live and let live
  18. Learn that it’s okay to not please everyone
  19. See my love’s Childhood town in NY
  20. Increase traffic to my blog
  21. Buy more makeup & have the storage for it ( Ie. Ikea Desk)
  22. Buy a new Lens for my camera
  23. Start a Youtube Channel
  24. Not let my anxiety get in the way of doing things in life.

I know many of these things may be little goals but I believe little goals are easier to achieve in the long run. I’ve already achieved so much and only want to grow within the next year, and having these few written down will hopefully make them set in stone!  I’m so excited for the road to 24 and bigger things for my blog <3 Hopefully some of you will keep up with me and my journey.


What are some goals you have for the next year? Let me know! I’d love to hear your goals <3

    These are such good goals and I don’t think they’re small at all! You say you don’t know what to do with your life but you have managed to write a whole 24 things that you DO want to do solely in the next year so that is an achievement! And number 24 I imagine will be the biggest one of all when you get there, and you WILL get there 🙂 very interested to follow your journey, good luck with it all! ❤

    These are some major goals. I am also beginning to consciously save to buy a house- renting is beginning to suck! I’m excited for your road to 24!
