Wow, I feel old. At the end of January I turned 23, and as I love a good list nowadays, I thought I would put together a list of things I would like to do before I turn 24. Things in this list may not be groundbreaking achievements to some, but I’d still like to get them ticked off before the big two four.
1 . Lose at least a Stone
I’ve never properly tried to lose weight before, so I don’t know how easy I’m going to find it. I’m going to start with a small(ish) target of a stone and go from there.
2 . Change My Hair Until I’m Happy With It
In 2019 I finally dyed my hair brown after being blonde for a long time. I’ve gone back to my natural colour, but I feel like I’m not 100% happy with how it is now. Hopefully I can find something I like before next year.
3 . Visit More Places in the UK
There are so many amazing places in the UK, and I’d like to visit more of them.
4. Have a Weekend Away in a Log Cabin
It’s just cute isn’t it? Who doesn’t want a little weekend away in a cosy log cabin with a hot tub.
5 . Save, Save, Save
Saving money is never a bad thing.
6. Curate a Wardrobe where I Wear More Than the Same Three Outfits on Repeat
I’m not saying that rewearing the same outfit is a bad thing (believe me, I’ve been doing it for years) but I want to have clothes in my wardrobe that I wear more often, instead of the same few things on repeat.
7 . Travel More
Travelling is one of my favourite things to do, and I hope to be able to do some more of it this year.
8 . Be Able to Cook a Meal without Following a Recipe
I’ve been cooking a lot more in 2020, and I would love to be confident enough in the kitchen to make something without following a recipe.
9 . Read a Book
I know big target. In all honesty I haven’t read a book in years, so I’m starting small. It’s bad I know.
10 . Bake Something New
I used to bake something new every month, but I haven’t done that for a while. Now, it’s time to try something new.
11 . Watch More Films
You name the film, and there’s a 99% chance that I haven’t seen it. I seriously need to sit down and watch some more films.
12 . Use My Diary
Remember the Papier hype at the start of the year? Well I jumped on it and bought a diary, and I want to actually use it this year.
13 . Finish Makeup Before Buying New
I have mentioned this before, but I really want to use some makeup up before buying new.
14. Donate to Charity
It’s just a nice thing to do.
15. Visit and Donate to My Local Dogs Home
Ralph has a lot of toys, so I’m sure he wouldn’t notice if we donated some. It’ll be nice to buy some treats too and take them.
16. Up My Blogging Game
I love blogging and I want to continue it and post more than I did last year.
17 . Fill Out More of My Scrapbook
I really enjoy filling out my scrapbook, and I want to add more to it.
18 . Get Out More
As introverted as I am, I want to get out more often.
19. Take My Nan Out for a Day
I love my Nan and would love to take her out for the day; she deserves it.
20. Improve My Fitness
My fitness is pretty poor and it’s something that I need to improve.
I am a hoarder, so I struggle with declutters. It is now getting to a point where not everything has a place to go; which is not good.
22. Learn How to Make Cocktails
It just seems fun, and it should be cheaper than going to the bar.
23. Swap my Fake Flowers for Real Ones
I have had fake tulips in my room for years now. It would be nice to swap them out for real flowers every now and again.
24. Hit 10k Steps Everyday for a Week
This might not sound like a lot for some, but I struggle to stay constant with hitting 10k steps, so this should help with that.
There we have it! Those are 24 Things to do Before 24.
Do you have a yearly bucket list?
