Don’t worry, I’ve only added my twenty-fifth goal, finally. I’ve had only 24 for a month and change, and I finally figured out my twenty-fifth a few days ago. And then I achieved it. (I’m making a video about this soon, so keep an eye on my channel).
- Move into my own apartment not with an immediate family member. (Roommates are cool).
- Get a tattoo.
- Run a 5k.
- Attend a group meditation.
- Visit 2 new US cities.
- Visit Europe.
- Finish writing a novel.
- Buy a subscription to Evernote Prime.
Buy a subscription to Spotify Premium. (Student is just $5/month!)(There’s a sale now for $0.99 for three months but it’s only available until December 31!)
- Adopt an animal.
- Attend a Phi Sigma Pi conference.
Try out a notebook planner.(March 2013, I don’t like it).
- Complete my master’s degree. (Enrolled at SEMO for Secondary Education).

Get a driver’s license.(June 2013!) Give thank you cards to all my professors at AU in my final semester.(December 2013!) Start sharing short stories on my blog.(November 2014) Share poetry on my youtube channel.(November 2014) Purchase a DSLR camera.(November 2014)
- Instead of birthday gifts, ask for donations to charity.
Have a job I’m proud to display on LinkedIn.(December 2014)
To be clear about that last goal, everyone’s pride is different. Mine is definitely one of my biggest weaknesses, and I see why it’s considered a cardinal sin when I think of how proud I can be. So getting a job that I’m proud of enough to put it on my LinkedIn page and display it to the world, not just mentioned in text messages where I’m always qualifying why I have it, is a really nice feeling.
It seems like the last couple of months I’ve been achieving goal after goal, and taking steps toward other goals, like making a plan for moving out, or creating a savings goal spreadsheet, or deciding on what my first tattoo will be when I finally find an artist I’m comfortable with putting needles and ink to my body.
