I am super excited to be sharing this with you, and if you follow me on Instagram you got a sneak peek last week. I must admit I was really struggling to come up with 25 things to do the year I am 25. I googled, I asked in the bullet journal Facebook group and really looked deep inside to find 25 things. Some are big and some are small. Some is a do-it-once-and-tick-off and some are more advanced. Without further ado, here is my list.
- Volunteer with animals
I really want to do some volunteer working with animals. I have wanted to do this forever, but never put it into action. However now I will do something about it!
- Practice being charitable
I already give money automatically to the Norwegian red cross each month, but I want to do something more.
- 25 days without watching tv shows
I am perfectly capable of admitting I watch too many tv shows. And there have been days where I did not complete my to do list because I watched two shows instead. Please note this does not include dinner movies with my family.
- Read 25 books
Because, why not…
- Stop a bad habit
Something everyone should work on really.
- Bullet Journal the entire year
I love bullet journalling and I would love to see how it will evolve during the course of a year!
- Run 10k in under 1 hour
I ran my first 10k probably 4 years ago. My fastest is 1.15 ish so my goal is to be under one hour. NB: this is also one of my yearly goals.
- Go for a 8 hour hike
I love being in the forest, and would love to spend an entire day hiking with my dog(s) and my older sister is welcome to join.
- Do archery
When I was in high school I did archery as an extra curricular activity and I really enjoyed it. Plus it looks super bad ass!
- Go camping
Again, this is spending time out in nature.
- Learn self-defence
Honestly, everyone should know this!
- Get a better posture
I have a really bad posture. I am 179 cm (almost 5´9) and I have always been very self-conscious about my hight. Therefore I have slouched shoulders to make myself shorter.
- Look after my body
Both eating healthy and exercising goes under this category. As well as mentally and spiritually… and all that stuff
- Catch a fish, prepare it and eat it
I have done part one and part three. But I have never really gutted a fish. In the summer we have rented a boat for a week and hopefully I am going to be able to complete this then.
- Grow a plant from a seed and keep it alive
I have a three-four year old lemon plant which I grew from a seed. I really like the experience so I am doing it again!
- Forage and preserve something
Last year it was blueberries and blueberry jam. This year it might be the same, or something different. It will either way be super fun!
- Learn how to bake (really good) bread
Because buying from the store is just laziness. And baking is so much fun!!
- Buy fresh flowers each month
I love fresh flowers. But I do not have a boyfriend / special other to buy it for me. So this year, I am buying fresh flowers each month. Just because I love it that much.
- Go 25 days without spending money
I am not a big money spender, but I do spend money on cheap stuff (hello eBay). I want to be more purposeful with this and have a no spend 25 days.
- Get dropped off somewhere and find my way home
I dream a lot and a common occurrence is me being lost and trying to find my way home. Spoiler alert: I never do. So I am taking this concept and applying it in real life. Hopefully this will help me in my dreams.
- Travel by myself
Becoming more independent.
- Go dog sledding
Because, well, why not! Supercool!
- Write and publish an e-book
My goals since forever.
- Declutter my life
I have too much stuff and have a hard time letting go. I want to live a more simplistic life.
- Love myself
We should all try this.
Bonus: Work on my level 10 life.
I hope you all enjoyed this list, and hopefully got some inspiration to create your own. I am super excited to be republishing this on my 26th birthday and letting you all know how I did / will do!
