With my recent birthday I turned 34. I look back and think where did the time go? How come I haven’t gotten anything done? My life goals are constantly changing. I’ve never really written anything down. I just make a mental note and cross them off as I go along. Of course nothing really gets finished because I am not holding myself responsible for them. I decided to keep an ongoing blog diary of 35 things I want to accomplish by 35 (in no order). Each time I accomplish one of these goals I will create a new blog post and how I did it. So here’s my list.

BEAUTY VIDEOS
  1. Take a vacation outside of the US.
  2. Lose 45 pounds.
  3. Have a permanent resident in NYC. (right now I am there but not really there?!)
  4. Save and keep $1,000 in my bank account.
  5. Attend a basketball game.
  6. Buy an iPad.
  7. Meet a celebrity and have lunch/dinner with them.
  8. Get a full time writing gig.
  9. Run 3 miles.
  10. Visit 35 historical places that I have never been before.
  11. Learn another language (or at least start).
  12. Watch a play on Broadway.
  13. Build a family tree and learn more about my background.
  14. Attend a fashion week outside of the US.
  15. Sponsor a trip to NYFW for a high school student.
  16. Completely rid my diet of red meat.
  17. Attend a concert.
  18. Volunteer at a homeless shelter.
  19. Read a book by a Nobel prize winner for literature.
  20. Create a website featuring my writings and artwork.
  21. Pay off 3 bills from my credit report.
  22. Host a bloggers event.
  23. Take photographs and hang on my walls.
  24. Take a picture with President Obama.
  25. Purge my closet.
  26. Learn salsa and dance the night away with my friends.
  27. Learn to swim (don’t judge me!).
  28. Ride my bike for 3 miles.
  29. Watch a ballet.
  30. Go on a cruise.
  31. Learn how to bartend.
  32. Invest my money.
  33. Ride a horse.
  34. Get a tattoo (to cover this one I have now = yuck!).
  35. Treat my parents to a fancy dinner.

    I like this list of goals that you have and how not all of them are beneficial to only you, like number 15. Oh and I'm totally with you for number 27, I really have to learn to do that too!
