25 by 25

One day I was looking through old posts of mine and I came across this 25 by 25 list that I posted back in August of 2012. That feels like an eternity ago and to be honest, I kind of forgot about this list. I thought it would be a neat idea to revisit this list and see how many things I've accomplished. I am 23.5 years old right now, so I still have a year and a half to reach all of my goals! :)

1. Graduate from university  (February 2014)
2. Buy my 1st home - hopefully an old fixer upper  (October 2014- I still love it so much!)
3. Use my creativity more - crafting, gardening, cooking, etc. (Made lots of homemade gifts, planted a garden/plants, etc)
4. Pay off a huge chunk of student debt (Paid off my Student Line of Credit in December 2015, now just for my Canada Student Loans!)
5. Run a 5k (Color Me Rad- June 2013, I think?)
6. Work out regularly and lead a healthier, cleaner life (we go to the gym 5-6 days/week)
7. Do more in the winter months ( in Canada, winter lasts between 6-8 months)
8. Go on at least a one week vacation (Engagement Trip to Alberta- July 2015)
9. Get engaged/married! (Got engaged- June 27th 2015)
10. Grow my own veggie/fruit/herb garden (we did this last year!)
11. Make all homemade gifts for Christmas one year
12. Scrapbook my life and all my adventures
14. Write more hand written letters/cards (birthday cards!)
15. Use social media and technology less
16. Live an eco-friendly lifestyle (cleaning, eating, living) (we recycle, compost, use essential oils, and are trying to cut out cleaning chemicals)
17. Step outside my comfort zone more often (joined a bowling league, teaching fitness classes)
18. Learn to crotchet
19. Go on a spontaneous road trip
20. Go rock climbing 
21. Volunteer my time as much as possible
22. Get into the best shape of my life (physically, mentally, emotionally, socially)
23. Get a tattoo!
24. Spend more time outside enjoying nature (lots of walks, runs, and gardening last summer)
25. Buy a nice camera and document all my adventures! (Brandon bought me one for my birthday in 2013, I just need to be better about using it!)

I achieved 14 out of 25 things on my list so far, which is more than I expected! Only 11 more to go and I have a year and a half. Although, there are a couple things that I'm not as interested in doing anymore such as crotcheting and I don't know about a tattoo.

What are some of your goals?

Now I am off to dare. dream. live. :)
