I know what you’re all thinking, another one of those ‘This is going to be my year’ posts. Don’t worry, it’s not. I’m all for people seeing the New Year as a fresh start, but I’m not one to post my yearly and future activity all in one 1000 character post on Facebook (that’s where the Twitter 140 character rule comes in handy). I don’t think I can even remember what my last years resolutions were, most probably along the lines of I will take up jogging, or I will start going to bed earlier, none of which made it past the 1st January 2014. However, even though I’m not one to stick by resolutions, I am one to make lists. Whether it be a grocery list, birthday present list, chore list, to do list, I worship them. This is the year, I graduate University, turn 21 and move in with the boyfriend. So why not make it one of my most memorable years yet by creating a 2015 bucket list.
1) Visit a new country
I want to go somewhere I’ve never been before, somewhere where not many of my friends and family have been before so I can create some memories there.
2) Read 365 books
I love reading and I don’t do it enough. Which is why I want to have read one book for every day of the year by the time it reaches 1st January 2016 (maybe 5th January 2016 as I am 4 days late on writing this post)
3) Start my driving lessons
I may be 3 years late, but better late than never aye. And if I start, who know’s maybe I’ll even finish driving lessons and pass my test.
4) Go to an outdoor cinema
Just like the movies, literally. On a warm summers night, with blankets and a flask of hot chocolate what could be more romantic?
5) Sort photos into a photo album
Maybe a bit of boring antic on my to do list of 2015, but I don’t want to look back in 5 years time and have to look at my photos on a screen. I want to be able to flick through photo albums and relive the memories
6) Do something spontaneous
I don’t have a clue what this might include, but I want to look back and think I’m glad I did that rather than turning down an opportunity because of something like money.
7) Drink more water
I feel good when I drink the recommended amount of water. My skin looks good when I drink the recommended amount of water. So why don’t I already drink the recommended amount of water?
8) Earn lots of money
It would be so nice to be able to look at my bank account and see a nice healthy figure rather than one that makes me shut laptop at the speed of light.
9) Ride a tandem
Something I’m yet to experience, but I will be equipped with a helmet and elbow pads.
10) Learn the constellations
The night sky fascinates me, who wouldn’t wan’t to know more about our wonderful world we live in.
11) Go surfing
Lets cruise the waves? Totally dudeeeee.
12) Learn sign language
I feel this is language which should be second nature to everyone, and I want to be a part of it.
13) Throw a Disney party
I’m 20 years old and yet to have had a Disney fancy dress party, who even am I?
14) Go Skinny Dipping
Yep, I’ve said it. I’ve never done it, but how can you feel at one with the world until you have been naked with the world?
15) Complete my travels of the UK
I technically have only seen half of the UK due to only ever visiting England and Wales, so nationally I should make it up to experiencing the whole country right?
So there you have it, 15 challenges for 2015. Some of the things on there may seem a little out there for the year but you’ve never heard of dreaming small. Happy New Year!
