22 Before 22

Happy Fall y'all! Today marks the beginning of my favorite season of the year. And no its not because of the Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I mean please don't take my blogger title away from me when I say I HATE the taste of pumpkin. There is just something about fall I love. To me fall feels more like beginnings then spring, probably because that's when school starts and you start over with a clean slate. Now that I got that out on the internet let's start the actual post. 

Yesterday while I was sitting in my film studies class (p.s. we still haven't watched a good film in that class) I realized that it was September 22nd which means it was exactly six months until my 21st birthday. So, I decided to create one of those x before x list. Because everyone's doing it, duh! So, I've come up with 22 things that I want to do in the next 18 months. 

I've broken my goals up into 7 different cateogories and they all seem somewhat obtainable as long as I close out of Netflix and and get off my butt.

1. Spend a weekend in NYC
New York City has always been my happy place and I just want to wake up one morning and be in New York City!

2. Go on weekend road trip
I feel like it would be so cool to drive up to New Hampshire or Vermont with my friends, stay in like a log cabin or something and just hang out. No phones allowed! 

3. Go on Vacation with Friends
You might wonder what the difference between that in the top thing. But when it comes to vacation I'm thinking more then a weekend, more like Spring break!

4. Start Looking at going to or actually go to Europe.
I have always wanted to go to Europe but I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon. I do think that looking into a trip and start saving for one is plausible.

5. Hold an Internship
 Although I don't think I'm going to graduate on time, I do know that I need to start looking for internships. So, its time to start looking and actually have one. Plus I can wear all kinds of cute business clothes.

6. Look into different careers and start narrowing down what I want to do
Since Changing my major I have absolutely no clue what I want to do with my life but I'm planner and want to at least have a few possible fields to look into post grad life. Cue the mental break down sequence now.

7. Work on finishing the novel I started writing.
I in now way think that being an author will be the only career I will ever hold but I have been working on a novel since junior year of high school and would like to continue working on it and maybe one day get it published because I love it and maybe someone else will too!

8. Get on the Dean's List

9. Have a good idea as to when I'm going to graduate
Since changing my major I realized that I am more then a few credits behind and most like won't be graduating in May of 2016 like planned but I do want to know about when I'll be graduating by the time I'm 22.

10. Hold another leadership position on campus
I loved being a secretary of club last year and right now I don't have room on my plate to be a student leader but eventually I would love to be able to do that again. 

11. Build my youtube and blogging audience
No, I don't believe that the number of views matter but I would love to make friends and learn more about other people through these to mediums.

12. Create a New Blog Design
I recently bought a blog design program and now want to be able to design my own blog and use it for myself.

13. Meet a Blogging Friend in Person & Make More Blogging Friends
Yes, I do know Natalie in person but I can't wait to make more friends and meet some in person.

14. Bring Mama Judy out to dinner on my own dime
I have never actual brought my mom out to dinner and I would love to do that for her after all the things she's done for me in the past few years.

15. Set Up a Budget
I want to be able to handle my money when I'm older and if I do that I should start he habits and practices now!

16. Increase the money I have in savings
The money that I have in savings is money I will have one day when I get married, buy a house or whatever else I might want to do in the future.

17. Look for Healthy new recipe to eat 
Got stay up on the health and take care of myself.

18. Train for and run a 5K
I've always wanted to do it but I suck at running!

The Future:
19. Take More Pictures
I already take a lot of pictures but I want to take more so that I don't forget anything. And one day when I actually can afford it again I can scrapbook everything!

20. Do research on where I want to move when I grow up
Even though I love New York City I have no clue where I want to move when I graduate. I always knew I wanted to leave my home state and maybe I'll just let the fates decide or maybe I'll know exactly where I'm going post grad.

21. Start saving for my future bull dogs
In love that is all I have to say about this

22. Create all sorts of memories
Enough said!

And that is all the things, if not more that I want to do before I turn 22. What are some of your goals?
