the big 25

June 11, 2009


I like lists.
I live for making lists.

Last year, on my 24h birthday, I made a list of 24 things I wanted to accomplish during my new year. Some were on a timeline, others were simply everyday reminders. My biggest accomplishment was becoming a US citizen in January πŸ™‚

Here are my 25 items (in no particular order) for this year:

  • be thankful
  • keep recycling
  • save
  • work hard
  • learn portuguese
  • be a better emily
  • get a bookcase
  • Harry Potter/New Moon
  • visit Honduras
  • use less
  • be more independent
  • keep spinning
  • consume less junk
  • second chances
  • don’t speed
  • love me
  • keep reading
  • complain less
  • get new frames
  • facial
  • professional massage
  • visit Forks
  • re-work portfolio
  • be happy
  • be more responsible

    You absolutely have to get a facial with Jane Cowan in Portland. She is the very best at what she does and she’s ridiculously fun too.

    Very cool Em! Love the idea… We should all look at birthdays like this. It’s great to see everything you’ve accomplished/how you’ve grown in the last year as well… cheers to the next one!
