12 Before 2012

Image via/text edit by pinkazaleaparadise
Recently I've felt like I've been running around in circles and not really accomplishing anything.  Does that ever happen to you? In order to motivate myself and to also encourage some self-satisfaction, I compiled a list of 12 items that I want to complete before 2012 begins. That gives me about four and a half months from now to accomplish them (not in any particular order). For accountability, here she blows:
  • Re-read the entire Harry Potter series
  • Have an afternoon outing by myself- Go out for lunch and a movie shamelessly solo and enjoy it!
  • Finish the in-class portion to my final year of University 
  • Put $500 away for my “someday” fund
  • Lose my final 20 pounds for a total weight loss of 75 pounds
  • Get professional photos taken 
  • Go to an antique flea market (like Aberfoyle) for an afternoon of inspiration and unique purchases
  • Bake a pie from scratch (pie crust, filling, and all!) without Mom’s help
  • Make some major decisions about where I want to be next year with my career (this obviously will be an ongoing process, but I want to have a semi-concrete idea about my plan by the end of this year)
  • Invest in a few high quality wardrobe staples (i.e., a pair of leather shoes, a structured handbag, and tailored blazer or jacket) for pleasure and profession 
  • Get crafty! Make home bracelets like the ones here, a necklace like this one, a DIY dry erase board, and other goodies that I come across in my travels (cough, cough Pinterest)
  • Attend a cultural event (like a symphony or a theatre production) ... and get dressed up! 

Yes, yes I did include re-reading Harry Potter... what of it? :) I will include updates on here as I tackle these headfirst, one by one! xo
