25 Before 25 Final Recap + Goals

everything else

This is pretty overdue (better late than never, right?) I finished these goals on my 25 before 25 list before my birthday at the end of February..

Finish my personal zine

Too Old to be Angsty

DONE! I’m so glad I finally finished this. I started the zine way back when I was 22 (?!) In the end I realized I just had to get over that hurdle of perfection and feeling like it wasn’t good enough.

Start saving a trip fund

trip fund

DONE! I’m a big believer that things are easier to remember when you have a pretty daily remember of them, amiright? Like, if I just told myself to put away a small amount of money each month into my savings account I probably wouldn’t remember to do it.

I cleaned out an old jar and cut a photo I took of the woods to fit flush up against the jar. I figured the photo could be switched out depending on the season or where you most want to visit next for inspiration.

Plant a garden

cacti

DONE! (ish) When I put ‘plant a garden’ on my list I actually pictured a full on vegetable garden, but since the summer was kind of crazy I didn’t have a lot of time to do that and it quickly passed me by. I knew that I still wanted some kind of garden and succulents seemed perfect. I now have a little indoor ‘garden’ of sorts that I love, so i’m counting this as completed :)

Start a vintage clothes wardrobe

vintage clothes

DONE. It’s a small start! Kind of obsessed with the Levi’s denim jacket.

Sell prints on Etsy

1/2 DONE. I have designed the amount of prints I was aiming for but I haven’t gotten the chance to actually set up the shop yet. I’ve posted 2 sneak peeks already so I didn’t think you needed to see anymore photos of this :)

I missed 7 things which were:

Table at a craft fair . Volunteer somewhere . Learn to surf . Record a demo & design it . Host a potluck . Take a knitting class . Adopt a cat

Not bad. I’m really proud of myself for creating such an ambitious list. The full list and everything I finished is located here!

What i’m planning for this year:

Are you working through a list of goals? Any similar ones?

Share the love!

    I love this list. Although I’m over 30 now, I have had similar goals and interests. Vintage is my new obsession.

    • Amie says:

      Thanks Shauna! I feel like I might have a goal list for every year, as lofty as that sounds. I have a pretty decent collection of vintage housewares and whatnot but am really into finding vintage clothing lately!

    For #16, you’ve gotta check out Mint.com. Totally secure, and you can track checking, savings, investments/401K/IRA, mortgages, EVERYTHING in one place. There’s a mobile app for your phone, so you always know where you stand. It’s awesome.

    My Dad’s a financial advisor, so I kind of love this financial organization stuff. :) And Mint is super easy and helps you set budgets/goals.
