And so we've come to the end of being 26!
It was a whirlwind of learning experiences, trying new things, and learning a bit about myself. There is always room for improvement and I think overall, I'm becoming a better person. I never would have thought that as I turn 27, I'd have a business, be in galleries regularly, be involved in events and running them, and I would know so many people.
It's been an absolutely crazy ride. I didn't get to do all the things, but I did a lot of them!
- Save at least 4k for moving
Connect with friends more outside of events
- Finish the #52Selfies Project
Minimize my possessions
- Do one big women's event in town
Visit family more often Take more naps
- Go to another concert
Get another tattooand get my nose pierced
- Have a solo gallery
- Paint a large painting
Be less wasteful Do at least 3 cosplays Look into breast reduction Do things that make me happy, not for money Be less harsh with my body image Learn to say no and do not stress yourself Be free to feel confident in how you look, what you love, and to not be serious all the time Take care of my body and health better
- Take a class
Show more gratitude Try a spa Stop biting my nails Go roller skating again
- Start meditating
- Finish a short story and submit for publishing
- Learn to go running
I have been hanging out with friends more and more outside of events I'm in charge of, I've gone to see my mom and sister more, and am trying to make a more conscious effort to go and hang out with my dad. I think with things slowing down this year and with a new niece on the way, I can keep this going.
Self-care has been big for me. I'm my own worst critic and have had a body image problem my whole life. I've learned to let things go a bit, wear things I love, and take care of myself. I fell off the bandwagon a bit with eating healthy but I'm good to get back on it. And I take naps now! Yay!
I barely got getting a tattoo done at the last minute! We went and got small tattoos last Friday, after our last gallery! No piercing though so it's only have crossed off.
This is the year we not only adopted Leon, but fostered Mae Mae and 5 kittens. I'm very lucky to say we've gotten two of the kittens into new homes and Mae Mae as well who is being very loved right now. Rescuing has been such a reward and I'm so glad these babies are in good homes.
Of course, not everything got crossed off. I didn't get to take a class, go to a concert, or get 4k saved up. I'm barely getting back into writing and yeah, running is a no go for me though I did use the treadmill a few times!
Overall, I did 16.5/27!
I'm proud of myself for doing so much. Sometimes, I need to just cut myself some slack and try something different. Slowly I'm getting the hang of this adult thing it's not as scary as I thought.
Here's to 27!
Happy Birthday to me :)
