18 before 19

I made this pretty picture thing and I'm like seriously SUPER proud of it. Yup. Like junping-up-and-down-and-bouncing-off-the-walls-proud. Don't laugh at me.

I first read about this kind of list on Delightfully Tacky (which is an amazing blog!) and loved the idea. I always wanted to write one, but never found the time. Thanks to my lovely Christmas break, I found some time! Yayy. So here's my 18 before 19 list. I've got until my birthday, October 4th, to accomplish these things. Wish me luck. ;)

1. Do something creative every week. (It's easy to get all caught up in schoolwork and life and never do something creative)
2. Exercise for 20 minutes at least 2 times a week. (Preferably 3 or 4 times)
3. Paint my fingernails once a month. (I love painting my nails but last semester I barely ever did)
4. Go to bed by 12:30 on week nights. 
5. Make a butterfly. (Haha, this one needs some explanation...check out this website:
6. Go to a Renaissance Faire (sounds like so much fun and awesomeness)
7. Write a fan letter to Natalie Portman (she's one of my favorite actresses)
8. Draw a self portrait (I did one a looooong time ago, but it was terrible...)
9. Make a ray gun (of steampunky epicness)
10. Write regular blog posts
11. Work on homework during the afternoon so that evenings are free. (Next semester I have a lot of freetime in the afternoons that'll be perfect for working on homework)
12. Make a vlog. 
13. Learn to play Don't Stop Believin' on the piano. (Just because I can. And it's an awesome song)
14. Write movie review blog posts.
15. Raise my GPA (Not because my GPA last semester was bad or anything, but because there's always room for improvement)
16. Drink at least 64 ounces of water. (half your weight in ounces = healthy amount of water to drink each day)
17. Make a budget. 
18. Improve my photography/take more pictures.

What do you all think? Can I do all this before October? ;)


  1. Neat! Cool picture. =D

    Wow, you're supposed to drink that much water a day?! Whew...


  2. 6. I know some people that go to those....
    16. I won't be able to find you because you'll be in the bathroom all the time! Maybe that's your plan... >.>

  3. @Hannah: I know, it sounds like a lot doesn't it? But after a while you get used to it. :D

    @Kim: Some people like you? ;)

  4. This list is totally, totally you. I was just thinking earlier today, when I saw one of your posts on Facebook, that you should visit a Renaissance festival, too.
