25 x 25 Revisited.

Early readers (or maybe just reader) of the blog may remember a post I did last year called 25 Things Before 25. About a month ago Jose called me out on not keeping it up to date, so I agreed to update it at least on my birthday.

Now I am 22, and it's time to see how I'm doing (hint, there's a lot left...). It's only been nine months since I first wrote the list, but there are already things on the list that I really have no interest in anymore. For example, having a published pattern. I'm not a designer, and after playing around with ideas, I really don't want to be. Sorry, but I'll just be focusing on dyeing awesome yarn.

Then again, in the two hours I've been awake and 22 years old, I've decided that this is a good age to be, and I don't plan on having any more birthdays. So now I have forever to finish the list!

25 Things I Want To Do Before I'm 25

2. Buy a house.
3. Visit Europe (Italy again, Spain and London are my main picks)
4. Attend a Sock Summit.
5. Run in a race (I did the Warrior Dash once, but I've never done a road race).
6. Have some sort of garden, or at least some herbs that I don't kill off. I have herbs that are alive as of March 2012.

  1. This is interesting, since I really enjoyed my 22 and 23. I'm now 25 and I think it's quite a respectable age, though thinking about turning 26 is slightly scary.
    Maybe I could do a "30 things to do before I'm 30" :P
