Reviewing my 20 before 20 // My 30 before 30

Friday, July 10, 2015

Last year I shared a list of 20 things I wanted to achieve before I turned 20 (last month). Now I'm back after turning 20 to look at how I did as well as share 30 things I want to achieve/do before 30.

  1. pass my driving test ✓ Completed, see this post
  2. go on an adventure Various 'photo trips' as well as other ones
  3. start going to the gym Let's not talk about this
  4. clear out all my drawers and wardrobe | Kind of?
  5. send more snail mail I did for a while but not done so much recently
  6. go a blog event Nope
  7. visit a new place Technically, I posted it around the time of Edinburgh so it counts!
  8. see another band play live Nope :(
  9. try more food I'd say so!
  10. go out in the countryside A few times!
  11. camp under the stars No camping whatsoever
  12. get out more Yep!
  13. actually get through a good amount of my TBR pile | Half and half tbh...
  14. have a movie marathon Nope
  15. get experience at a design company | I interviewed but didn't get?
  16. write more Not as much as I wanted to but I did some...
  17. have a good night out So many!
  18. create something for the sake of it Since I'm doing a #Create365 I'd say so!
  19. see a show at the theatre Was close to, but didn't!
  20. go to the beach A few times!
So that was my 20 before 20 list... I don't think I did too bad in all honesty! Over 50% were yes's! 

30 before 30
  1. Create a work/studio space that has enough space & store that I need.
  2. Travel lots (at least 5 new countries!)
  3. Try more seafood
  4. Get a job in somewhere away from home (e.g. London, Edinburgh, America, etc)
  5. Have a fully set up blog for #Cbloggers
  6. Go camping
  7. Go to a festival
  8. Live in a home that features one of my "dream home" ideals (cottagey house, bay window, exposed brick/beams, large garden, have my own studio space, large rooms)
  9. Publish something (a book/ebook?)
  10. Join in more exhibitions
  11. Get a tattoo
  12. Set up a website for OhHay! (blog, portfolio, shop included)
  13. Join a yoga/gym class and go constantly
  14. Go on a fun road trip
  15. Take more photos (plus points if on film) and organise/share them in a way that's not on social media
  16. Start cycling to places again
  17. Have an amazing night out drinking with the besties
  18. Get over my fear of public speaking
  19. Do some sort of "extreme sport"
  20. Continue taking classes/learning after (or throughout) Uni
  21. See the Northern Lights 
  22. Travel somewhere by myself
  23. Make my own halloween costume
  24. Have the confidence to go out and order something completely new off a menu
  25. Donate blood
  26. Host some sort of party
  27. Take part in more monthly/yearly challenges
  28. Go and do more 'traditional' makings of things (screen printing, sculpture, etc)
  29. Complete a scrapbook/inspiration book
  30. Yearly goal (before 21): Graduate Uni with Honors
So that's my list for everything I want to do within the next 10 years (holy ****) of my life! What are some things you want to do in the next 10 years of your life?
Also keep an eye out over on my YouTube Channel for a "20 things I learned in 20 years" video that will be out in the next few weeks!

  1. Love this post, well done for getting through about 50% of your 20 before 20! Your 30 before 30 list looks good, I have travelling more on my list and also maybe have another baby or pregnant before I hit the big 30. I'm currently 26 (27 next march) so hopefully I can fit a few things in the next few years.

    Good Luck with your list!

  7. Love this post - and congrats on completing most of your goals. It's always nice to see what people want to accomplish! I did something similar on my blog, and I'm gonna review how far I got in a couple of days.
    Number 24 on your 30 before 30 list made me laugh - but I'm totally stealing that!

  8. This post is so inspiring! Best not to get hung up on the things you didn't do & look forward to the things you have ahead of you like you have done with your 30 before 30! Best of luck achieving them :D
