So I talked briefly about my angst over turning 30 and it’s happened… here we are. I am going through highs and lows with this. Going from feeling like I am ready to take on the world and I’ve been too hard on myself, to oh my gosh I have accomplished nothing why even bother with the next 30 years. It’s been less than healthy and a little bit immature, but it’s who I am. To focus myself a bit I am going to do what I love to do, make a list. In the next year, I want to accomplish the following.
–Finally get my writing project going. This should have happened a long time ago, things got in the way, but it can’t be put off anymore.
-Put more focus on this blog and it’s growth
-Writing in general. More short stories, more longer projects, more writing in general
-Lose a lot of weight, like 100 pounds.
-Make more progress in not eating out as much
-Grow vegetables and fruits, get chickens for eggs
-Improve my cooking skills
-Significantly cut back on my alcohol consumption
-Start doing more outdoor activities like hiking and such
-Use my gym membership more frequently
-Grow my Twitch channel significantly or consider whether or not it has a serious future or should just be a hobby
-Try to use the upload feature more on Twitch
-Be a better wife to Ben. Do more stuff together, go on dates more, be more supportive
-Work on getting some of my old friendships back and making new ones.
-Become a better dog owner. Better with training and keeping them mentally and physically active
-Do major work with the lawn in the new place. It will likely take more than a year to bring it fully back to life, but we need to start somewhere.
-Be better at saving money
-Make more progress in paying down debt
-Read more. Used to read all the damn time now barely do it.
-Start volunteering again
-Get in counseling again and/or working on my mental illness more positively again
-Work on my own environmental impact. Start to compost, use less plastic, work on food waste, things of this nature.
-Be more positive to myself, others, in general
-Spend more time learning new things
-Reach out to my family more
-Take the time to do things that help with my self-esteem and confidence
-Be more productive in all things
