Making a (good) Start on my 22 before 22 List!

Wednesday 6 February 2013

Today I've been making a small dent in my 22 before 22 list which you can find in the tabs above. I thought that I would share with you how I have began to make a dent in my goals!

5. Make a Scrapbook!

I bought the things to begin making a scrapbook last week when I was birthday shopping in town but today I made a start by organising everything I got and making a title page!

I know the title page is a little boring, but I really like it and I know that they other pages are just going to be FULL of pictures etc. I've called this scrapbook 'The year my life truly begins' because it really is. I'm graduating this year and I'm going to have to settle down and get a job. Scary stuff! The picture on the right is what my bed looked like when I was creating this page earlier. I managed to find some cool bits and pieces in The Works such as the Owl, and the Flowers on the title page. Also you'll see there are a tonne of birthday cards in the picture. I'm going to be cutting out little pieces of those and using them as decoration whenever I can. I've kept the cards that mean a lot to me in my keepsakes box, but these are ones that I won't mind chopping up. I can't wait to make a page with that cupcake card!

7. Watch every film on my 'to watch' list

I opened up my 'to watch' list this morning and to my horror it was severely outdated. So of course I had to make myself a new list! and here it is:

1. The Godfather
2. Casablanca
4.Pulp Fiction
5.The Good, The Bad and the ugly
6.Lord of the rings: 1,2,3
7. The Hobbit
8.Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
9.Sin City
10. Pan's Labyrinth
11. Children of Men
12. Rear Window
13. The Shawshank Redemption
14. Requiem For a Dream
15.Little Miss Sunshine
17.Ed Wood
18.Breakfast at Tiffany's
19. One Day
20. TiMER
21.10 things I hate about you
23.Never Been Kissed
24.Pretty Woman
25. The Ugly Truth
26.Shop Girl
27.P.s I Love You
28. The Time Travellers Wife

You may notice that one of the films is crossed off already! I watched it this afternoon and I will be writing about it shortly! Some of the films on the list are films I've started watching, or ones that I have seen parts of in passing, but most of them are ones I haven't seen at all!

9. Lose Weight

Something that I have been trying to do and failing at for a very long time! I recently purchased 4 exercise DVD's in the hopes that these would kickstart some kind of fitness regime. I HATE going outside to exercise, the entire time I am worried that someone is going to be staring at me and judging me so doing these things in the comfort of my own home is definitely the way to go! I did 2 workouts this morning and I'll admit I almost died, but I'm hoping that they'll get easier the more that I do them!

14. Read 5 Classic Novels

I've been meaning to do this for a LONG time, I have read a few of the classic's when I was in secondary school, but I've been putting off reading them for a long time, for no apparent reason. Anyway I haven't started reading any yet, but today I decided that I would at least make my list of the books I am going to tackle!

  1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  2. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
  3. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  4. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  5. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
I kind of chose these at random from a list, but I do know of them all, so we'll see how this goes!

So that's what I have been getting up to today! Let me know in the comments if you have a goals list and how you are doing with yours!
