23 Before 23: Update #3

Saturday 12 July 2014

To be honest I have been lacking some serious creativity recently. So with that in mind I thought it was about time that I had another look over my '23 Before 23' list, and see how I am getting on!

Lose Weight:

This has been on my goals list for as long as I can remember. Even in secondary school I was carrying a little extra weight, I was pretty happy with how I was back then, just wanting to lose a few pounds. Now however my weight has gotten out of control. At university I put on 2 1/2 stone over three years! YIKES! I'm pleased to say that the number on the scales is finally moving in the right direction. I've been on a diet for a month and a half, and I'm pleased to say that despite a few shaky weeks, I have managed to lose 9.4 Ibs so far. Currently I'm wanting to lose 48.8, including what I've already lost, so I only have 39.4 Ibs to go! I'm hoping that by my birthday I will be at least half way there, if not almost done. If you're wondering how I'm losing weight, I'm planing to start posting a little more about it soon...

Complete all the Xbox Games I own!:

This one is severely important, as I am terrible at splashing out money on video games that I never complete. I'm pleased to say that I am definitely working on it. I recently completed Alice Madness Returns, which I actually bought on the day it was released! Also I've had a big clear out and traded in a lot of my games, but Tim and I have also recently bought more for the Xbox One... I'm trying OK? I am currently enjoying playing Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare on the Xbox One... It's basically Call of Duty, but with cute characters that make cute noises, that you can dress up!

My current list of games to complete goes as follows:

  1. Dead Island: Need to pick this one back up to be honest!
  2. Skyrim: This one is going to be a long term game, considering how long it take me to complete one quest, but I am still working on it.
  3. Tomb Raider (remake): Haven't even started it... and I bought the special edition of this second hand on Amazon not long after the release, this one is definitely my next venture!
  4. Dishonored: Again I haven't started this and I am ashamed because I pre-ordered this, and also forked out for the special edition!
  5. Assassin's Creed: Black Flag: 31% complete, I took a break from this when our Xbox one had a meltdown and we were waiting from our brand new one from Microsoft, that is actually what spurred me on to complete Alice. I'm loving this game, I'm very loyal to this series!
  6. Thief: Haven't even started this. Tim and I both wanted this game when we got the Xbox one and neither of us have even touched it yet, I'm playing AC, and he is playing Metal Gear Solid.
  7. Murdered: Soul Suspect: I traded in my HDPVR 2 at CEX and we had £60 of store credit to burn, and we both thought this game looked interested. Neither of us have started it, due to the same reason above.

Find Out What I want to do with my life and stick to it!:

I have finally decided what I want to do with my life, and now I am just waiting to have the funds available to implement my plan. I don't want to give too much away, but more will be coming on this soon!

Start Saving Money:

I am pleased to say that since having my full time job I have managed to save money every month! My first lot of savings has already gone towards a holiday with my friends, back in our uni town of Aberystwyth, this is happening in August! The rest of the money I am currently saving is going towards my other ventures in August (it's going to be a busy, BUSY month), including Summer in the City and my boyfriends birthday! I'm pleased to say that I only have one payment left on my car also, so that money will also be saved after next month. The only thing left to pay off is my laptop, and that is happening end of August, then I'll be free to save for the next big thing... Myself and Tim's one year anniversary!!

Do Something For Charity:

I finally did something for Charity!!! Last Sunday I completed the Race For Life, and in doing so, managed to raise £149, a whole £49 over my original target! I managed to complete the race in 45 minutes, which considering I was doing a mixture of running and walking, I was really happy with. Once I crossed the line I got a little bit emotional to be honest. I know it's silly, but I was just so proud that I finally managed to accomplish something like that...

So there you have it! I have completed another goal, and made a good start on some others! That makes 4 out of 23 completed, and 11 others have been started, this is a serious improvement on last year. Let me know in the comments how you are getting on with your yearly goals!
