Things I'm (Hopefully) Going To Do Before 2015

It's hard to believe that we're half way through the year already. I've mentioned on this blog before that I'm not a doer and never have been. My whole life I've been an observer and non-participant but I really want that to change and for my life to be filled with experience and memories so that when I'm 80 I can remember all the things I did when I was young. This is just taking a small step but I'm hoping it leads to bigger and better opportunities and experiences in the future.

  • Gain 50 hours of driving experience
  • Experience the Ekka - we used to go with school nearly every year and I haven't been since
  • Swim in the ocean - I live 5 minutes from the beach and have not been swimming in years
  • Visit my new baby cousin Thomas
  • Go to Byron Bay with two of my best friends for the day
  • Host a dinner party - go crazy with the decor and gift bags
  • Babysit
  • Go to putt putt
  • Ride a bike
  • Go on an Op Shopping day
  • Make a new friend
  • Read 3 novels (1/3)
  • Reconnect with a friend I've lost touch with
  • Finish a screenplay
  • Get started on a Certificate III of Diploma in Children's Services
  • Go to a concert
  • Take a chance by telling someone how I feel
  • Say "I love you" to someone and mean it
  • Buy a record player
Also, thank you to everyone who responded to my latest blog post, I really enjoyed reading your responses and thoughts on the culture of "want" that seems to be so prominent at the moment.  ♥


  1. Definitely all achievable! You go, Erin. xx

  2. I think you will do this things very quickly. And go to the ocean its very refeshing in the summer. I don't live near it but I wish I could.

  6. You can definitely do all of these things!

    Driving hours can be a bitch, but once you get into it, they fly by.
    Lists are the best though. Keep crossing them out :) x
