This week, I want to talk about goals.
With a lot of changes going on lately, it's starting to really sink in that I'm a grown up. I'm old enough to be changing from one full-time w/ benefits job to another. Old enough to have a roommate moving in with her boyfriend. Old enough to have to seriously consider where I want my life to take me.
So where do I want my life to take me?
Well, I know I want to move closer to my family at some point. But beyond that, I don't really know.
I don't really know what my dream job is. I really don't.
But what I do know is that I want to start getting serious about making goals, and accomplishing them.
So this week, I want to post about 1 goal each day. Really give it some thought, and discuss how I'm going to make that goal happen.
And I'd love it if you shared some goals with me! I could always add to the list.
So here we go:
Goal # 1: Cross off at least 2 states by the time I turn 24.
I never really properly introduced it, but I have this thing called the 50 State Challenge. I want to visit all 50 states in my life, because from what I've seen so far, every state is so unique and different. Each state has so much to offer, whether it's culture, beauty, or just cool ass accents.
So how am I going to accomplish this? Well, I turn 24 next June, so that gives me about 9 months to plan trips to at least 2 new states.
These are some of the ones on my list:
**A good friend from work is moving to Colorado. And while I'm sad to see her go, I'm so excited that I can visit her and cross off a state on my list!**
**I've heard amazing things about Portland, so definitely planning a trip to experience the amazing-ness first hand.**
**Seattle is on my to-visit list. Pretty much the same thing that I said about Portland applies here.**
**There's talks about coordinating my very first blate to meet this girl IRL. If all works out, I could not be more excited for that possible adventure :)**
And there we have it folks, goal #1. Get my butt out there and start crossing some states off my list!
