22 before 22 - UPDATE

The other day, I got the following notification on my phone: "6 months to My Birthday". SIX MONTHS!?! There did the other 6 six months since my last birthday go!? It feels like it was just yesterday!

I'm not sure you can remember but I shared a list of 22 things I wanted to achieve before turning 22, which I named ... wait for it ... 22 before 22. How original is that? I know, I know... And since we're half way through the year, I decided it was time to do some catch up and see hoe many of them I have fulfilled already.

1. Visit a new country
I visited Holland (Amsterdam and The Hague), Germany (Cologne), Czech Republic (Prague), Hungary (Budapest), Poland (Krakow and Warsaw) and Luxembourg (Luxembourg).
2. Carve a pumpkin for Halloween
3. Beat someone at pimpon (legitimately)
4. Get a t-shirt for Pangaea (read what pangaea is here)
I already have two. Yay!
5. Bake a perfect batch of cookies
6. Make nut-free brownie. (My cousin is allergic to nuts and has been begging me to make her some for years now)
7. Learn to say no
8. Blog every week
I think I'm almost there. Yay for me!
9. Knit myself a beanie
10. Stop biting my nails
Almost there!!!
11. Be able to do a lutz and a loop on the ice
I'm really close to doing a decent loop!
12. Create a new tradition
13. Get to like beer
14. Go to a musical
15. Surprise someone
16. Stop failing my courses!
17. Create a playlist that I could play in public without having to skip any songs
18. Get a C2 in English (which is pretty impossible, but never stop dreaming)
19. Make my own sushi
20. Go to a movie premiere
21. Carve something into a tree
22. Become a 22-year-old that wouldn't disappoint my 20-year-old self

  1. This is such a great post, something I have always wanted to do but never actually made time to sit and write a proper list. This post has inspired me so I am going to try and make one today! I can imagine how it great it will be when you can start scoring stuff out :)

  2. Yes, it's so important to learn to say no! I don't like beer or alcohol in general, so it's ok if you don't either - our preferences are just somewhere else. :)

    1. It's so important and I still can never get it right... Yay! We should start our own not alcohol-lovers club!

  3. I'm 22 in 5 months - I'm seriously freaking out! You have some lovely ideas in your list. I'm constantly making playlists at the moment - there is just so much music out right now. There's so much to choose from!

    Good luck with the rest of your list!

    1. Oh dear! I don't think I'm ready to be 22. That's a lot of years! And thank goodness there is so much music!

      xx Be

  4. This is such an amazing idea! I hope you get to achieve everything on your list <3 I wonder what your new tradition is going to be~ Keeps us updated <3

    She Will Be

    1. I wonder it too. I hope I can come up with something amazing!

      xx, Be || lovefrombe

  5. This is a great idea! I should make a list like this for myself:) I hope you will achieve all of those things :D



  6. I love this post idea, I'm ready to create one on my 24th Birthday in time for my 25th next year! It's such a great idea, tiny little bucket list why not?!

  7. I'm 18 at the end of this year so I may do something similar, seeing as I'll be classed as an adult in december! I love visiting new places too- one of my favourites is Marseille in the south of France. I went there last year and it was beautiful.

    1. Oh when is your birthday? I've never been there. Another place to add to my lists of places I must visit before I die!

  10. I'm 25 & still have yet to make my own sushi. Don't worry. :]
