As of yesterday, my 28th birthday is officially one month away!
This is both alarming and exciting. I’m not necessarily intimidated by the prospect of being 28, but then again it’s like, woah, I’m going to be 28?! You know?
Anyways, in order to welcome in age 28, I’ve decided to do a few challenges.
I did some deep diving in the Pinterest universe—and made it out alive, so 28 is already looking good—and I’ve found a few that look both fun and doable. Plus, they’re lists, which if you know anything about me, you know I love the hell out of some lists.
Some people might say giving yourself a hefty amount of tasks to check off in the month before your birthday would be stressful, but I have never been one of those people. Thus, let the lists commence!
I got one for exercise:
I got one for drawing—which should really be a challenge since I don’t/can’t draw, but hey, maybe 28 year old me draws. Who knows?
I got this one that will give me something to write about each day
And this one for happiness, because it just seems like a logical way to welcome in another year of life.
Is this a bad idea? Will these challenges end up stressing me out more than building me up? Have I made a grave mistake by committing to them on the internet rather than just keeping them to myself?
But all I can do is my best. The whole point is to get 28 started with a bang.
Not bangs though, I don’t think I (or my sister) could do those again.
