Here is my list of 31 things to do before I turn 31 in September 2014:
1. Visit a country I’ve never been to:
Last year this challenge helped to prompt me to arrange a trip to Iceland, so I want to repeat the success this year.
2. Learn to drive:
This is one of last year’s challenges that has rolled over to this year. I started learning and took a bunch of lessons but gave up due to lots of other commitments. I hope to re-start this year and pass my test.
3. Speak at a conference:
I’m due to speak at the Future of Web Design conference in London in April 2014, so this challenge should be in the bag – except I want to be fully prepared and ready for it in good time, with plenty of rehearsals and a good deck of slides.
4. Publish a craft eBook:
I’ve wanted to write a book about making things for years, and I want to do it this year and publish it myself.
5. Eat five a day:
I want to commit to getting my five fruit and veg a day as I know it makes me feel better.
6. Print more photos:
This is another one that’s rolled over from last year, and remains to be important to me.
7. Re-organise my spare room:
Another from last year that half got done and then didn’t. Still needs to be done.
8. Get my hair cut regularly:
I hate getting my hair cut because I hate talking to hairdressers. I can go for six or nine months without getting my hair even trimmed and it makes me look like a cavewoman. This year, I want to get it trimmed at least every three months!
