My post for today just popped off the screen at me tonight. For once, I can thank Facebook for inspiration. That rarely ever happens - normally I just blame it for being a distraction. Tonight, I opened it for the purpose of a distraction and instead found that a friend had posted a link to a page titled 19 Things To Stop Doing In Your 20s. Some of my closest friends know how much I like to read advice articles - Writer L even sends them to me via messages at times. I don't very often take the advice in the articles, but I do get enjoyment out of reading them for some odd reason.
Anyways, back to this article that came out of nowhere. The title intrigued me so I clicked into it. I was pleasantly surprised with the advice they gave. And seeing how I'm still in my 20s, I'm going to set out to change a few of these things about myself. I was going to explain which ones I was going to focus on but I figured I'd leave that to your imagination. I may bring them up later - when you've had a chance to judge the article yourself.
In the meantime, this article inspired me to start a new "bucket list" of sorts, since I've accomplished so many of my life goals up to this point. I thought about digging up some of my old ones, but I don't know where I'd find those especially in this mess that still exists in the office area (the rest of the apartment is very tidy though!). I'm only going to focus on the things that are in my control.
1. See somewhere new each year.
2. Finish a novel by myself.
3. Submit said novel to actual publishers.
4. Establish myself with freelance photography.
5. Go to Europe.
6. Get Two to Write back up and going.
We'll keep it simple for now. I'm looking at things that can be accomplished in the next couple of years. I don't want to overburden my goals.
And on a side note, I've already started work towards #6! Revisit the world of Benjamin and Ivy tonight with The Darkest Hour as the prologue premiers at 11:11pm. (If you've read Night's Final Hour, you'll know why that hour was chosen!)
