But where does the time ran off to though.
2016 has just been flying by. It was February two minutes ago. Next thing I know we are three months down the line!
This post is inspired by exactly that… time!
I feel like given how quickly time is flying I’ll look back and wonder what have I really achieved this far.
As my high school teachers used to say on a daily basis ”time lost cannot be recovered”
Hopefully you’ll also get to know me a little better from what I share in this post.
In about 6 months I’ll be turning 22. I haven’t really achieved anything in my stature as a 21 year old. Ooh wait, I have.
Starting this blog! Whoop Whoop! Which will remain my biggest life accomplishment, well maybe only getting married can top that (But that’s not in the cards at this point In my life).
Initially I meant to come up with 22 things I wanna achieve before 22, but then I thought to myself why not come up with a four year Bucket list.
So on this 14TH DAY OF May 2016. Here we go
A collection of stuff to achieve from today, towards my 22nd birthday in November, as well as my 23-25 year.
lets dive in.
25 things before 25
1.Learn how to sew.
Loool , well of course the first thing at the top of my head was fashion related.
I have been wanting to do this for some time now, but I just haven’t acted on it.
I would totally love to work on my own clothes. Make a cloak, tulle skirt, maxis, or maybe even a jumpsuit from scratch.
Throw a couple for DIYs your way .Yey!
In regards to this, I think I might take up fashion design at some point in the near future. But for now I’m going to focus on working on my Journalism degree.
Become a better Christian. (Spiritual Growth). This one for me is the most important one. I really want to work on this one. I’m not perfect, I slip up sometimes. I start reading my bible but I end up slacking at some point. Any ideas on how I could work on this one?
Do something nice for my parents. I honestly couldn’t be more blessed, I have the best parents a girl could ask for. They might be super strict (lord knows). Sighs.
But I wouldn’t trade them for anything/ anyone in this world. My dad is honestly the funniest most sarcastic person I know. He has a way of livening up any situation. My mum on the other hand is a sweetheart, and a fashionista as well .Hey mum I guess I know where I got it from. By doing something nice for them, I mean basically getting them something special as a way of saying thank you for giving me so much and bringing me up right (I like to think I turned out pretty okay). I’m yet to figure out what exactly I want to do for them but I’m going to work on it. Thank you God for such amazing, super support full parents
Exposure. No better way to grow ones craft.Currently working on making this one happen sometime this month. Okay, so as you already known (given the fact that this is a fashion blog), I’m very passionate about fashion. It is for this very reason that I wouldn’t mind working in a fashion oriented place every day! Any day! It would be pure bliss. When you super passionate about something you are willing to give your all to it without feeling drained, at the same time you are open to learn. With that said, I have so much to learn about the fashion industry all that’s missing is a person/brand to learn from. If you know of any Kenyan based fashion magazine, fashion brand looking to hire please let me know in the comment section or you could always email me.(firstname.lastname@example.org )
Blogging tools of trade: Working on buying a camera to improve my consistency on the blog. Hopefully I can achieve this one ASAP!
6.Up my makeup game. : I’ve done fairly well pulling off simple make up looks for my blog, for my everyday life as well. But I’d love to learn more about make up. An area I wasn’t really keen on till two months ago when I suddenly had this make up obsession and started watching 100+ YouTube videos religiously .Ha-ha this phase has been going on for a while , proud of my makeup collection so far and eyebrow drawing techniques(still working on perfecting that wing though), hopefully I’m going to get better at this with time . Who knows might even start a beauty segment on the blog. Go me!
7.Cooking classes.: What can I say, I love food! No shame hunnie! But in as much as I love food, I’m also very picky. It wouldn’t hurt to up my cooking game a notch. I find food to be an art, probably explains why of late I’ve been obsessing over Miss Mandi’s bomb recipes. Which leads me to the next thing on my list.
8.Gain some weight! : I know! I see you giving me a weird look. In the world we live in skinny is a good thing (probably explains why people give me weird stares when I say I want to gain weight). Also explains why it’s so darn hard to find articles on how to gain weight. I’m not the anorexic typa skinny but my body isn’t where I want it to be.
Now moving on to the next thing on my bucket list
9. Take up swimming. :So the other night I was watching one of my favorite comedies. BLACKISH (which I highly recommend if you haven’t heard or watched, if you looking for a good laugh this is it). So anyway, Andre was basically trying to prove his white neighbor wrong, reason been, the analogy that black people can’t swim their bones are too dense! I was like ouch!
10.Beach shoot! :While we are on the topic. How about I take those swimming lessons out for a test drive. While I’m at it strike off one other thing on my list. Beach shoot bebe!
(Which I’ll be sure to share with you guys later on the blog)
11.Road Trip! : I’ve wanted to do this for the longest time. The further away the destination the better.
Now, all I have to do is Find Company.
Maybe my cousins or a bunch of my friends. We’ll see.
12.Adrenaline Rush. : Bungee jumping here I come!
I actually want to do this for my 22nd birthday.
13.Proper birthday celebration: So here’s the thing, I haven’t really had any proper birthday celebrations. It’s usually just a bunch of texts from friends and family. I treat myself to some comfort food and that’s pretty much It. But since I already have the bungee jumping plot for my 22nd, I think I’m going to hold a party on my 23rd birthday. And most definitely my 25th to celebrate having ticked off all 25 things on this list. Would be nice to blow out 25 candles, have a small intimate party with close friends and family.
14.Charity work : Cause I love doing something nice for somebody else.
What human doesn’t like doing something nice for someone else? (Don’t answer that)
Throw kindness around like confetti!
15.Travel : Apart from that one road trip. I wouldn’t mind a proper travel plot. Flight. Hotel. A whole other country.
Another reason I want to do this is for the purpose of my blog.
I want to give you guys beautiful places to add to your travel bucket list.
Build my brand.
Learn a new language. As it is right now I am fluent in 3. I tried picking up Chichewa from a friend, at some point I tried French as well,but um yeah can’t construct a fluent sentence in either of the two.
Face my fears : Anyone that really knows me, knows how scared I am of hens/ roosters basically any kuku. I have been from way back as a kid.99% chances that I’ll not follow through on conquering this fear, but let me just add it on here.
19.Develop a culture of reading/ take up writing classes : To nature my interest and love for self-expression through words.
Who knows might even write a book at some point.
20.Be more adventurous : Adventurous spirit, I just haven’t gotten the chance to do much.On my list, surfing, jet ski , police chase maybe lol!
Cause there’s no better point in my life to just have fun. Before I clock 30 where life totally changes and a whole load of responsibilities. Maybe I’ll be a mummy/ wife so yeah .let’s do this while we still can.
21.Work on my socializing skills: I’m simply not comfortable been around too many people.I also want to work on becoming comfortable with public speaking. Especially cause in this line of business I have to sell my brand to potential clients.
22.YOU-TUBE channel. :Cause I have so much randomness to share.
23.An account balance that doesn’t make me want to cry every time I check it. :Cause
Sometimes all you need is 50 million!
24.Driver’s License! :Cause how else will I tick off a police chance from my bucket list. Psshht!
25.My own place: I do sort of have my own place but not ideally my dream place. Right now I’m living in between my parents place (when I’m on breaks from school) and my place in school. I’ll probably tick this one off the list after I graduate.
Making this list turned out to be much easier than I thought it would be.
Hopefully I’ll follow through on all the things I’ve listed on here.
But generally I just want to work on inspiring, and at the same time finding ways to better myself as an individual.
I’m wearing this super cute summer floral dress.
Dress – thrift
I would love to hear from you. What are some of the things on your bucket list .
LOVE. STYLE. LIFE
With love Nimz.
