A year from now

Nov 26, 2012

I will be on the verge of 23. I don't know where I'll be working or living; in fact, I really don't know much about what the next year will bring. But I do know that I want it to be awesome. And awesomeness doesn't just magically appear. It takes work and commitment. It takes starting, not waiting by the sidelines.

I've written 10 things I want to do in this next year. Some easier than others, but all easily do-able. I'll try and check in periodically throughout the year and share how it's going. Accountability is always a good thing :)


1. Open an Etsy shop (and actually sell something!)

2. Fly on a plane (preferably to England, but I'll take NYC)

3. Start a Youtube channel (because I think it might be kind of fun)

4. Buy a DSLR camera (and learn how to properly use it)

5. Finish my bedroom (so close!)

6. Create better work habits & have a proper work schedule (so hard! anyone have any tips?)

7. Be a better friend (and stay in touch on a regular basis)

8. Continue to grow in my faith & live it actively (a lifelong journey, I know)

9. Read more books (and maybe join a book club?)

10. Be healthy (green smoothies, yoga, walking/running, nothing terribly hard)


By starting today, hopefully this next year will be awesome. And a year from today, let's meet back here and see how it went. Deal?



  1. Great! I find the blog and making lists certainly make me more accountable. Good luck and can't wait to see the results!

  2. This is pretty much the same goal list I have! These are all goals I've set for me. Unfortunately, I'm a bit of a procrastinator, but I'm trying. I'm so envious, 23 was my favorite age! I hope you have just as much fun as I had at your age. Honestly, I don't recall having any major goals except the one I set for myself in the 6th grade which was a little over 20 years ago. Your so young, and have so much ahead of you. I wish I had made a goal list like this back then, but I guess it's never too late, huh? Well, good luck with everything, and if you don't get to everything on your list that's okay, you can just try again next year, and keep trying until you have accomplished them all.

    Well, have a wonderful birthday. I'm Sarah, I'm a new follower, and my blog is Skylar Magazine. You are welcome to stop by anytime!


  3. Great list! And I'm sure you will accomplish most if not all your list, best of luck!

  4. Such a great list, Brittany! I think the etsy shop is a great idea for you. And being healthy is always on my list...I need to get back into yoga...right.now. Ha! Being on the verge of 23 scares me. Here's to growing up in God's grace :)

  5. Happy Birthday Brittany, dear!
    This is a lovely list. I'm so looking forward to seeing your new Etsy shop. xo


Thankyou SO much for taking the time to leave a comment! If I could give each of you a big hug, I would :) xo
