24 Things To Do Before 24

For the past two years, I have written a list of activities that I would like to achieve before my birthday the following year. Rather than setting New Year’s Resolutions which I know I will likely fail before the end of January, I prefer to set myself goals for throughout the year to keep myself accountable. You can read my 22 Things To Do Before 22 post here or my 23 Things To Do Before 23 post here or keep reading for this year’s challenges.

  1. “learn how to parallel park” lmaaaooooo this is me every year. I am seriously the worst when it comes to parking, especially parallel parking… So I just avoid it when I can😂 I’d rather walk 15 extra minutes to my destination than try to find a parallel parking spot closer to it.

    Personally, I’d really love to start photographing more for myself again, I do a lot of photo and video work for my job but have been too busy to pick up the camera in my free time and just go out and take some pictures xx

    • I am actually comforted by how many people have said they cannot parallel park either. It isn’t just me!! Our new car can actually parallel park itself so going to practice with that first and then parallel park myself (hopefully).
      You should for sure! I feel like we all get caught up our jobs and can neglect our hobbies if we do not take an active effort to maintain them. xx

  2. Your goal posts are always so freaking amazing!!! Probably one of my fav ones you upload, I love your motivation and I have every bit of faith in you that you will achieve them! Also I have been driving for well over a year now and I still struggle so much with parallel parking, its so hard?!xxx

    • Haha thank you! I always have such high expectations of myself in the new year, hopefully that motivation continues throughout the year!
      I cannot believe how difficult it is like it should be easier!! Thankfully there are sensors on our new car which should make it a bit easier. xx

    • Thank you! Not sure how many of these I am going to be able to achieve given the current circumstances but hopefully I will be able to postpone all my plans for later in the year and smash them all out!
