28 things

28 things…

This post is a little different. For a start, it comes hot on the heels of a previous post (even though that was just a quote), and also it doesn’t have a title like usual. I came across a blog that inspired me to make a list of things I want to do. I decided to respectfully imitate (OK, copy) this lovely idea and try and think of 28 things to do before I turn 28. I have 221 days to go, so I figure I can get a lot done in that time. So here goes:

1. Learn to knit
2. Go to Yorkshire
3. Write a short story
4. Make a dress from scratch
5. Learn to speak a foreign language
6. Go to a football match
7. Re-read every Jane Austen novel
8. Make a whole roast dinner by myself
9. Read all 100 books on the BBC Big Read list
10. Learn every single world capital
11. Say yes to everything for a day (not brave enough to do a whole week!)
12. Go to another film premiere
13. Visit my old school for a tour
14. Write a letter to my 40-year-old-self
15. Play rounders
16. Make and wear a custom t-shirt
17. Try at least 75% of the foods on the BBC list of 50 things to eat before you die
18. See the Crown Jewels
19. Learn to play chess
20. Watch every film on the AFI 100 Years…100 Movies (10th Anniversary Edition) list
21. Pull a pint
22. Write a poem
23. Have a guitar lesson
24. Roll down a hill
25. Go line dancing
26. Watch a sunrise
27. Meet a member of royalty
28. Go to Brighton

I think that most of them are do-able, and if I don’t manage them, I shall just have to recycle them into next year’s list, as this will become a regular thing. I shall need help, so anyone that is willing, please let me know!
