Hey everyone,

I turned 19 this week and if I had to shortly describe the past year, I would say it SUCKED. So I wanted to make a list of (little) things I want to do to make chapter 19 in my book of life better than the previous one.

so...
Let's get started

1. Move

I was born and raised in a small country in an even smaller town that never felt like home to me. So I want this year to be the year that I finally leave and move to a bigger city.

2. Travel to London

For the ones who have read my first article know that I want to visit London ( or more specifically; Blackfriars bridge). So this is (hopefully) the year that is going to happen.

3. Photoshoot with my friends

So. I got a photoshoot from my best friends for my birthday. The only problem is, I want to cry and puke at the same time at the thought of it. The goal is to be able to do this without having a panic attack and be able to enjoy it.

4. Saying Yes for a day

No is something I say to a lot, so I want to see what happens when I do the exact opposite. I've read a book where they did this (yes I know, books are not real but who knows right?) and they had an amazing night so hopefully I will have a day to remember.

5. Give a stranger a compliment

quotes, apology, and compliments image
You never know what someone is going through and a compliment (even a small one) can make someone's day. And in a world where people judge themselves and others, I like the idea of spreading some love.

6. Going to college

Temporarily removed
It's my dream to eventually become a professional stylist and work behind the scenes of movies/tv shows or photo shoots. And the first to reach this goal is going to college.

7. End the circle of negative thinking

I want this vicious circle to finally just end. And maybe this method will work. It is at least worth a shot, right?

8. Overcome my depression

Temporarily removed
Depression is something I am probably going to struggle with for the rest of my life. But I am hoping and praying that I will finally crawl out of this dark hole, come up for air and at least see the light at the end of the tunnel.

9. Donate blood

I think for myself it is a small sacrifice to give something I have enough of to someone in need and help them get better or might save their life.

10. Stop being shy

movie, people, and quotes image
Talking to someone and keep a conversation going scares the bejesus outta me and I completely suck at, let alone if that someone is a stranger. At those moments, all I want is to crawl into a dark corner and disappear. I want to try and work on that and hopefully be able to meet more people and expand my friend group ( god knows I need it).

11. Sleeping under the stars

something about the stars has always seemed so magical to me and I want to take the time and enjoy them for one entire night.

12. Taking pictures

The thought of seeing the world in a different way fascinates me. I want to be able to capture the beauty that surrounds me.

13. Getting my drivers license

I have fear of failure. And if I think too much about the tests I get an anxiety attack. However, I know that I am gonna have to do it at some point to gain more independence.

14. Dancing in the rain

What can I say? I love dancing and I love rain. Simple as that.

And last but not least
15. Be able to genuinely smile

I can't even remember the last time I was actually happy. So hopefully this year will give enough reasons smile again.

These are just a few of the things I want to do this life year.
If you've liked it, there might come a part 2.

Let me know what's on your bucketlist.

Much Love,
Destinny
