There’s just something about March. My birthday, duh! (March 5th y’all!) Okay, that’s partially sarcastic, but I really am excited about my birthday because I’m turning 21! Besides, March has spring break and springtime, so it is definitely a month I always look forward to.
Since this month is special for so many reasons, I decided that I’m going to make it a challenge. For the month, I will be doing 21 different things, sort of like a bucket list, so I can have new experiences and not make everything just about me. Turning a new age means a big opportunity to just do something crazy, but not too crazy of course. So here’s my list! Also, if there’s anything you think I should try, let me know!
1. Do something nice for someone else.
Giving to a charity or even just giving someone a smile, I want to do things for others. Just as long as I make someone’s day better, I will be happy.
2. Visit a new coffee shop.
Starbucks gets boring after a while, thankfully there’s tons of coffee shops in California, so why not try a new one!
3. Go a week without buying anything.
It’s honestly so hard for me to not buy something, so I will really try to not do it! No matter how small, I must not buy anything.
4. Finish an assignment before the night it’s due.
Because I need to stop being a typical college student.
5. Take a picture every day. (So far)
I basically almost do this but not always. Since it is March, I want to take a picture everyday, at least of anything and keep record.
6. Sit down and actually learn a new song on the guitar.
I usually end up bouncing around songs when I practice, so I want to make sure that I at least get a song done and it actually sounds good.
7. Read at least two new books.
I’ve been neglecting reading since I’ve been busy, so I need to at least get two books out of my list this month.
8. Make a new friend.
Because new friends are cool and I want to find new interesting people.
9. Do some spring cleaning and clean out my closet.
Ah, my biggest struggle is letting go of things but I must because I look like a hoarder.
10. Donate my clothes.
Even harder than cleaning my closet. Usually when I clean, I give my stuff to my sister, but this time, I want to donate it and have it worth while.
11. Start watching a new TV show.
I haven’t really watched an actual TV show in forever, so it will be fun to start watching a new series.
12. Keep up my blogging game and read and comment on all my favorite blogs.
February was by far one of my best blogging months, so I want to keep that momentum. Also, I want to keep with up with all you awesome bloggers!
13. Go a week without eating junk food, sweets, or eating out.
Healthy eating is a must and being a commuting college student is hard because sometimes I don’t have time to actually make something and I have to buy stuff, but I’m making this a priority.
14. Discover a new band and go to a concert.
I’m pretty much powered by music and all I want to do is listen to music live. I also just want to listen to new music, so suggestions people!
15. Create a ton of new outfits with the items I already have.
I go through the struggle of thinking I have nothing to wear while I have a closet full of stuff, but don’t we all? I want to be able to get more creative with what I have and see what I can come up with.
16. Forgive and don’t sweat the small stuff.
*Cue Let It Go from Frozen* There’s no reason to get all worked up about things and I do it a lot. So my focus is to just let things go especially since they won’t really matter, it’s a habit I need to learn.
17. Journal constantly.
Unlike blogging, I want to be able to put my daily thoughts on paper and express myself and vent. It will be useful for me.
18. Forget the internet.
Obviously this may be impossible, but staying away from the internet and letting my phone rest is something I really need to do. I want to take more walks and enjoy the people around me and not worry about who is posting what.
19. Visit a new local city and explore.
Since I highly doubt I’ll be traveling out of the country or something, I want to go to a city around me and just discover new places.
20. Do something nice for myself.
Go to a movie by myself, spend a day people watching and reading a book, or buying myself something I’ve really wanted. I just want to take a day and be alone and acknowledge my thoughts and just be peaceful and content finding myself.
21. Have the best birthday month ever!
Given. My birthdays are always eh, so this will be the month, and year for that matter, that will be a good one!
If you have any ideas or suggestions on things I should do, let me know!I definitely hope this month holds a lot of surprises and excitement and I hope I stick with my list. It’s going to be good, I know it!
