Recap: 25 Things before 2012.

So I thought it about time to do a recap of this post! It's been more than four months (if I counted right!) since I sat down and wrote this list. Surprisingly, I have been able to check a few off since then, and have been making steady progress on the ones that will take longer to complete. So, here is the revised list, showing the ones I've done!  

So the 25 things I want to do before 2012 are...

1. Graduate from my bachelors degree, apply to do masters
2. Buy a set of Russian babushka dolls
3. Save money for ski trip to New Zealand in July
4. Save money after NZ (try to get bank account to $2000!)
5. Read at least a book a month (if not more)
6. Frame own illustrations and hang on wall
7. Go on a roadtrip with my sister
8. Have a rocking 21st party
9. Make my first quilt
10. Finish previously started projects:
-White scarf
-Autumn cushion cover
11. Get a tattoo for my birthday
12. Plant some colourful flowers in pots
13. Do enough yoga that I become more flexible again 
14. Learn how to make really cool renders on Photoshop
15. Practice Italian again
16. Buy my own perfume
17. Create and sew a really nice dress pattern
18. Go second hand bookshopping (and cross some books of the shopping list)
19. Clean out old stuff at mum and dads
20. Take my sister to estabar cafe in Newcastle
21. Go to an art show/gallery opening
22. Learn how to make different types of origami
23 Buy a self help book
24. Take a crafty/arty class
25. Make a baked dinner for the family 

Now that I can see the list again, I really haven't done as many as I thought...but technically some can't really be finished until the end of the year (a book a month?) so I'm still making progress on them! And some I have already lined up to do when I am not swamped with uni work (hello craft class!)
