17 Before 17

17 before 17

Last Friday I turned 16 along with my brothers Seth and Scotty, and I also passed my test for my driver’s permit.

I’ve seen videos on YouTube and other blog posts that are titled “18 Before 18” or “25 before 25” which is basically a list of what that person wants do do before they turn a particular age.  So I’ve decided to compile a list of seventeen things I want to do before my 17th birthday next year.

Because I have just under a year now to finish this list, the tasks are pretty simple things to do and are certainly things that I should be able to complete in a year.

In order for me to keep the list updated, I created a separate page for it.  So you can check out my 17 Before 17 list there and let me know what you think!


2015 Goals

Well, I’m officially late on bringing in the new year, but hey, better late than never, right?

I figure to start my posting in 2015, why not share my goals for the year?  And to clarify, I prefer the term “goals” over “resolutions” because it feels more like an accomplishment when I complete them.  Plus, resolutions are overrated… at least to me they are.

So without further ado… here are my goals for this year.

  • Post at least once a week on my blog.
  • Travel to a new country.
  • Learn 24 new recipes.
  • Try something new.
  • Get my girlfriend a super-amazing present for our 1 year in March.
  • Increase running stamina to 3 miles.
  • Get my permit in May and my driver’s license by December 31st.

That’s about it for me.  There are other things I’d like to accomplish, but I don’t want to overburden myself and end up giving up before I even start.

Happy New Year’s everyone and good luck on your own new year’s goals!
