26 Things I want out of my Twenty-Sixth Year.


          T-minus five days until I am officially over the hill. Over a quarter of a century will be gone. May 8, 2017 will come and go and I will be 4 years away from being Thirty. Holy Crap I am so old. Ok, maybe I am being a little over dramatic, but where does the time go? I remember turning thirteen, then eighteen and twenty-one as if it were yesterday. I remember still depending on my mother to do everything. I remember being young and care free with absolutely no responsibilities. Now, there's barely any time in the day. Is time going by faster?

Year Twenty-five was a crazy roller coaster of many ups and many downs. I learned so much about myself. It was an over all pretty awesome year. I want year twenty-six to be the year where I figure myself out one hundred percent. I want year twenty-six to be my year. I'm going to make it my bitch 😂!! There are so many goals and things I want to accomplish and do, but below I'm just sticking to 26 of them. Lessssgo. 

One. Fall in Love. 
Not just any old kind of love. Real love. I am a hopeless romantic, and I have had a few serious relationships where I believed they were the one, but it turned out differently. I want to fall head over heels in love with my best friend. 

Two. Focus on myself.
That being said (the falling in love part), I'm not going to whore go around looking for it. I am going to focus on my needs and my wants. I want to grow more as a person and bring out my full potential. If that love part happens then it would just be an added bonus. 

Three. Travel More. 
This is self explanatory. I love traveling. Even if it's just a mini weekend getaway to the middle of Florida. I just want to travel. Anywhere and everywhere. I'm starting off strong too. The day of my birthday I will be on my way to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. I am so excited.

Four. Go Sky Diving. 
I am such an adrenaline junkie. I love anything that goes really fast. The faster the better, but I'm not such a fan of falling. For the last four years, every single time my birthday comes around, I always say I am going to sky dive. This year, year twenty-six, I pinky promise that I will. 

Five. Become more active and fit. 
If you know me, you know I go through stages where I'll love the gym for a week, then hate it for months. I need to get my shit together. Being another year older, my metabolism is much slower, and the weight piles on quicker then it sheds off. I need to start going to the gym more, eating healthier and start focusing on my body. I know, easier said then done, but I need to for my vieja (old lady) sake. 

Six. Income through blogging. 
I have been blogging since 2011. With countless blog switches and deletions. I finally have gotten the blogging knack. At least I like to think so. I want to stop waddling along like a penguin in the blogging world and start making some sweet cash from this thing. I love it so much, and I would love to make a little side doe from doing something I love. Honestly, who wouldn't. 

Seven. Be rolling in mula. 
Ok, so not rolling in doe, but more then what I have been able to save up. I want to be well off and steady. Not having to worry about money and be not be living paycheck to paycheck would be a dream. I would honestly want to have more than a four figure currency in my bank account. 

Eight. Career growth. 
Whatever it is I finally decide to do, I want to grow in it. I want to make more income from it and I want to enjoy it. I also want to have more then one source of income. 

Nine. Learn to Cook.
I got you with the basics. I know how to do mac & cheese, steak, rice and beans, pasta, and ground beef. Boom!! The basics lol. But I want to do some fancy stuff. Like all those cute minute videos on Facebook and YouTube by tastemade. 

Ten. Drink less. 
I can't drink like I use to. I'm not 21 anymore. Don't get me wrong, I rarely ever get hung over, and I can out drink a sailor, but sometimes It's just not as easy to get up the next day and just go. My liver is now five years older...

Eleven. Be selfless. 
I have always wanted to help out people, but I never know where to start. Year twenty-six, I am going to be more selfless and give back to my community and help out those in need. 

Twelve. Have newer experiences. 
I want to try food I normally would've never tried. I want to meet new people, listen to different music, learn a new language. I want to stay out of my comfort zone and try new things. 

Thirteen. Explore Miami.
There are so many places and things to do that I have never been to or done. I have lived in Miami my whole life, and I want to see everything my beautiful city has to offer. 

Fourteen. Go back to school.
No but seriously. I have been talking about it for years now. I only need five more classes to graduate. That's one semester and I am done. I need to get my act together and just go back to school. 

Fifteen. Build Relationships. 
Year twenty-five was another year where I lost a few friendships, but I gained many new ones. I want to continue to build these friendships and put effort into them. 

Sixteen. Family Oriented.
I have always been close with my family, but I want to become even closer. My grandma's sister is very sick and is not doing so well. It makes you realize how much you should appreciate your family. 

Seventeen. Live in the moment. 
Life is so short. It can be taken away from you in the blink of an eye. I never want to take any moment for granted. I want to soak it all in and value what I am doing and where I am at. 

Eighteen. Be more spontaneous. 
This also goes with what was previously stated. Life is short. I want to just get up and go one day and do whatever I want to do. If I want to drive to a deserted area, or change my hair color, or jump off a cliff (bungee jumping) that I could just do it. 

Nineteen. Spend a whole day in paradise. 
I want to be on a tropical deserted island with a friend or with someone special and just relax. I love the ocean and being on a tropical paradise just enjoying my day would be like heaven.

Twenty. Go to more events. 
I have never been to a festival. I would love to experience Ultra or Coachella or a paint party. I want to try as much out as I can. 

Twenty-one. Go to the Theater more. 
I really enjoy watching movies. There is a newly renovated theater by my house with couches now and it's so relaxing. I want to attend a movie premier, or spend a whole day movie hopping. How thrilling would that be? 

Twenty-Two. Get Organized.
I am not an extremely messy person, but I am very lazy. I will put off cleaning my room for as long as I can before I have a nervous breakdown and stay up until 4 am cleaning it. I want year twenty-six to be the year where my room is cleaner longer than it is messy. I also want to go through and organize my cabinets that are filled with craft materials or just senseless papers. 

Twenty-Three. Party all Weekend. 
One weekend out of this next year, I am going to spend it completely (how do the youngin's put it these days) "Lit af". I want to spend an entire weekend dancing and celebrating something good in my life. 

Twenty-Four. Date. 
((Conejito listen up)) Find someone and date the fuck out of them. Put your all into it. If and only then if it doesn't work out with that person, then continue to date and repeat until you find the one. 

Twenty-Five. Say "no" more. Say "yes" more. 
If this makes any sense at all... I tend to have my moments where I am super nice and I let people walk all over me. Then there are moments where I am way too mean and I should actually tone it down. I need to find a balance.

Twenty-Six. Pizza. 
Love pizza. Marry pizza. Have a pizza party. A pizza weekend. Travel to all the pizza restaurants I can think of. Try pizza from different areas. Pizza everything. Pizza all the time! 

Here's to year Twenty-Five being pretty cool, and here's to Year Twenty-Six being the best year of my life yet. 

xoxo.
