24 Things to do Before I turn 24

In honor of my 23rd birthday, I decided to make a list of 24 things that I would like to do before I turn 24. I’ll mark the completed ones as I go along. So, here goes, in no particlar order..

1. Skydiving

2. Take a pole dancing and belly dancing class.

3. Get published in a national, mainstream consumer magazine.

4. Take a road trip with my girls.

5. Start an IRA and savings account.

7. Go somewhere exciting and really party on New Years.

8. Be an inspiration to girls through my organization, G.I.R.L. [Girls Inspired to Reach high in Life].

9. Participate in Lent [for real this time].

10. Take grant writing courses

11. Grow my dreads to at least armpit length.

12. Have a fabulous, fabulous blog with fabulous subscribers and readers.

Wow! Your list was really inspirational! My 23rd bday is coming up in december, so I will definitely make a list. I can’t lie, I have to steal a few things off your list. I love that you are a dreadhead, hopefully mine will be neck length by the time I’m 24. This blog is ABSOLUTELY awesome, I hope to be the NEXT great thing to come out of H-town because you are on it Girl!

Hey Jamie!

Great list and quite inspiring! I plan on making one of my own, a list for the new year & post on my blog, Lol @ u doing jailtime for the mac…i’ll try to raise bail $ if u run into 5-0, lol, but i’m sure you can get it legally w/o paying an arm & a leg. my friend got one for $600 on craigslist.

oh,yea, yoga is THE way to go for the fit,toned body thing…i’ve always been lean, but never excercised…i’ve been doing yoga & pilates since Jan.. & it produces great great results! You’ll feel good inside, out!

Thanks Jewell! I’ll have to check your blog/list out. And good looking out on raising bail lol.

I’m lean, too, and I exercise a little and do yoga on occasion; I definitely need to get back into it and do some pilates. : )
