Having goals is so important to me because I’m the kinda gal who always needs something to next achieve or work towards. When I finished uni and got a job I felt so lost because I’d achieved everything that younger Bibi had aspired to, it’s such a weird feeling to encounter. So I drafted up a 30 before 30 list but soon realised that’s like 8 and a bit years away (I’m 21, 22 in June), I need something within a shorter period of time! So here we have, my 25 before 25!
1. RUN A 5K
Nah not joking when I say I’m a fat girl in a skinny girls body, I am SO unfit. I can run for about 90 seconds on the treadmill before entering near cardiac arrest so wish me luck with this one.
2. SEE A FOOTBALL GAME IN BARCELONA
I really want to go to Barcelona, and after seeing a football game in Madrid I am so ready for part 2 in Barcelona.
3. CLIMB MOUNT SNOWDON
You may read that and think ??? u ain’t a climbing gal ??? but when I was younger I spent a lot of time in Scotland and my Uncle would take me up some of the hills (with a promise that we could get a can of pop and some crisps in the village pub on the way back down) and it was really fun. I’m ready for a modern day Bibi version which consists of a girls trip to Wales, some climbing, processo and maybe a spa afterwards.
4. SEE BEYONCE LIVE (DONE)
I have done this but this has been on my bucket list since forever.
5. BE PAID OVER 25K
Gals got to start as a girl boss somewhere…
6. SAVE A MINIUM OF 2.5K
I am horrific with money so in my twenties is where I learn to save, and having a target to get to actually seems more serious.
7. SEE BRITNEY SPEARS LIVE
Booked for August 2018, I am SO ready and don’t care if she lip syncs.
8. WATCH AN ENGLAND FOOTBALL GAME
Not in the pub or at home, like in actual real life.
9. HAVE AFTERNOON TEA AT SKETCH
I want to go to Sketch soooooo bad.
10. VISIT NEW YORK
I have never been to the Concrete Jungle! My only trip to America was Miami last September but that resulted in being stranded in Florida during Hurricane Irma so not the best of experiences.
11. BUY MYSELF A DESIGNER HANDBAG
Well this sums me up doesn’t it, ‘save up 2.5k’ also ‘buy an expensive bag’. I’ve already got the Celine and Gucci but the bag collection needs to expand, my future daughter will thank me for it.
12. LEARN HOW TO BUDGET
Lol, I hate adult life
13. OVERCOME A FEAR
I don’t know what fear, but tbh I can’t see myself getting over spiders anytime soon.
14. GO GLAMPING
Lots of fairy lights and processo included
15. HOST A DINNER PARTY
I am a great cook, I just need a great space to be a host
16. EAT SOMETHING WEIRD
Like, Octopus or something
17. GO TO A FESTIVAL
The only camping festival I’ve done is T In The Park which was UNREAL. I need a round 2 but I’ve always been scared that it wont be as good at my TITP memories.
18. LEARN TO SPEAK FRENCH
Like properly, not just Bonjour and the rest being English with a French accent.
19. SEE A WEST END MUSICAL
Can you believe I have never done this! Well, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang when I was like 5 doesn’t count because I can’t remember it.
20. GO INDOOR SKY DIVING
I’m too scared for the real thing, so this will test me first.
22. TRAVEL AROUND ITALY
Random but Italy has a really good train system, and it’s cheap. I’d love to visit Pisa, Florence, Venice, Naples, the Amalfi Coast… list goes on
23. HAVE A PET
I am never giving up on my dreams of having a Sausage Dog, never.
24. HAVE BETTER POSTURE
Lol this one is for my mum. Sitting at a desk 9-5 all day makes you so slouchy! and I really don’t want a slouchy back when I’m older either.
25. SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
I’m not sure how I’ll deal with the cold but I am SO keen to go and see these in Iceland. Alongside having a dip in the Blue Lagoon.
