27 x 27


Last year, I joined the birthday bucket list bandwagon. I have always loved making yearly goals and resolutions, but I realized that I love them so much more when they correspond to my birthday – a day all about me! 😉 When better to do some reflecting and figure out what you would like to accomplish during your next trip around the sun?

So! Here is the list of 27 things I would like to do before my birthday next year:

  1. Update kaciedesmond.com
  2. Revamp blog layout/design
  3. Run the numbers and make some big self-employment goals
  4. Become fluent in Spanish
  5. Volunteer at the art museum
  6. Invent three new traditions
  7. Go kayaking in the bioluminescent bay
  8. Organize/host a girls weekend/trip
  9. Catch a wave
  10. Take a Puerto Rican cooking class
  11. Learn to salsa dance
  12. Blog twice a week
  13. Explore town and find a favorite coffee shop
  14. Try stand up paddle boarding
  15. Go to a baseball game
  16. Finish the office
  17. Run 275 miles
  18. Drive a convertible
  19. Doodle/sketch/draw for at least an hour every week
  20. Create a signature cocktail
  21. Get our photos into albums
  22. Research grad school (is it worth it? take GRE?)
  23. Sign up for a “fun” class/lessons
  24. Explore the caves in Rio Camuy
  25. Complete five sewing projects
  26. Dream/plan our next adventure
  27. Finish paying off my student loans

This year is about tiny moments and big dreams. It’s figuring out what celebrations and holidays look like when we’re away from home and family and weather. It’s diving deep into island culture and soaking up life here and now. It’s digging in and doing the work and chiseling away at my definition of self employment. Let’s do this, 26. I feel like I’ve been waiting for you.
