Every year since I was fifteen years old (courtesy of One Tree Hill) I started writing down goals on my birthday that I wanted to achieve during the course of the year. I was never big on celebrating New Year’s Day but felt more so that my birthday was the new beginning for me. The new chance to get things right and unavoidably of course get things wrong. The amount of goals I’d create would relate to the age that I was turning, and I had 365 days to get as many of those goals done as possible.

Last year was the first time I showed the world my list of 26 goals and this year I thought I’d do the same. I was able to scratch off 15 goals on my list of 26 and this year thought I want to hit all 27 I’m hoping to at least get to 20! So here is my list of the 27 goals I have and want to achieve/accomplish at twenty seven years old (Sheesh… I’m getting old!)
