May 13: GOALS - 35 before 35 (delayed)

I will be 35 in a little over 2 years so these goals are realistic and I am hoping to be able to make them all happen that time. 

35 BEFORE 35

1.     Get a new passport – I plan on doing this as soon as possible.  I have some big plans and it is necessary to have.

2.     Hookah Lounge - this may happen sooner than later. I have gotta go and try it.

3.     Step Class (ole school Chicago stepping)

4.     See Jill Scott in Concert again (she is amazing and I love her).  It would be awesome to see her in Philly and then go to an Eagles game (perfect)

5.     Go to a Eagles game in Philly - long term I want to got at least 10 NFL Stadiums.  I LOVE FOOTBALL!

6.     Host a wine tasting event

7.     Go on a cruise – stamps on my passport

8.     Get involved in a cause (preferably Diabetes in honor of my daddy)

9.     Host a brunch start to finish at my house (garden party) – I love to cook so I want to plan the menu, decorate, make real invitations – the full event (I’m crafty).  I wanna get my Martha Stewart/ B. Smith on.

10.   Build my savings

11.   Attend the Essence Festival and actually attend the concerts

12.   Develop a creative business for myself that I will actually grow

13.   Put a dent in my student loans – That awesomely wonderful  HBCU education is/was expensive

14.   Complete my book(s) and publish them

15.   Move out of Los Angeles again (improve my quality of life by growing up)

16.   Vacation with a man that I love (hopefully but we shall see – this is an entire post of its own)

17.   Start bartending again – I miss it.  I miss the social aspect the intensity and if you don’t use it you lose it)

18.   Stay involved with my Alumni Association (Fisk University) where ever I am

19.   See a Broadway Show in NY

20.   Take a craft class (possibly beading)

21.   Build another scrapbook of something monumental event

22.   Purchase a fantastic pair of Designer shoes

24.   Go to the Taste of Chicago and Essence

25.   Go Camping with all the specialties. I am not really and outdoors chick but I have had some conversations that make it sound fun.  It will be a group outing that I will have to coordinate.  I am getting kind of excited about it.

26.   Learn more about wine and sangria

27.   Start sewing (using the machine that I already have for real – I need to make something good.  My mom has these awesome patterns from the 70s when she made all her clothing.  I admire that about her.  She tried to teach me when I was younger but I lacked interest).

28.   Take my mother and grandmother on a vacation

29.   Road Trip by way a Diners, Drive in and Dives – I love Guy
