A Year in Review: Checking in on the 25 in 25

Here is the 25 in 25 list. I started this about halfway through the year, sometime in August of 2010. So I definitely did not expect to get everything done, which is why some of the things were reposted on the 26 in 26 list. But I did accomplish a few things. :-)

25 in 25
  1. Grow Closer to God - While spiritual growth can be hard to see. I definitely know and can see some growth. Being an intern at Mill Pond Church has totally grown me and stretched me. I needed that.
  2. Learn sign language - I bought The Joy of Signing at the end of the summer and started going through that a little bit. I will work on this more and try to begin practicing it.
  3. Find a full time job - Well, not what I expected, but I am currently in an internship with Mill Pond Church. Technically it is part time, but it has become my life now.
  4. Read a non-fiction book a month - Of the 7 months, I think I only missed 2. Not bad for this one.
  5. Write some devotionals
  6. Lead a small group - I teach my first lesson with my high school Connect group next week.
  7. Visit a castle - Researched a few, found some surprisingly close, but haven't made it to any. Maybe when spring/summer comes.
  8. Go on a mission trip
  9. Go on a date - Well, I have a boyfriend. We've been long distance the whole time, but I still can cross this one off.
  10. Pay off one of my loans
  11. Get on track with a budget - I definitely need to work on this area, but I am more aware of things now and have a sense of where I need to go.
  12. Get my first apartment
  13. Buy a car
  14. Get health insurance
  15. Finish my “Legacy Drawer” - I have worked on putting this together, but it is not finished.
  16. Finish Philippines Journal - Another that has been started but not finished.
  17. Get recipes in order - I am not sure what the best way for me is to go about this, but I have organized a lot of my recipes and have begun trying out the new ones.
  18. Write devotionals - Somehow this was on here twice. But needless to say other than writing notes and ideas down, it hasn't gotten done.
  19. Work on OT Curriculum
  20. Work on NT Curriculum
  21. Put Scripture together with my verses
  22. Make at least three collage frames with the Scripture/verses
  23. Finish reading all of Tracie Peterson’s books - I didn't read all of them, boy are there a lot. But I probably read close to half of them. Figured out they all have similar progression while the characters and incidents may be different. I'm happy with what I read that I could cross this off.
  24. Put together a dream book of things I want to do (aka Bucket List) - Yup. It's posted on the blog somewhere.
  25. Make a list of habits I want to start and make a plan to start them - Monday Meanderings and my bucket list helped me work on this.
