Well, I am officially 19 years old. October 9th was my birthday and I am proud to say I have accomplished most of these goals. I have so many more goals for my future and I’m going to try my best to accomplish all of them.
The one goal that I am most proud of myself for accomplishing is moving out of my parents house. Right after I graduated I got a better job, working practically everyday, and moved into a really nice house with my boyfriend and older brother. My parents always said I couldn’t do it and would run out of money and come back home, but it has been about 5 months now and I haven’t asked them for a dime. Most of my friends my age are still living with their parents and I feel so independent.
I went skydiving the weekend after I turned 18, it was unbelievably fun and I recommend everyone to do it.
I adopted my lovely little Gunner about two weeks after I moved out. I went to the Humane Society looking for a cat but fell in love with a small version of Colt, the dog my boyfriend adopted.
Some other goals I accomplished are opening an Etsy shop called Jennifer B Creations, getting myself a credit card, taking my family out to dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings, selling a ton of stuff on Ebay, reading all of The Tail of Emily Windsnap books (I love mermaids), and watching every single episode of Breaking Bad. I have become a nicer person as well. There were times when I wasn’t all that sweet to my parents and siblings but I have been better about lashing out at them. Ever since I moved out, my mom and I don’t argue at all.
I plan to complete the rest of my goals by the time I turn 20 at the latest.
