someday i swear


  • i will buy an old, old victorian home that needs renovated in the historic district of whatever town i decide to live in and fix it up myself. 
  • i will keep my room clean for longer than three days.
  • i'll raise four kids and we'll dance around the living room together, read a dozen books before bed every single night, go on family road trips across the country seeing absolutely everything there is to see, wear matching socks, go out for ice cream on friday nights, and be the weirdest family on the block. oh, and i'll love them more than absolutely anything in the world.
  • i will learn to make my own coffee perfectly; not too watered down but not too strong, either.
  • i will publish something. anything. 
  • i will become an every-single-day runner (the biggest reason i'm going to do a half marathon).
  • i will purge my closet of the dresses i don't wear.
  • i will spend less time on tumblr.
  • i will learn to stop talking so much (just kidding, probably never).
  • i will photograph a wedding.
  • i will be able to look him in the eye and not see the person i used to know.
  • i will learn to wear my glasses to class every day.
  • i will ask someone out who i think is lightyears out of my league.
  • i will be able to openly admit i love oprah and her shows still make me cry.
  • i will quit pretending rory and lorelai gilmore are real people.
  • i will meet taylor swift again and tell her that her "red" album came when i needed it most (and 'we are never ever getting back together' was a sign from the heavens quite literally the day it came out).
  • i will get a "B" in organic chemistry.
  • i will live in seattle for at least a year of my twenties.
  • i will learn to be able to appreciate the good and the bad, bitterness absent.

I really love your blog. Also, this made me look back in my archives and I realized I have actually reached a lot of my goals since college. You'll be able to look at some of these in a few years and say the same thing :)

Shelby said...

this is amazing! such good goals! couldn't agree more about "we are never ever getting back together" coming out at the PERFECT time! Seriously listened to it on repeat, and jammed out like 100 times a day for a week... ok maybe more than a week. I might still do that... I have no shame! I also totally agree with the living in Seattle for a year in my twenties. Kind of my biggest dream right now.

why is it so hard to keep a room clean? it never lasts more than one day.

I love lists like these. Can definitely feel you on keeping your room clean and the Oprah confession, haha!

I love this list so much. I seriously think I'm going to start writing things like this because they inspire me tremendously every time I read them. I think you're growing in the best way possible and I believe you can do anything you set your mind to girl. go for it all and never look back!

This is a great list of things in its entirety, but the one that got to me the most was "i will quit pretending rory and lorelai gilmore are real people". I've been told since high school that I look/act like Rory so this is particularly noteworthy to me. I can't wait to see you reach all of your goals (except maybe the one I mentioned, because then I might have to stop pretending to be Rory).
