What I want for my birthday year (yay 25)!

25 is that age where you’re expected to have a quarter life crisis.

I want it to be my best year yet.

Every year as I get older I’m always thinking of what I can do better and I feel that THIS year will truly be the year when I can make things happen (if I’m consistent and put in the effort of course).

Here is what I want for my 25th year.


  1. I want to be in the best shape of my life. I’ve been lazy with running because of work and haven’t made the time, but this year I’m hoping to get back into the groove of including consistent physical exercise in my routine. It’s not enough just to eat healthy and I’ve learned that getting my blood pumping is good for my creativity and energy. I’ll be exploring a mix of hot yoga, kick boxing and running so that I can look better in my clothes, sweat more, be less stressed and clear up my skin. Being mentally fit is very important to me, and it’s time that I put physical fitness on the same level.
  2. I want to study up on business strategies and practices. Whether it’s establishing an LLC or reading up on leadership and negotiation, I want to hone my social skills for business and life. Any suggestions on books, podcasts, etc., please send my way. Entrepreneurship and creative living are topics that especially pique my interest.
  3. Read more books. I’m hoping to read at least one book a month. It seems to happen that way naturally because one week isn’t enough time for me to finish one, but I’d like to read a nice mix of non-fiction and fiction to keep my imagination alive and improve my own writing skills.
  4. Bonus: I want to learn Chinese (Mandarin). I know, I know, it’s been something I’ve wanted to do for awhile. If you know of any good resources or places to enroll- or you’re in the LA area and can speak it and want to tutor me, please let me know!!

As I learn and progress this year, I plan to make more YouTube videos and continue blogging here.

If you haven’t already, here’s my first YouTube video. Don’t forget to subscribe on YouTube and tag along for the adventure on instagram!
