Important Blog Update // 21 Before 21 Results

Wow, two posts in one day. Amazing, right? Actually, I’m posting this because I’m switching around some of the info on the header of Noveltea to make room for some new goals and challenges I’m going to have next year. 
First of all, I moved all the Where Dandelions Grow info to the tab that says My Writing. I also took a few moments to update that tab. Next I’m changing my tab that says 21 Before 21 to “Birthday Challenges” so, each year (that I feel like it) I can add a new challenge. (Such as this year can be 22 Before 22.) There will be a link to this page in that tab, then when I come up with my challenge for this year of my life, it will be in there as well. 
So, without further ado, here’s the results from my 21 Before 21 Challenge. Sadly, I didn’t get nearly as much of the list accomplished as I had been hoping on. Still, I’m thrilled with how much I got done during the 20th year of my life. 😉 


{Beginning 1-23-13, Ending 9-29-13 = 279 Days} YES = 13 NO = 8
1. Walk 100 miles (not all at once) {I stopped keeping track, I’m guessing it didn’t happen ~12-12-13}
No
2. Get Where Dandelions Grow published {When I got a chance to get a book traditionally published, I jumped at it and put WDG to the side. I hope to pull it back out at the beginning of 2014. ~12-12-13}
No
3. Host a writing contest on my blog {Compeleted between 2-11-13 through 3-6-13: See it herehereherehere, and here.}
Yes

4. Work up to 1,000 words of quality writing in a 15 minute time period {Completed 3-8-13}
Yes

5. Put marbles (etc…) in a jar that count out until I’m 26 (it’s an inside thing) {Did not do this, although I’m still planning on doing it once we move, which I thought would be before my birthday, but will most likely be early in 2014. I might do weeks instead of days though. ~12-12-13}
No

6. Read 30 non-fiction books {Again, this didn’t happen. I did read/listen/watch a good amount of not fiction stuff though. I didn’t keep track. ~12-12-13}
No

7. Write at least 100 words on my TGS WIP every day {Completed!}
Yes
Yes

9. Go to Hawaii {Completed}
Yes

10. Read 3 books about WW2 {Completed}
Yes

11. Re-write Star Glow {Nope. Again, set aside this project to work on CSotP. ~12-12-13}
No
No

13. Find a solid answer for my JM book {Yes. Pretty much. The answer was ‘no’, not what I was looking for, but better than hanging in there. ~12-12-13}
Yes

14. Get my drivers license {No. Let’s not talk about it…. ~12-12-13}
No

Yes

16. Get a first draft written for my goals for the next five years {First draft, yes. It still needs a lot more work! ~12-12-13}
Yes

17. Read 2 books about Lyme Disease {Completed 2-2-13}
Yes

18. Reach 75,000 words in this years’ journal {I would say in a round about way, yes. Not what I was planning though! ~12-12-13}
Yes

19. Write down amazing things I’ve done, at least 101 things {Completed during the first week of February, 2013}
Yes

20. Track my food for 100 days {Nope! I got to the point that I was eating so healthily I didn’t see the need. Since then I slipped back in my habits, so I’m tracking the food again. ~12-12-13}

    Good job on all you've accomplished! 😀 13 out of 21 is not bad. 🙂 I am learning to drive too… I feel like it's going so slow, that although I am only 19, I will be amazed if I get it before 21. 😉 And I am so excited for you in your book!

    Wow, you got stuff done. I think I hate you. 😉 I'm glad I didn't do a challenge like that because I'd have to have done 55 things before my last birthday in October and I'm just not a doing-things kind of person.

    No”

    When you consider the Bible is separated into 66 books, you may have actually done this one. 😀

    Thanks, Rebecca! And I really wanted to get all 21 done, but so many things came up that I wasn't expecting and I know I made good use of my time (most of the time anyway…) and that sometimes plans have to be switched around. Now to come up with 22 things to do before I turn 22… Oh, and have fun driving! 🙂
