I Need Your Help: 24 Before 24 Suggestions ~ Giveaway

My brain has been jumping around during the last few weeks trying to figure out how I can accomplish as much as possible during August on my 23 Before 23 Challenge. I have one month to finish it up and while I’m quite confident in my ability to check off 22 of the challenges (I didn’t start early enough on #8), I just need to have them organized and do it in a profitable way. 

I’ve also spent a minimal amount of time trying to figure out what I want my 24 Before 24 Challenges to be. I really, really like the challenges I had for this year. I felt like they were realistic, helped make my year more profitable and bettered me as a person. Plus, they weren’t incredibly overwhelming and therefore I have been able to chug away at them regularly and not get stuck. 

Since I was thinking about what I want my challenges to be this year, I thought I’d ask y’all to give me your suggestions. Sounds like fun, right? 
And of course I wanted to make it more fun than just “leave your suggestions below” so I decided to host a giveaway along with it. (Yay for giveaways!) For every comment you leave with a suggestion you get to add an entry to the giveaway. 
Y’all can go as wild, fun, serious, crazy, or off-the-wall as you want with your suggestions. Just remember that I only have 12 months to accomplish it! And… Ready… Setty… Go!
