24 Before 24 Results {Vlog}

A Happy Friday to one and all! This morning I sat down and looked through my monthly reviews from the last year and updated my 24 before 24 challenge list so I could share the results via a vlog.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to be doing the 25 before 25 challenge this year, but I’ve decided to throw some more fun challenges in the mix, like dancing in the rain 25 times, or introduce myself to 25 people with “Hi, my middle name is Joy.” Of course there will also be some “serious” ones, like maybe doing 25 sit-ups each day for 25 days in a row, or read 10 books about the writing craft.

So, here’s where y’all come in! Last year you gave me some great ideas for challenges I should do, and I’d be delighted to get more ideas from y’all. Serious, silly, fun, interesting, or just plain crazy, I look forward to hearing your suggestions!

Here are the 24 challenges I’m going to try and accomplish before I turn 24 on September 30th, 2016.
