I know I didn't manage to finish my list or even being close to finish it but I feel like I have accomplished a lot this year! All in all this was a great year and I had some great experiences!
Green means I managed to do it completely.
Orange means I did some of it
Red means I didn't do it
1. Change schools
I actually managed to do this! I started my new school in September and I just love it.
2. Learn how to write in Arabic
When I was picking what classes I should take I chose to start studying Arabic! I have now finished 1 semester of Arabic classes and I can really say that it is amazing learning a new alphabet and with that such a different language!
3. Learn better French (I am on level B1 now)
Since many of my classes are in French and I have school books that are in French I do feel a bit more confident with my French, I do understand what the teachers are talking about and I am getting a better grip on understanding daily chitchat. I even talk to some classmates in French! That is a big up for me since I am super shy about talking in French.
4. Start a Handmade Shop
This one is orange because I am almost there! I plan on opening the shop in the end of January!
5. Knit a sweater
This one was one of the first one that I accomplished. It doesn't really fit so I might actually take it apart and make something else from the yarn.
6. Find an apartment
Mr. Handsome and I moved into a new apartment in February.
7. Grow some herbs
This actually happened and they survived for a while, we have a half dead basil plant still around that might survive the year.
8. Take 52 outfit pictures
I did take 3 outfit pictures, they can be seen here. I really liked taking outfit pictures and I do plan on starting that again!
9. Lose 10 kg (22 lbs)
My goal weight was 67.5 kg ( 148.8 lbs), I started weighing 77.5 kg (170.9 lbs) right now I am bouncing between 74-75 kg (163 - 165.3 lbs). So, in total I have managed lose about 2.5 kg. I know it isn't a lot but it is super hard for me to lose any weight so I am quite proud that I didn't gain any weight this year. I plan on going on with a healthier lifestyle and hopefully one day I will manage to be in the right weight for my height.
10. Cook 52 different recipes
I did try new things, and next year I will post some of the recipes that I have been developing! Some can be read here.
11. Knit 52 different things
I don't think I have made 52 things but I believe it is in the double numbers. I can't wait to show what I have made when I open my shop!
12. Needlepoint 12 different things
I didn't really start this one, I looked at different things and did some practices but I didn't really make anything.
13. Sew 52 different things
I did do some sewing but nothing really that I would count as one of the 52 things.
14. Write a short story
I did write couple of drafts of a story but like always I didn't finish them.
15. Stop eating milk products
I decided to stop even trying to do this, I love cheese and other dairy products.
16. Set up a workplace for me
This is orange because while I don't have a specific workplace for me (the apartment is way to small for it) I do have a specific place for my yarn and fabric.
17. Take 52 make-up pictures
I did manage to do quite a lot of these! I really enjoy writing about my make-up!
18. Get a bike
I decided that biking in Geneva is just way to dangerous!
19. Visit the East-Cost of the USA
This didn't happen, but I went and visited South of France, Copenhagen and some other places.
20. Save some money (around 2600 chf)
I am on the right path with this matter.
Today I have 142 follower! Yay!
22. Turn this blog into a webpage
I didn't even start this.
23. Stop using shampoo and conditioner
I started this on my birthday last year and I haven't turned back. I love it, at the moment I am only washing my hair with water and it is amazing!
24. Grow a lemon grass plant.
I am super proud of my amazing lemon grass plant! I love brewing myself a tea from the fresh leaves!
As I said before I am really happy with my year! I've started to plan my 25 things before my 25th list and I hope I can write about it next week!
