5. Complete 18 random acts of kindness
6. Surprise someone with an unexpected gift
7. Write a thank you note for someone who won't expect it
8. Put a video on Youtube
9. Make a playlist of the last year. 10. Have 20 followers on my blog
11. Write a letter to my future children
12. Complete the '30 Days of Pictures' project (which I will explain in my next post)

18. Go without chocolate- I failed at this one! 

I have 10 things left to do, and 20 days to do them in. Yay! Wanna see me stuff those marshmallows in my mouth? 

And on a completely different note... I've been thinking a lot recently about this blog. I am really trying to make it a success, and I know that it's not really working just yet, but I am absolutely over the moon about having 21 followers! 

Every single time I notice that I have another follower, I feel like doing a happy dance, no lie. And comments? Well they really do make my day. So I thought maybe you could do something for me... Maybe? 

I would really really love it if you'd leave a comment to let me know that you're reading. I want to know where these random views are coming from.

I want to know you. :)
