After turning 25 a couple weeks ago, I had this idea to come up with a list of 26 things to do before turning 26. I'm at a point in my life where intention is becoming increasingly important to me and I want to have a productive year. On my 26th birthday, I want to look back at all the things I set out to do and see that I accomplished every single thing on the list. I'll come back to this post as I accomplish things and make note of my progress and the completion date. If I feel like something on the list is no longer important to me or needs editing, I'll change it. So without further ado, here's my list of 26 things to do before turning 26 next October:
Read 26 books (1/26)
Organize my closet and get rid of all the things I never wear (see: capsule wardrobe)
Send 12 handwritten notes
