Letters From Sevda: November


Letters from Sevda is a feature in which I write down my current thoughts and reach out to you in a more personal way. I want to take you along with me on this journey I am on.Β 

I feel like I am at a point where my life is just stagnating right now. I want to move forward but am not sure of how to do so. I struggle to try the next step because I am afraid of falling. This November I want to change Β that. I will start applying to my top choice of colleges and take charge of my life.

Because of all these thoughts that have been bottling up inside of me I decided to give the Day Zero Project, a challenge to try to achieve 101 goals in 1001 days, a try.

Inspired by this project I want to try my own personalized version called 30 in 365 in which I will tackle my 30 goals and try to live life to the fullest. I will update this list each month adding pictures for each achieved goal.

My challenge starts NOW and I want to finish this list before I start my studies next fall. Here are my 30 in 365:

  1. Do Volunteer Work
  2. Get Accepted To The University Of My Choice
  3. Get A Polaroid Camera
  4. Spend Hours In An Old Book Shop Exploring
  5. Attend An Open Air Movie Screening Of A Classic Movie
  6. Achieve My Fitness and Health Goals
  7. Watch A Musical/Ballet
  8. Celebrate My 20th Birthday
  9. Write A Letter To Myself To Open In 365 Days
  10. Visit Paris Again (Maybe Disneyland?)
  11. Learn To Make Proper Crepes
  12. Watch The Sunrise And Set In The Same Day
  13. Admit That I Was Wrong About Something
  14. Get A Meaningful Tattoo
  15. Adopt A Dog
  16. Pay Off All My Debts
  17. Design Clothes For Myself
  18. Swim with Dolphins
  19. Read A Book In Spanish/ French
  20. Go To An Outdoor Concert
  21. Take A Class (Language, Art)
  22. Go On A Roadtrip
  23. Try A New Recipe Each Month
  24. Visit Another Continent
  25. Kiss In The Rain
  26. Watch A Meteor Shower
  27. Leave An Inspirational Note Inside A Book For Someone To Find
  28. Learn How To Skip A Stone Across A Lake
  29. Make A Wish When Seeing A Shooting Star
  30. Make Money By Doing Something I Truly Love

I am really excited since I feel like this will help me move forward and make me happier after all. Did you ever try anything similar? How did it go?

Get inspired!

XO, Sevda

    That’s a great list :) And I think you know the “secret”: once you write such list down, some of the things can happen even without you consciously making them happen. I wrote a month ago a list of the things that I would do if I had only one year left to live. A week later, I booked myself a trip to MΓΌnchen. And then, when I showed the list to my friend over a tee, she said “well, you can already cross this off”. What? I have forgotten that it actually was on the list!

    I wish you to successfully complete your challenge. Keep me in mind in case you need anything, I’ll be happy to help.
