Getting through ‘addiction’ and 30 things I WILL do before I'm 30 | Editor's Letter

February finished quicker than most boys do, and it left me thinking, just how fast is life going to past me by?

I’m aware how insanely deep that is but it’s true. I’ve accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish by the age of 22 (aside from owning my own dog and having my own flat, so basically the two key things...) but what more do I want out of this short life?

Whilst most will scowl at the thought of someone in their twenties panicking about ‘being old’ and ‘ageing’ hear me out. I don’t want to live a wasted life, not even for a second.

Sure, I love nothing more than getting absolutely twatted with my friends on a night out, laughing so hard that everyone stares in the pub garden, waking up in a strange location and getting that ‘guess what you did last night…’ text from my friends. But it’s starting to deter me from the accomplishments I set myself to achieve by the time I’m 30.

I’m not ready to write about it and I highly doubt I ever will be, but the last six months have been a challenge and while I put on a front, I slipped back into self-destruct mode. I consume my bodies worth in alcohol for however long it takes until my drive for success snaps me out of it. I’ve always had an addictive personality but thankfully, my addiction to work has so far always been the stronger contender.

So, with the end of February nearing and being two months into the year still being a hot mess it was time to pick myself up.

When I was 15 I was in the same position as I am in now. I made a list of things to do before I turned 20, I then stayed focus and did them all. So here’s to the next seven-year challenge…

1.  Get my very own flat.
2.  Have my own dog/cat.
3.  Have a column in a magazine.
4.  Purchase a sports car.
5.  Towards the end of my twenties, sign up to foster teenagers in need.
6.  Get fitter, both for vanity reasons and for stamina and strength.
7.  Learn a second language.
8.  Visit America.
9.  Work my way up the career ladder to senior reporter, and then up to an editor as much as I can.
10.  Pick a charity each year and donate to it.
11.  Take more photos.
12. Be the most amazing godmother/aunty to my friends’ kids who plan on breeding before 30.
13.  Go on a messy girls’ holiday.
14.  Get better at photography.
15.  Read 100 books (easy).
16.  Improve my English vocabulary further.
17. Get on the property ladder, ie mortgage.
18.  Have a boob job reduction.
19.  Write a book. I have three I’m currently working on, so we’ll see…
20. Swim in a cage with sharks around me.
21.  Go fully vegetarian/maybe vegan.
22.  Add to my savings account every month.
23.  Do something that literally scares the sh*t out of me, ie bungee jumping.
24. Visit a third world country and help by teaching English/how to write/read, if even for a month.
25.   Take as many impulsive weekends away/holidays as I can.
26.   Always be someone who my friends and family can rely on.
27.   Put into my retirement fund as much as I can so I don’t have to retire at 69 as the Government likes to inform me.
28.   Run the London Marathon.
29.   Become a connoisseur in coffee.
30.  Throw myself the most outrageous 30th birthday bash.

For someone who predominately writes about sex and relationships it is actually not a priority for me and hence, didn’t make the cut. However, writing about it pays the bills. So, for 31 I want to promise myself that no matter how controversial I’m seen, how scary appearing on TV to talk about it may be, no matter what people think of me, the fear that boys won’t see me as ‘the wifey’ type, I won’t give a single f*ck.
