I've seen this page on a few blogs and I thought it was a fantastic idea. I've decided that I want to complete my own list too. 

I'm in need of some new challenges at the moment so why not set myself some new goals? 

Some aims are going to be more achievable than others but that was what I liked about other people's lists - they were not only just personal and that I think that they were challenging and that made me really think about what was important to me and what I wanted to achieve.

I have until April 16th 2015 to complete this list which was started on today, 19th July 2012.

Anything that I have completed will be struck through and blue in color with the date that it was completed.
Anything that I am in the process of completing will be in this light blue color.

So here goes... Wish me luck!
