2012 And Beyond!

So I turned 24 this week and realized that before I know, I would be in my 30's and wondering where the years flew. Taking cue from DI's post a couple of months back, here's my to-do list which I need to strike out in the years to come, definitely before I turn 30!

  • First the unavoidables, lets get done with them first - Fall in love, get married. :P
  • Travel. A lot. Europe, South America, New Zealand, South East Asia, South Africa, who knows maybe US also!
  • Visit all the major cities - New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Chicago, Berlin, Sydney.
  • Travel. A Lot. In India.
  • Seriously start thinking about writing a book.
  • Watch Wimbledon live, in the stadium and see Federer squash Nadal. If this doesn't happen in the next couple of years, I might have to change the Federer to Djokovic.
  • Go to Brazil to see 2014 Football World Cup. Nope, I am not a football fan otherwise. But I love the World Cup!
  • Go for a live in concert of atleast 2 or 3 favorite bands - Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Eagles. Any of these will do!
  • Dance. Atleast once.
  • Fall in love with a city that is not Delhi. #UncharacteristicShowOfMaturity #Turning24
  • Career! I forgot about that one! :P I don't want to be CEO when I'm 30. I think I found my calling and that's Marketing. I'm good at it, and that's what I want to do for a long time to come. But by the time I'm 30, I hope I'm good enough for people to start wanting to hear me talk about marketing. That'd be more than enough for me!
  • Disney Land. #Turning24ButStillAChild
  • Own a house that looks as homely as Konkana Sen's in Wake Up Sid and as classy as Farhan Akhtar's in Rock On! :D
  • Honda CRV. That'll be *my* car and I'll be driving it.
  • Formally learn to play guitar. I am done fiddling with it!
  • Upgrade my reading list to more mature books - Maybe non-fiction? *shudder* We'll keep this for the later years. I can start when I'm 29, read one non fiction and cut it off the list! #Turning24 #BecomingSmarter
  • I hope I continue my blog till I'm 30 so I can cross stuff off this list!

I think I'll keep this list open and keep adding things to it. This seems so short!
And of course, the pre-requisite for any of this is, that the world doesn't end in 2012. :D
Happy new year everyone! :)



  1. good list
    good luck for for each one

  2. Awesome list. Belated happy birthday :) And yes, seriously start thinking about writing a book. Looking forward to when you'd strike it off the list. :D

  3. Belated happy birthday preeti :)
    Start with going to London this year to enjoy the Olympics live :D
    Good luck with the list...may you accomplish much more than this before you hit the 30 mark :)

  4. An awesome and a definitely achievable list! I think you'll be able to strike off most of the things by the time you turn 30. I'm just worried about the second last point, because I know there's been no lack of trying from your side (I have officially given up trying to read non-fiction) :-)

    Good luck with the list!!
