Revisiting My Travel Goals

November has been such a hectic month. The weeks seemed to pass in a blur, and I can hardly believe 2016 is about to end. This month, I’ve had my first job fair, the launch of our recruitment website (it’s if you’re looking for a job!), my 3rd month as an employed person, and a whirlwind of other to-dos that has gone and left my table buried in piles of paper.

So now I’m interrupting my sleeping schedule and my not-so-constant posting about our backpacking trip because I just realized there’s only 38 more days before I turn 21!

Back in January, I wrote a list of goals that I wanted to achieve before I turned another year older. Let’s see how many items I’ve crossed off that list!

  1. Pack at least 2 days before a trip
  2. Don’t stress over the smallest details
  3. Use rubber bands when packing
  4. Get a new travel backpack
  5. Snorkel more often
  6. Climb a mountain
  7. Davao
  8. Finish the 37-day SEA trip uneventfully
  9. Find a travel-funding job
  10. Finally get around to writing about past [food] trips
  11. Add to magnet collection
  12. Add to postcard collection
  13. Don’t delay travel journaling
  14. Read a book per trip
  15. Make new friends 🤔 (pretty hard)
  16. Stop buying souvenirs for everybody
  17. Be more aware of my environment
  18. Get a passport holder/cover
  19. Equip self with a digital baggage weighing scale
  20. Start a travel fund jar

12/20! Not bad at all.
