50 Things UPDATE

Hi everyone! This post will be a bit different from my usual ones. I was looking at my old blog earlier (Let's Call It a Journey - I stopped writing on it when I created this blog.) and I found this blog post from when I was 11 years old. It's a list of 50 things I wanted to do before I turned 13, and I've just crossed all the things I did off the list. I'm happy to say I did 36 things! Now I'm nearly 15, I might make a new list like this at some point.

  1. That's great that you have crossed off 36 things! I should make a post a like this! :D It's always interesting looking at how we use to think and what we wrote/blogged about when we were younger! :P

    1. I was just reading through my old blog (which I think I had since I was about 7) and it's kind of fascinating really!

  2. I'm so sad I'm one of the 14 things you didn't get to cross of the list, Amber! If I make it onto the next one, I'm sure we can make this happen. Happy to work on it! sophia xxx

    1. Haha you would definitely be in the next one. :) xx

  3. I'm so sad to be one of the 14 things you didn't manage to cross off the list, Amber! If I make it onto the next one, I'm sure we can make it happen. sophia xxx

  4. I am SO doing one of these lists! I remember reading this post on the blog, hehe :D It seems like forever ago *happy sigh as she looks into the distance*

    I'd love to meet Cathy Cassidy, she seems like such a lovely person. You wrote a novel?! That's so cool! :)

    1. Haha it was back in 2010 or 2011!

      Cathy is lovely, you should try to meet her one day. I've met her three or four times and she's great.

  5. I need to do one of these! So disappointed you didn't get to do 48 though... :( Oh well, congrats on doing 36 of them!
