So when I turned 20 last year I decided to write my 30 before 30 list, and it’s taken almost a year to finish it. I think I’m happy with it, so decided to put it out into the universe. Some are very much doable and others are more arty and vague. I normally don’t like set in stone goals, because if I don’t achieve them then it makes me feel shit and a failure, but because I have a whole 10 years to achieve it feels much less pressure. I feel like your 20s is where life stuff really starts to happen and it’s probably the biggest transition period of your life (maybe ever), you go from being a student to a proper adult and although that’s scary, I’m excited for what is to come. The end of my teens weren’t great and I still feel like I’m figuring out who Maisie is now, so I hope that my 20s will bring me a sense of who the happier Maisie is.
Because this list took me so long to complete I have actually achieved four things! I ended my time as an intern and started a proper job with proper responsibilities, I brought my own car and also brought 3 designer handbags in the space of 6 months! (Treat yourself, right?) Earlier this year, up above the clouds in the Sky Garden, I saw the most beautiful sunset over the whole of London and I began to fall in love with the magic of the city all over again.
I wonder what the next 10 years have in store for me, but I’m excited to see.
