101 in 1001 II

Achieved

#44: Collect my perfume wishlist (3/5)

A bit of a bonanza this week. I had some money left over from my birthday so I treated myself to Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y then my mum came round with a belated present: Jean Paul Gaultier Classique. Brilliant!

#56: Actually start saving for our wedding

Yep, this was a little hard to provide photographic evidence of without revealing any personal details whatsoever. Pretty impressed that I managed to pull it off!

We're getting married in less than 13 months' time and have £250 to show for it. Still, it's better than this time last week when we had absolutely zero. I've opened up a fancy new high-interest savings account and everything. I feel like a real adult!

Still to Achieve

#2: Pass induction

Induction is what happens in your first year of teaching. You're fully qualified, you have your own class and everything but in order to continue working as a teacher, you need to pass induction. This is assessed through regular observations, book scrutinies, meetings with a mentor and so on. I am 2 terms through and so far everything is going just fine. Fingers crossed!

#9: Sponsor a lovely blog

There are loads of blogs I like and I would really love to support one by sponsoring it. The trouble is deciding which one. Maybe I'll sponsor a different one every month. That could work.

#14: Take my little brother to a festival or gig

In 1001 days, my brother will be 14 (and a half). I'm not sure if he will be old enough for my mum to allow him to accompany me to a gig. A festival is almost certainly out of the question. Still, it's a nice goal to have.

#27: See a Tracey Emin exhibition

As clichéd as it is, Tracey Emin is my favourite artist. I remember seeing Exploration of the Soul in the Tate Modern aged 17 and just standing there crying as I read it. I particularly love her neons as I relate to them so well. There are several parallels between her life and mine and, since her work often reflects her life, I really connect with her pieces. I intend on seeing her exhibition in Margate,She Lay Down Deep Beneath The Sea, in the summer.

#54: Own a designer handbag

Yet another exposure of my materialism. My grandma keeps telling me to save for a Mulberry. "A Mulberry bag is a bag for life", as she keeps saying. As much as I would love one, I think it might be a little out of my price range. Maybe a Marc by Marc Jacobs or See by Chloe would be more accessible.

#61: Dye my hair pink

Aged 16, I decided I wanted bright pink hair. I didn't realise that I had to bleach it first so my naturally dark hair ended up a rather fetching terracotta shade. This time I'm determined to get it right with ombre ends (then I can just snip them off before term starts in September).

  4. You have some great goals!! Deciding on a blog to advertise with is really hard. I have tried a few different ones and which ever I see is giving me the most traffic I stick with.

  6. Ah Mulberry! Your preaching to the converted here! In fact, I'm on my way to the very shop it started in. I've even met the guy who began Mulberry *big fan*.

    Good luck on getting married and enjoy taking your brother to a festival! I bet he thinks your amazing!
