21. Improve my individual relationships with Boyfriend's family
22. Stay in touch with my sister more often
23. Start an herb garden
24. Write another 25,000 words on my book I got another 10,000... not bad.
25. Be truly surprised :o) 

So I didn't get everything done, but I'm pretty proud of what I did accomplish. I plan on helping my grandmother make tortillas next time I go over for dinner, so that is still something I want to accomplish. Some of the other things ended up not being that important to me, such as camping or making that particular chicken. I did make my first alfredo sauce, which I'm proud of, so even though I didn't get to cross off that item, I did improve my cooking skills.

The most important thing is to keep working on my writing skills. That will be a goal for my whole life, I think. It should be a continuous goal for all writers.

I'm happy with my progress! And I'm happy to be 25! :o)
