A Long time ago I was reading Jon Westenberg’s piece “100 Things I’m Going To Do With My Life”. I thought “What a brilliant idea! I want to write my own list”. But time passed, and I forgot about it.

Recently I have decided to change my life completely. I quit my job, gave away most of the things I owned to charity and friends, packed only one backpack and left my country. These changes made me wonder what do I want to achieve in my life. How can I be happy? So I thought writing a list like this might help to clarify what’s important to me and find a new direction for a better tomorrow.

I aim to complete at least 5 of these listed things every year for the next 25 years. Here we go:

1. Record my own original song.
2. Own a dog.
3. Be interviewed for a magazine or a TV show.
4. Get my work printed in a design book.
5. Get married.
6. Become a Mom.
7. Own a house.
8. Own an art studio.
