World Domination and other Life Goals

Here yea, here yea! All hail Empress Meg! Oh, no wait. That was just a nice little dream I had. I'm awake now. You may or may not remember, that as a part of my 25 goals for this year, I'm bent on edu-ma-cating myself. Right now, I'm taking a class called Instant Bestseller by Tim Grahl, who's a pretty awesome, super smart dude. In addition to watching videos that make me go out and do stuff like start an amazing newsletter *cough, cough, Please sign up! cough, cough*, I sometimes have reading assignments. Which is how I came to discover Chris Guillebeau, The Art of Non-Conformity community, and A Brief Guide to World Domination. If you like tongue-in-cheek, motivational guides, [...]

25 Goals for My 25th Year

I loved setting high goals for myself last year. Having those goals out there for everyone to see continually pushed me out of my comfort zone. At times, I felt a little vulnerable, but I grew so much and had a fantastic time doing it. I loved having a whole year because this allows me to make some bigger goals and strive to set habits instead of one-offs. So this year I'm back with new categories and new heights to stretch myself for another stellar year! 1. Become a regular at a local cafe or lunch spot in Marburg, Germany. 2. Be serenaded on the canals in Venice, Italy. 3. Visit the Colosseum in Rome, Italy. 4. Munch on a pretzel [...]
