-Get enough money to mortgage a house
-Possibly get a full-time position instead of freelance
-Get my black belt in kickboxing
-create my own startup
-get back into fitness and complete my PT course

M贸nica FreitasDec 23, 2021, 3:37 PM

Sara Pinto Okay, so quick and easy:

  1. Move out of my parents' house;
  2. Continue on my mental a physical improvement journey;
  3. Start traveling (as soon as covid lets me);
  4. Start investing;
  5. Relearn german and french properly;
  6. Do an interrail;
  7. Skydive;
  8. I will probably get more tattoos.

Sara Pinto What about you?

Sara PintoDec 23, 2021, 4:57 PM

Jack Boreham Oh wow, you have an ambitious year in front of you! I hope you can check all that out of your list. And after reading "black belt" I made a note to myself to not annoy you 馃槀

M贸nica Freitas Uhh good one! Any special reason for relearning the languages?

Sara PintoDec 23, 2021, 5:17 PM

M贸nica Freitas For me, it has to be:

  • Get more piercings
  • Finish my degree
  • Get a full-time job
  • Learn how to do splits
  • Start saving for real
  • Maybe plan a big trip?

So far this is it, I'll probably be adding to it through the year though haha

M贸nica FreitasDec 27, 2021, 3:30 PM

Sara Pinto, It's a dream of mine to know five languages. It's a hard dream but reachable. I've always seen languages as codes - once you know them, you're in on the secret. German and French were languages that I used to know but forgot over time, and I think with proper relearning, I can make them stick.

M贸nica FreitasDec 27, 2021, 3:31 PM

Sara Pinto TOUR TIME! LOVE IT! Why the split? My goal, flexibility wise, is just being able to reach my toes while standing ahah

Sara PintoDec 27, 2021, 3:53 PM

M贸nica Freitas, I get it. I'm a language enthusiast, and I think it's such a skill to have. I think we lose a lot in translations. It becomes hard to get out point across in the way we wish. I hope you can relearn, and maybe you can teach me one thing or two haha

Sara PintoDec 27, 2021, 3:57 PM

M贸nica Freitas Why not the split? Haha. I feel like it's doable and I think it would be fun. How cool would it be to say you can do the split?

M贸nica FreitasDec 28, 2021, 12:13 PM

Sara Pinto So true, and it gives you an advantage. Besides, you get more comfortable traveling, for instance, because you do know the language. Deal 馃槈

M贸nica FreitasDec 28, 2021, 12:14 PM

Sara Pinto, I hope you can! ahaha Maybe you'll become TIKTOK famous for doing the split

Sara PintoDec 28, 2021, 7:08 PM

M贸nica Freitas, now that would be some ambitious thought for 2022 haha

M贸nica FreitasDec 29, 2021, 12:25 PM

Sara Pinto fingers crossed :crossed_fingers:

Teri Eyenike Wow, I need to take some tips from you! I loved the adventure topic. Have you ever tried any of these or do you want to try them for the first time?

Sara PintoJan 10, 2022, 3:29 PM

Abeer Great bucket list!! I like how you combine growing your knowledge with enjoying life. It can be difficult to reconcile the two. How's it going so far?

Teri EyenikeJan 10, 2022, 3:40 PM

Sara Pinto, I have hiked and have done kayak.
I haven't tried skydiving and surfing 馃弰.

Sara PintoJan 10, 2022, 3:57 PM

Teri Eyenike That's pretty cool! I would like to try hiking, but I'm afraid I'll suck at it and just fall on my face 馃槀 I hope you can do it all!!

Sara Pinto Like most endeavors, it鈥檚 going in waves. Some days I make a lot of headway, other days I feel like I ended up a step back. Overall I鈥檓 making good progress slowly changing my habits and lifestyle which I鈥檓 truly grateful for. That being said, I might have to add 鈥淕et more sleep鈥 on my list 馃樀

Sara PintoJan 13, 2022, 10:15 AM

Abeer We can't rush progress, and a good night's sleep is always needed! I hope this year goes as you wish!
