22 Things I’d Like to Do in 2022
Here is a list of 22 things I’d like to do in 2022, from theatre trips to learning new things. I’m hoping that 2022 is a better year than 2021.
Visit three National Trust sites
I really want to go to Kew Gardens, but I also want to revisit The Tower of London and other National Trust sites around the UK. Hopefully this year I can finally get back to embracing history and culture again.
Go to the gym ✔
With two weddings, a hen do and a holiday this year I could do with getting a bit fitter. So back to the gym I go.
Go to Secret Cinema ✔
In March I’ve got tickets to see Bridgerton at Secret Cinema with friends from work. I’m really looking forward to experiencing a Secret Cinema for the first time.
Complete a course
Whether it’s an online course, a development course at work, or something I sign up for outside of both I really want to keep learning in 2022.
Go to Disneyland Paris ✔
Let’s try this again, 3rd time lucky. We’ve rebooked my 25th Birthday trip for my 27th instead… let’s see if we actually manage to get there in 2022.
Read 100 books
I set my previous reading goal as 101 and was going to increase by one book each year, but I’ve decided that 100 books a year is still nearly 2 books a week and that’s enough for me.
Write another novel ✔
I haven’t done much writing this year and I want to change that. Next year I’m going to write another novel.
See a Shakespeare play at the Globe
I still haven’t been to see a Shakespeare play performed at the Globe. How? I’m a Shakespeare fan (once an actress!) and I work near a Shakespeare Globe, yet have never been.
Go to a drag show/brunch ✔
As a massive fan of drag culture, I would love to see a Drag Show or go to a drag brunch, in or outside of London.
Complete three 30 day challenges ✔
I could do with doing another no-spend challenge, potentially another reading challenge. And it might be fun to do a brand new 30-day challenge in 2022 as well.
Do something for charity
Whether it be another Memory Walk or volunteering, I want to do something for charity in 2022.
Go back to Harry Potter Studios
I still haven’t seen Gringotts at the Harry Potter studios, so I’m definitely heading over there in 2022.
Update my wardrobe ✔
I haven’t gone properly clothes shopping in a while, and a lot of my clothes from pre-pandemic no longer fit me. So I need to update my wardrobe in 2022.
Go to a concert ✔
My mum bought me and my sister tickets for ABBA. This will be my first concert in over 10 years…
Get a new haircut ✔
I was growing my hair in 2020 for my sister’s wedding and then in 2021, I kept it short but neat for her second wedding in early 2022. As soon as she’s married in front of friends and family I am dyeing it and doing something different. I just don’t know what yet.
Do a talk at my old school ✔
I’ve been in touch with my school about doing talks with their writing and drama students, to discuss my journey from school to career.
Donate blood ✔
I’ve been meaning to donate blood for ages, but every time I book an appointment I have to cancel it for some reason: lockdown, work, travel issues etc.
Take driving lessons for an automatic car
I technically have my driver’s license, having passed my test five years ago. But I’ve never driven since, and I’ve decided when I do drive again I want to drive an automatic, preferably electric car. So it’s time to get back behind the wheel.
Have an all-inclusive mini-break
I could do with a break in 2022, and it would be fantastic if I could have an all-inclusive break somewhere. Even if that means an expensive weekend away at a restaurant or a Center Parcs trip with family. I’m all in.
Eat at a Michelin Star restaurant
I still want to eat at a Michelin Star Restaurant, but it’s been hard finding someone to go with me as it can get pretty pricey.
Get a drink at the American Bar in the Savoy
Sounds extremely fancy, but I’d love to get a cocktail at the American Bar in the Savoy. Maybe after one of my National Trust days out or after a show.
In 2021, I fostered Bella and her four kittens for my friend’s Cat Cafe. I would love to foster another cat or litter. Whether for the cat cafe or for a local shelter.
That’s everything on my list: 22 things I’d like to do in 2022. If I manage at least half of them I’ll be happy. But what’s on your list? Let me know in the comments below.
