22 Things I’d Like to Do in 2022


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 away

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.

Foster some more cats

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.
