#25at25 – An Update


A lot of people have been asking me how I’m getting on lately, and I’ve found it a bit tricky to relay my progress, so I thought it was about time I sat down and looked at how I was getting on. As such, here’s a copy of the updated list. Though I feel like I’ve been making a pretty good effort and gently chipping away at the challenges, it looks like I need to get my finger out if I’m going to get all of this badman stuff done by the time I turn 26 in September. That being said, I’m still feeling pretty confident.
