In February 2023, two of my very, very close friends and I started a journey of self-improvement by working on grown-up merit badges. It’s like scouts for adults. Not quite sure how or when I became an adult, as I certainly didn’t sign up for it, but here we are.

I’m in the middle.

It’s been really fun working on the badges and I’ve definitely tried some things I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise – it has encouraged me to take a pottery class and to work on my French skills (or lack thereof, lol). I’m really enjoying it. 

A lot of the stuff I’ve been working on is crafting and getting together with my friends to work on badges (which is, itself, a badge) has been really fun. 

I’ve completed 7 badges so far:

  • Builder
  • Linguist
  • Rebel Buddy
  • DIY
  • My Collection (board games, of course)
  • My Roots
  • Brain Games

Badges I’m currently working on include:

  • Craft
  • Craft Part Two
  • Crafter (Advanced)
  • Scrapbooker
  • Writer
  • World Traveller
  • Adulting
  • Board Games
  • Gardener
  • My Passion
  • Camper

More to come later, of course, but here are a few photos of some of the stuff I’ve done. 😊
