30 Before 30

I can't even count the number of people who said, "oooh, next one is the big one!" this year when I told them I was turning 29.  Well, if this year's birthday (and birthday weekend) were any indication, I guess this year is going to be big... I thought it'd be fun to round up a few of the things I want to do before this "milestone" to feel like I'm getting the most out of my last year of my 20s.  I tried to pull ideas for every aspect of my life: some of these are work-related, others travel-related, a few are to make the world a better place, and the rest are to try and be my best self.
1. Invest in an original piece of art

2. Get back to my ideal strength and weight

3. Volunteer

4. Get 8 hours of sleep each night

5. Purge and donate my closet

6. Start an herb garden

7. Have a girls night once per month

8. Visit more baseball stadiums

9. Network more

10. Run another race

11. Take a cooking class

12. Try yoga

13. Start a family tree

14. Do something nice for a stranger everyday

15. Visit the rest of the breweries in Charleston

16. Try something just for the adrenaline rush

17. Learn about wine

18. Make a plan to get to Cuba

19. Be a positive encouragement to those around me

20. Make an effort to break out of my introverted shell

21. Go on a hike

22. Advance my career

23. Buy a new camera

24. Travel internationally

25. Invest for the future

26. Cut my hair to donate again

27. Grow this blog

28. Stay more connected with family

29. Learn all the words to Rapper's Delight

30. Write to my congressmen about causes about which I'm passionate

I have had a pretty great 30th year and think you will accomplish a lot of your goals! I think some of these would be fun for you and your husband to do together :) xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

This is a great list and I know you will get at least most of it done. Your 30's sound scary, but they are awesome!

Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders said...

These are all such great items on your list! I love all of your travel plans, but I also really love your goal to visit the rest of the breweries in Charleston!

Julie said...

Great list, you can do it!

I was so worried about thirty, and it's been the best decade - seriously!

Jen said...

This is such an awesome list. I have to say that my 30's have been the best so far! Way better than my 20's.

Love your 30 before 30 goals. That picture of y'all is so cute! Sounds like things are about to get exciting!

What a great list! So many of these are on mine as well - especially Cuba! My dad was born there and it's pulling at me but it's such an emotional decision! Happy Birthday!
