30 Things To Do Before 30 List

As of now, I am 26 years old, and I will be turning 27 in April 2015. That means that I have 3.5 years until I turn the big 3-0! I figure, that’s plenty of time to accomplish some fun & adventurous life goals that I haven’t yet checked off the list. I’ve definitely done a lot in my 26 years on earth. Lived abroad, got a master’s degree, and traveled to 26 countries (I think that’s how many), but there are definitely some things that I still would like to do that I haven’t yet ticked off the list. Some might call this a “bucket list,” but I honestly hate that term and concept. I know its inevitable, but I don’t like thinking about my death. I prefer to hit milestones throughout my life, and think about what a wonderful gift life is rather than come up with a list of things I want to do before I “kick the bucket.”

Just in case you haven’t caught on to where I’m going with this yet, I have decided to create a list of 30 things that I want to accomplish before I turn 30. Thirty life goals is a lot to get through in 3 years. Some will be big, and some will be not so big, but if they’re on this list, then I obviously should make a serious effort to do them. I have put a lot of thought into all of these goals, and they are in no particular order. I figured that if I share them with you all, I will be held more accountable for getting them done! Right? Who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to add these to your life goals list as well. So, here we go!
