30 before 30!

Recently I’ve been making plans for the next couple years and telling people “It’s something I want to do before I’m 30”.  It scares me that the day I turn 30 is less than 2 years away and there are so many things I want to experience and accomplish before then. Time is ticking away and the list of things I want to do is just getting longer.   In no particular order here are 30 things I want to do before I’m 30…

  1. Backpack around Europe, preferably alone.  Nothing against my friends, but I just want the experience.
  2. Lose 30lbs and keep it off.  Anyone have any motivational tricks?
  3. Jump out of a flying plane, aka SkyDive!
  4. Grow my hair long and donate it to a good cause.
  5. Try being a Vegetarian/Pescatarian…just try it.
  6. Become 100% debt free
  7. Join the Hokie Club, been meaning to do this for a long time.
  8. Get a nice digital SLR camera and really learn how to use it
  9. HUGE downsizing of my possessions.  Living in a tiny hotel room with nothing but what I fit in one suitcase for 2 months really made me realize I don’t need as much as I have.
  10. Volunteer more.
  11. Hike a mountain trail
  12. Kayak in a Washington Lake
  13. Start a side business, Social Media/Event Management for small businesses
  14. Learn to ski, obviously snowboarding was not for me
  15. Run a 5K, the entire thing!
  16. Bike more and farther
  17. Read more & watch less TV.  I’ve got half of that done.
  18. Cancel cable…who needs it with Netflix & Hulu.
  19. Dance more, take a class.
  20. Take up Yoga, I need some relax time
  21. Make a real effort to try online dating.  Who knows, maybe I’ll meet the man of my dreams.
  22. Go to Hawaii
  23. Save more money.
  24. Get Lane certified as a therapy dog and work with Alzheimer patients
  25. Drive along the Olympic Peninsula
  26. Hire a house cleaning service, I hate cleaning
  27. Stay in the same apartment.  If you know me and my moving habits you know this will be a big accomplishment.
  28. Pass the final section of the NCIDQ and become licensed in WA.
  29. Learn to french braid my own hair…this will become useful as I’m growing it out to donate it.
  30. TBD…gotta leave space for something!
Let operation “Do things before I turn 30!” begin.
