So, 30 things to do before I’m 30 – next year I turn 29. I know right?
Where has time gone?
With the big 30 creeping up, I thought why not make a list of ‘30 things before I am 30’ but why you may ask?
I feel that I have been letting the years pass by without ticking off things that I’ve been meaning to do but never got around to doing or had motivation for.
This year has been one of the most difficult of my life, having been in and out of hospital as well as ill ALOT. If this year has taught me anything its to make the most of NOW. You never know what is around the corner or what the future brings, so enjoy and make the most of every moment.
More than anything, age thirty is about building momentum in my life and career, setting the stage for many more exciting adventures.
I am rather excited about this list of 30 things.
Below is my list, I would love to hear from ANYONE who can help make these things happen.
What with hangovers taking days to recover from, I need a silver lining to turning 30.
1) Pass my driving test!
2) Take care of my Body…
This isn’t just “go to the gym”; but more along the lines of: start meditating, try out yoga & see if it’s for me, eat healthier, walk more often and so on and so on. Mind, I do want to lose at least 5 stone.
3) Visit alot of new places in the UK
4) Go to a weekend festival
How is it that I’ve never been to a music festival before the age of 30?! I have no idea…
5) Volunteer at a local shelter or charity for the day
6) Take a class at a local college
I love learning and while I may no longer officially be a student, I think there’s plenty to still be gained in schools. Id love to learn how to cook more, or build up my photography skills.
7) Take a spontaneous trip
While I do like to go on trips, it’s usually somewhere that I’ve meticulously planned
8) Give a public talk or presentation
Oh god. Even the thought of this frightens me.
9) Start saving more
10) Complete a 365 day photography project
11) Go 24 hours without technology
Unplug and detox from technology and social media for a day.
12) Start a business
13) Test out being a vegetarian for a month
14) Swim with dolphins
15) Grow my own vegetables
16) Learn how to play a musical Instrument
17) Take my cooking to the next level
18) Apply to be on TV Show
19) Visit Mexico or USA
20) Take a risk: Go bungee jumping or skydiving or swim with sharks.
21) Buy some stocks
This is a risk in itself. I need to learn enough to invest some money or have someone else do it for me. No risk, no reward.
22) Stop holding grudges
Past grievances are overrated. I don’t need negativity in your life and definitely don’t need it over something that happened years ago.
23) Learn a new skill or language
24) Eat really expensive food at posh restaurant
25) Do Pay it forward more often
This involves starting a chain of positive events by paying for someone’s coffee or helping them change a flat tire.
26) Make a family tree
27) Go wild camping
28) Apply for a dream job
29) Make a dream board
30) FALL COMPLETELY IN LOVE… WITH MYSELF.
There is no one on this planet quite like ME, so its time to love and cherish everything about my fabulous self!
Right, I turn 29 in March…. Best get starting. I’ve put it all out there now. Let’s see what happens.
Wish me luck.
