30 Before 30

Back in May 2012, I posted a list of the things I want to accomplish before I’m thirty years old. I mostly created this list for fun but as I enter the later portion of my twenties, I realize that I can do more with my life. As I reread that list, I can only think about how exciting and fulfilling my life would be if I attempted to complete the entire list in two years time (as I’m turning 28 soon). During Halloween, I learned the Thriller dance (moonwalking is next!) Done and crossed off the list!

My challenge to myself to check off all the tasks on the list by March 5, 2016. Dear reader, I encourage you to make a list of your own- your adventures and your life await you.
