You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

30 by 30

I turned 24 today. I’m officially in my mid twenties now. Weird. I have so much I want to accomplish in my life and I figure it’s about time I write it down as a list of goals. Putting them out in public will help hold me accountable, plus I have a real tangible reminder to look back on so I can see how far I’ve come. I figure 30 is a good round number and a good age. So here is my list (in no particular order) of 30 things I want to accomplish by my 30th birthday:

  1. travel to India
  2. become a mother
  3. speak another language fluently
  4. read all books on Time 100 best novels list
  5. run a marathon
  6. sky dive
  7. go skiing
  8. celebrate 10th wedding anniversary (This will be April of the year I turn 30)
  9. visit every US state
  10. see all movies on Time 100 best movies list
  11. have a habit of exercising daily (at least 30 minutes)
  12. knit or crochet an item of clothing
  13. make a quilt
  14. earn an award with Phoebe
  15. take a painting class
  16. join a book club
  17. take a photography class
  18. have a recipe box of at least 100 things I like to cook
  19. eat some type of local delicacy (ie. insect)
  20. memorize Deuteronomy
  21. complete a scrapbook
  22. do the splits
  23. dye my hair something other than it’s natural color
  24. go scuba diving
  25. visit the grand canyon
  26. keep a blog or journal daily for one year
  27. drive across the country on route 66
  28. milk a cow
  29. ride a horse on a beach
  30. one mile on a hippity hop

I’ll be updating as I make progress. Wish me luck!

    Hi SkyWaitress, nice post. That’s an awesome list of goals. I hope you get to knock them off by the time you’re 30 but remember to keep adding to the list as you go as well; you don’t want to ever get to the point where you’ve achieved everything you ever wanted to do otherwise life would become meaningless.
    Good luck and take care.
    Katie Kay Holmes.
