When I turned 15, I remember going around school complaining that I was halfway to 30.  Now at 29, I’m going to pretend that on September 22, 2018 when the big 3-0 hits that being half-way to 60 is a cool thing.  My 2 year old niece told me yesterday that 30 isn’t old (of course a few minutes later she said I was old… well… you know – I’m going to stick with her first statement.)


Back in September (of 2017) I embarked on a list of 30 things to complete before the age of 30 sets in.  I, of course, dedicated a page to this in my bullet journal and shared it all over Facebook & Instagram where an outpouring of friends and family offered help (or maybe it was only support).

Regardless, this list I wrote up, at first just seemed like something fun to accomplish, and I tried to pick things that I figured I’d be able to do.  Now, 4 months in, and I’m looking back over this knowing FOR SURE I’ll likely not accomplish everything on the list.


I’ll keep you posted on my completions!
