my thirty before thirty.


A month or so before my 29th birthday (August 25th) I decided I was going to try to complete a thirty before thirty list this year. I wanted it to be challenging, but I also wanted it to be very doable. I only have  a year, after all! I thought long and hard and this is what I came up with. I’ve already gotten started on a few things and I’ll come back and edit this post as I work on it. I would also like to make update posts about various tasks throughout the year.
