30 Things I'm Going to Do Before 30


Four years ago I created a “25 Things to do By 25” list. This comprised of 25 things I wanted to accomplish by the age of 25. I completed 15 of these before 25, a few I completed after, and the rest I either no longer cared to accomplish or they just fell off the radar. After turning 27, I decided to get back at it and start another list for 30.

I’ll update this post when I complete each goal (if I remember lol)
