Thirty Before Thirty

My dear friend Sejal has, at the ripe old age of 25, been working away at a bucket list. It's quite inspiring--she is one of the most adventurous, fun-loving, and vivacious people I've ever met in my life, and her excitement about life and the experiences it has to offer is contagious. So contagious, in fact, that I started my own bucket list. It's started just as a note on my iPhone, and I've added and removed things over the last year as I've thought of them. (Aren't smart phones handy?)

So, "Bucket List" feels very morbid to me, and I'm not good at LONG term planning. But my friend Shannon started a "25 before 25" list and I really like the idea. (Maybe I should put, "Get older friends?" on the list. Un bonne idee.) I've started my own: Thirty Before Thirty. THIRTY, people. It's coming for me, and fast. So here's the start of it, I'll add more soon. Any suggestions?

1. Finish my CPA
2. Learn Spanish
3. Go to a Cowboys football game in Arlington
4. Drop two pant sizes
5. Run an entire 5k, no walking
6. Learn to snowboard: make it down the mountain without stopping or falling
7. See a whale
8. Learn to sew
9. 3 more stamps in my passport
10. Make tamales
11. Go white water rafting
12. Go to the WDW Food and Wine Festival
13. Take a road trip with someone else
14. See a concert in the Gorge
15. Cut down my own Christmas tree
16. Join a book club (Create one maybe? RCGnet!)
17. Use my accounting skills to help a non-profit organization
18. Try bikram yoga
19. See fireworks on a beach
20. Start my own recipe book/box, with family recipes


  1. Probably not to the extent you mean, but you've totally done #17. ;)

  2. That's true, but keep it in mind in case you guys need any more help! I like using my powers for good ;)
