30 before 30


I’ve seen a few of my friends posting a list of 30 things to do before the age of 30. I enjoy reading these as it gives a little glimmer of what a person is really about, what they really want to be up to, what they really want to achieve and the direction they want to steer their lives towards. It takes time and thought to make a 30 before 30 list and I love learning hidden depths that I didn’t know about people before. I figured that I would take that time to make my own and see what hidden depths I could learn about myself in the process! Some of the things on my list are more achievable than others, and some will naturally occur in time without the extra effort and courage to make them happen. Others require me to be vulnerable and ‘put myself out there’. This blog is the perfect place for me to share the adventures – successes and failures.

“I just want to make beautiful things even if nobody cares”.


So here it is – my 30 things to do before I am 30.

    This seems like a nice way to even find out what I want. I have a general idea but I think putting it down on paper in numbers would be very useful. I will try this! 🙂
    #11 all the way, btw. xP
