30 Before 30

“Well I’ve got a wonderful idea - we’ll spend the whole day doing things we’ve never done before. We will take turns. First things you’ve never done, then me. But of course, I can’t think of anything I’ve never done before.” - Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s

One of my favorite scenes from Breakfast at Tiffany's is when Holly and Paul go around doing things they've never done before - they go to Tiffany's and get a Cracker Jack ring engraved, and then he takes her on her first trip to the public library where she talks him into autographing his book (aww). 

Going to the Rose Bowl was definitely a check mark on the list of things I've never done before. As I continue rushing through my twenties, like many others I have been thinking about those other things that I hope to do before I get "old and boring." Rather than moan about the fact that 30 is fast approaching, I decided to make it fun with a bucket list of sorts. 30 things total, to be done in exactly 632 days. 

Without further ado...

30 Before 30
1. Read 30 books for fun

7. Try to be a vegetarian for a month
8. Use my passport
9. Take a classic American road trip
10. Quit my soda addiction

12. Plant a garden
13. Pass my comps
14. Propose my dissertation
15. Move in with my man
16. Visit a state I've never been to before (OR, MT, ID, UT, SD, AR, PA, MS, SC, NC, VT, ME, ND, HI, AK) 
17. Go camping
18. Relearn Spanish
19. Get to my ideal weight

It may be hard to get these all done, but I'm determined to try. And to have a whole lot of fun along the way (well, with most of them). Here goes!
