30 Things to Accomplish before I Turn 30

As I celebrate my 29th birthday, I’ve decided to create a list of “30 Things to Do Before I’m 30″. Perhaps a little ambitious but go big or go home I suppose. The goal here is nothing habit changing like my often failed New Years Resolutions. Lists help me get stuff done, so this list will help encourage me to try new things or master new skills before I enter my 30′s – a time I assume will bring new goals or interests. Or whatever…it’s a list of fun stuff!

  1. Visit Seattle
  2. See Mt. Rushmore
  3. Hike a Colorado 14′er
  4. Get another tattoo
  5. Go white water rafting
  6. Finish a large crochet project
  7. Paint a masterpiece
  8. Earn my Masters in Public Administration
  9. Eat something totally new

  1. I also think the funniest item is “ride the light rail” – I’ve lived in Denver 3 years and never had a reason to ride it! But I guess you don’t always need a reason…I’ll just ride for fun someday! lol

  2. Great list! Wish we lived closer and I could join you on a few of them.

    • Will do. I hope my camera skills will improve as a byproduct! Multi-tasking skill improvements for the win!

  3. My favorite – mastering chop sticks. I cannot get this skill down to save my life.

  4. Can we get another tattoo together?!?! Let’s plan it!! I do love the chopsticks one as well :-)

  5. Love this list! Dan’s made sushi at home and I’ve hemmed pants, so we might be able to help you there if needed.
