30 Before 30

I turned 25 last month. It’s hard to believe that I’m already halfway through my twenties but I’m happy to say that they’ve been pretty good so far. Of course there have been low points but thankfully, the better moments far outnumber the bad. I’ve definitely grown up (at least a bit) but some things about me will never change — one of those things being that I’m always thinking about the future. Knowing that I now have five years until I hit the next big milestone, I decided to compile a list of thirty things I want to do before I reach the big 3-0.

This turned out be an interesting little project in itself. I’d definitely recommend that everyone come up with a list like this of their own. It really makes you think about what you want from life. Take your time with it and you’ll undoubtedly come up with some potentially life-changing ideas. It’s exciting to think of all the great moments you have yet to experience. It’s also pretty satisfying to realise all the amazing things you have already done. Who would have thought that making a list could be so much fun?!

      1. I’m working on it – this is the year where I focus more on my goals and less on others. I’ve put others first for far too long – I just wish it didn’t sound so selfish to say that I’m going to focus on me more!
