30 Before 30 List

Posted Aug 16 2012 12:33am
1 year and 278 days.

That's how long I have until I hit the big 3-0.

While the idea of turning 30 doesn't really scare me, I do happen to punch my husband anytime he tells me that I'm closer to 30 than 20, or he accidentally tells people that I already am 30 - especially considering he's four months and one day older than I am and thus will turn 30 before me.

I used to look at the 30 Before 30 lists and think, "Oh big whoop, it's not like you haven't accomplished anything in life!" And now as I begin to count down the days, I have been wondering - what have I done with my 20's? Certainly I've accomplished a lot, and I will not get down on myself, but there are things I do want to accomplish before I enter into my fourth decade of life. Things on my bucket list that I want to be time specific. Goal oriented.

And as always ... a little untypical.
