30 Before 30

Ever since I downloaded the Timehop app on my phone a few weeks ago (I know I’m really late to the party), I’ve been eye rolling and cringing at my former self’s statuses. Boyfriend statuses and bad grammar aside, it’s a useful way to remember old posts and goals. It reminded me that one year ago today I posted my 30 Before 30 list. Your 30 Before 30 is pretty simple: 30 things you want to accomplish or do before you turn the dreaded 3-0. I had almost forgotten about that list I made on a good friends request 365 days ago, but here it is:

30Before30

  1. Get my passport stamped✔️
  2. Gamble in Vegas
  3. Sign up for a yoga class
  4. Walk the Brooklyn Bridge
  5. Pay off those student loans
  6. Brew my own beer✔️
  7. Ace an interview✔️
  8. Plant a herb garden
  9. Visit an island country
  10. Go camping
  11. Get over my fear of scuba diving
  12. Run my first race
  13. Go to a wine tasting in Napa
  14. Land my first real job
  15. Learn to drive a stick shift
  16. Try golf
  17. Rock out at a huge music festival
  18. Hike part of the Appalachian trail
  19. Drive the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway
  20. Eat a cronut
  21. Boat on the lake in central park
  22. Give skiing a shot
  23. Read 25 of Time Magazines 100 best books of all time
  24. Learn about photography✔️
  25. Visit the city where I was born
  26. Take a class to learn a new hobby
  27. Cook every recipe in a cookbook
  28. Lose 30 pounds
  29. Take a hot air balloon ride
  30. Become a mother

I placed a check mark by the ones that I completed in year 25 of my life. I still have 26-29 left to complete the rest, which I think is doable. I feel like a few fun vacations will cover most of them! Upon second glance, I’m not really sure what I was thinking when I wrote #30: Become a mother; I’m not ready to be a mother and I’m not sure if that’s something we will do by the time I’m 30. Maybe when I’m 29 or 30; we’re definitely not in a hurry to take on parenthood.

This year I’ve got plans to tackle #8: Plant a herb garden, #10: Go Camping, #13: Wine taste in Napa (maybe), #14: Land my first real job, #27: Cook every recipe in a cookbook (at least get started), and #28: Lose 30 Pounds.

I selected the cookbook I’ll be baking, broiling, roasting, and frying my way through: Thug Kitchen. I’ve heard so much about it in the blog world and think it will combine my love of flavor and my desire to be healthy. It’s a vegan cookbook with an attitude; the wording is hilarious!
