30 (be)for 30

A few years back I fell in love with ESPN’s series 30 for 30. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, it is a series of sports stories that have taken place within the first 30 years of ESPN’s existence. Then, last year a friend of mine mentioned that she had made a list of things that she wanted to accomplish before her 30th birthday.  Thirty seems to be such a grand milestone in life, so it had me thinking about my first 30 years. When the time comes, I’d like to have an idea of how these 30 years will have impacted my story. Will I have done things that I have dreamt of? There’s only one way to find out. Universe & friends- here are 30 things I hope to accomplish before I turn 30.

  1. Marry my best friend!
  2. Stomp grapes at a winery.
  3. Take more Spanish lessons.
  4. Hike Mt. Rainier- Also seen on my 2019 Bucket List.
  5. Run a marathon- preferably Boston!
  6. See the northern lights.
  7. Catch fireflies- I saw a single firefly in Italy and cried…
  8. Spend the night in a tree house.
  9. Write a song.
  10. Throw a surprise party- Who/what will it be for?
  11. Donate my hair to locks of love.
  12. Attend a major sporting event- fingers crossed for the Olympics.
  13. Afford to donate my whole paycheck to something/ someone who needs it more.
  14. Paddle board on Lake Havasu.
  15. Go whale watching.
  16. Visit the real “UP” House- Adventure is out there!
  17. Visit a Disney park during Christmas.
  18. Visit a Disney park on a Dapper Day- Because one Disney goal is not enough.
  19. Help make someone’s dream come true.
  20. Send/ Take my family on a trip- to start scratching away at everything I owe them.
  21. Go to Comicon, dressed and all.
  22. See at least 2 more Wonders of the World- natural or man-made! I won’t be picky.
  23. Buy a house.
  24. Become a parent.
  25. Learn how to bake my Grammy’s cinnamon rolls- This one I really wish I would have done a long time ago, because I know they’ll never be the same without her. Take advantage of the time you are given!
  26. Host a charity event.
  27. Go on a trip with The Bucket List Family.
  28. Fly in a hot air balloon.
  29. Go bungee-jumping- can’t believe I just said that.
  30. See a panda bear in real life.

I have a little bit of time, so let’s see how I do! What do you want to accomplish before your next birthday?
