30 things to do before 30 (8 months!!)

Inspired by the ever so fabulous Samiantha of BEING SAMIANTHA, I decided that I too wanted to create a list of the things I've been meaning to do. I've set myself a deadline of my 30th birthday so as not to be tempted to procrastinate for all of eternity. That means I have only 8 months to complete everything on my list!

Here goes:

  1. Take a salsa class

  2. Get a facial

  3. Get a message

  4. Take a photography class

  5. Write up a career plan

  6. Read 30 new books (2 down, 1 in progress)

  7. Pay off all my old debt

  8. Find the perfect shade of lipstick

  9. Buy the perfect everyday perfume

  10. Take a personal finance class

  11. Find the perfect body lotion

  12. Come up with a facial regimen i can stick to

  13. Make 5 new girlfriends (2 down, 3 more to go)

  14. Take a hip-hop dance class

  15. Get my driver's license

  16. Go see a dentist

  17. See a Broadway show

  18. See a comedy show

  19. Dine at 30 new restaurants

  20. Buy tickets to see the Nutcracker ballet

  21. Plan a picnic in Central Park

  22. Stay in a Bed n Breakfast in Vermont

  23. Complete a set of self portraits that I'm happy with

  24. Buy a high quality photo scanner

  25. Take a Photoshop class

  26. Try 30 new recipes

  27. Do 30 military push ups straight

  28. List 30 life lessons

  29. List 30 things I'm grateful for

  30. Find someone to teach me how to play soccer

Now I may tweek this list as time progresses. This is what I could come up with just this morning. I'm excited about all these things that I've been meaning to do and finally getting around to doing them! I'll keep you posted as I check them off my list =o)

  1. I made a list like this before my 35th birthday, I think it was. I didn't complete everything but it was motivation for me. You can do it!

  2. OMG I was mentioned in your blog!!!! woot woot!
    thanks doll!

    I'm stealing a few of your ideas and adding them to my list.

  3. Great list. I made a list of things to do before 40 (7 years away), but your list looks more doable than mine. I hope you post about completing or attempting to complete them!

  4. I like this. I need a 23 before 23... I might go do that right now...

  5. ohhh turning 30 isn't that bad.. I just turned 31 last week.. Ithink I have done so many more things in my 30s then 20s..
