30 Things to Do Before I Turn 30

I recently turned 27. I am proud of everything I’ve accomplished thus far in my life- I lived in Dublin for a year to do my Masters in Medieval Irish History, I’m slowly but steadily developing my career, I’ve travelled to numerous countries and cities, I’m an involved member of Alpha Gamma Delta, and I have a fantastic boyfriend, a loving family, and wonderful friends. However, I thrive on constant growth and learning. 

I have made a list of 30 Things to Do Before I Turn 30! Pretty much like those 101 Things in a 1001 Days, but a little bit more manageable. This will allow me to branch out and have accomplishments and learn new things without making it into a project that takes over my life. As I accomplish these goals, I  will post on them! I will give myself until June 30, 2019 to make it!

    For someone, whose life is kind of like goal-less, this is pretty amazing!
    Good luck to you.

    You weren’t kidding about the travel – what amazing places you’ve seen already! And also I must say, what an interesting education. That would have been an unreal experience to study that in the heart of the culture.

    Love this list – it’s fun, realistic, and has points I can agree every gal should experience. I hope you circle back in 2019.

    Best of luck!

      Thank you! I’ve noticed that many lifestyle bloggers have lists that are made up of incredible tasks, but require a great deal of time and money! I have to work within my free time, and not hit my bank account too hard, while still developing myself. I hate to admit it, but I’ve been working on that list for over a month!!
