30 before 30

Instead of doing New Year’s Resolutions this upcoming year, I’ve decided to write a list of 30 things I want to do before I turn 30. The great thing about a list like this is that you feel you have time to accomplish things and don’t feel like a complete failure if you don’t get something done right away.

Initially I was going to do a 101 in 1001 list, but the idea of writing a list of 101 things I want to do in 1001 days seemed way too daunting….so I was happy when I discovered 30 before 30 instead!

1. Go to California again (for at least 2 weeks)

2. Go to Bonnaroo

3. Learn how to cook at least 15 meals without recipes

4. Learn how to bake my mom’s pumpkin bread, banana bread (February 26, 2012) and zucchini bread

  4. I am almost done compiling my 30 before 30, and I thought I was being SO creative by including a Cirque show. Apparently, I’m not the only blogger pining for some crazy acrobatics 🙂
