30 Before 30

In an attempt to be more goal-oriented and positive, I have decided to make a list of 30 things to accomplish before turning 30. The reasons for blogging about the list will become apparent shortly. I made the list in May, 2010 (at which point I had not done a single thing on the list), and the timer is up in July, 2017. Here’s the current status:

1. Finish graduate school

8. Go to a vineyard

9. Become fluent in another language

10. Dye my hair

11. Run for charity

12. Plant and successfully manage a garden

13. Make a complete Thanksgiving dinner, solo

14. Learn how to dance

15. Set up a healthy retirement/investment account

16. Finish every unread or partially read book I own

17. Learn to swim

18. Visit the Smithsonian

19. Learn to ride a bicycle

20. Kiss someone at midnight on New Year’s Eve

21. Pull an all-nighter

22. Teach a non-terminal course at a college
