The Ever So Cliche 30 By 30 List

We can either call this another quarter life crisis, or we can put a positive spin on it, and claim this as a challenge to live and let go. I’m definitely going with the latter for obvious reasons. I created a 30 by 30 list because I thought it would be something fun to do to take the edge off of turning 30 late next year (I’m currently 28). I am a fan or to-do lists, and I love a good challenge, so why not challenge myself to live, laugh, grow, and have fun while doing so?

It made better sense in my head, but either way, check out the list and the video and let me know what fun and crazy goals you have for yourself this year!

P.S. – Is anyone else slightly freaked out about turning 30!?

P.P.S – I also forced my best-friend to create a list… and now I’m afraid she’s going to run us both broke with all the traveling and eating she has planned. I clearly forgot who she was. I didn’t think this shit through.

P.P.P.S – Yes, that is my boyfriend in the video. No, I do not know why he is like this…
