30 Before 30!

30 before 30 b

At the end of February I (unfortunately) turned 29. I am not looking forward to reaching the big 3-0 at all, when you are little you think of 30 as being so old and I guess that I thought that I would be in a different place in my life before hitting this milestone. I know age is just a number and I definitely do not feel (or look) my age.

For several months now I have been considering my 30 before 30. I have heard of people doing these kinds of bucket lists for various ages and thought that it would be a nice idea to get to 30 and look back on the previous year at all the things I have hopefully achieved.

I decided to share my list with you in the hope that the fear of failing in front of others keeps me nice and motivated. I will also be featuring some of the aims on my list in their own blog posts as I complete them.

So here goes……
