30 before 30

30 before 30

I am so excited about this! Click on the button above and you can join in on the fun, no matter how young or old you are. So here is it, my 30 things to do before I turn 30 (in 4.5 years). Surprisingly this list was not nearly as easy as I thought it would be. They are not in any particular order and there's no rhyme or reason behind it, just a bunch of stuff I want to do, sooner or later, don't judge!

1. Be published (either for something in my profession or a personal writing)

2. Get married
3. Go to California
4. Swim in the Pacific Ocean
5. Own a good set of dishes that match
6. Go on a family vacation with all my little siblings (has never, ever been done)
7. Run in a charity race
8. Sponsor a child
9. Visit Washington D.C.
10. Learn how to make Buckeye Cookies like my Grandma (It's an Ohio thing)
11. Learn to bake Kolachi like my grandma and grandpa (it's a Polish thing)
12. Go back to school (either for my PhD or another Masters)
13. Go white water rafting
14. Take my mom on a cruise/vacation and be able to pay for it for her
15. Get a tattoo to represent my family
16. Go to a Ohio State game at the Shoe
17. Clean out my childhood bedroom at my mom's house
18. Catch a fish
19. Go camping
20. Go to a winery
21. Learn how to crochet from my step mom
22.Learn how to sew
23. Plant a garden
24. See a movie in 3-D
25. Make a Thanksgiving Dinner
26. Learn how to swim (I sorta know but would like to be able to save my own life if needed)
27. Have a fun getaway weekend/spa weekend some friends
28. Go to a water park ( I loved the one in the Bahamas and want to go to one for a whole day since we only had such a short time on the cruise)
29. Go to a movie alone
30. Spend a day being completely lazy and watch an entire season of a show (taking suggestions)

Hopefully I can complete all of these, some are a stretch and will take some money that I don't know if I will have but I think it will be fun to cross things off this list :)


  1. What a great list! A lot of people who make these have the craziest, most unattainable goals on there, it's ridiculous. I like yours though -- doable, and still incredibly satisfying. Good luck! :)

  2. I totally agree with Sam. EXCELLENT list! Thanks so much for participating today! Your list is great... I love that we share so many things! (And, #30 is GENIUS. What a perfect way to be "lazy" and feel accomplished by it!)

    I'm so happy that I found a new blog to read! :)


  3. you are going to have to spend a few days at the movies! haha

    And if you come to CA we better meet up! :)

  4. Wonderful list! own a set of dishes, haha, that made me laugh!

  5. I really enjoyed your list! I especially liked #8. This is one of my goals too, but I want to accomplish it sometime in the next 6 months.

    Also, I recommend Smallville if you like super hero shows and your not afraid of a little cheesey sci-fi. :-)
