30 Before 30

When I was preparing to turn 25 years old (September 2013), I decided to make a list of 30 things to do before I turned 30 (September 2018). I wanted to give myself some direction on things that I wanted to accomplish.

I chose fun as well as more serious things. I made sure I had some things that would make me a better person and things that would teach me about the world. I hope this list helps me gain new experiences and expand my comfort zone while becoming more independent. 

Mainly, I want the list to help me become more me

Here is said list:
