30 Things to Do Before 30

For my birthday this year I gave myself a goal of completing 30 different goals before I turned 30. They include things I love, things I need to do, and things that have been on my to-do list for way to long.

The list will be updated as I accomplish the goals and keep track of my progress.

Time window: July 10, 2014 to July 10, 2015

Should be fun! Plus, I’ll also keep track on Instagram with the #30before30 tag…
