My 30 before 30 List

I saw one of these on YouTube the other day and it made me what to write my own list of 30 things I want to do, achieve, accomplish, before I turn 30. The time felt right as I have just finished my degree and can focus on working on bigger and smaller goals without having anything holding me back.

So, I turned 22 on March 29 of this year so from the publication of this post, I have exactly 7 years, 9 months and 15 days to complete my 30 before 30.

  1. Get married.

I don’t think this one needs much explaining and may be something most people want to do at some point in their lives.

  1. Have a child.

Again, I don’t think this one needs much explaining, I would like to have more than one child, but it would be great to have at least like one before I am 30.

  1. Own my own home.

Again, not much explanation needed, before I am 30, I wish to own my own home, wherever it may be.

  1. Adopt a rescue dog.

I have always grown up with dogs around the house, I can’t remember never having one, and when the time comes for me to have my own dog, I would love to to adopt one.

  1. Travel to 10 new places.

Travelling is something I love and I’m always desperate to visit new places all the time, so hopefully this one should be quite easy to do.

  1. Read one book a week for a year.

Reading is another thing I love to do and should be relatively easy to read one book a week.

  1. Love my body.

I have always been insecure with my body and my weight is always something I struggle with so to love my body for the first time is something important.

  1. To set up a spending tracker/be financially stable.

This is something I am currently working on and I something I can bet everyone wants. I have been careless with my money in the past so I have started a spending tracker to kick-start my goal to be financially stable.

  1. Travel to two or more countries in one trip.

This basically counts as travelling but travelling to two places in one trip is something I’ve always wanted to do.

  1. Eat a pescatarian diet for six months.

I originally had this goal set for a year but I thought six months was a bit more realistic. I love fish and I know it is so good for your body, so I was hoping this would get me into a healthy eating routine.

  1. Learn a new language.

This is something I put on my goals list for 2018, and is something I can at least start to work on this year, but by the time I am 30 I would love to be fluent in another language.

  1. Learn to play an instrument.

I learnt to play the drums when I was 16 and was actually quite good at it as I picked it up so quickly, but I never kept up with it so I can’t remember a thing, I have always wanted to play the piano so that is the ultimate instrument.

  1. Find a new hobby.

Finding a new hobby is something that I have wanted to do for ages now because I always so the same old things, I don’t know what yet, but I’m hoping that I’ll find something.

  1. Practice self-care more often.

There is so much that is considered to be self-care so I want to explore different forms of self-care to help benefit my mental and physical health.

  1. Go to a festival.

I have never been to a big music festival before, I’ve been to small local ones in my area but never to anything on a large scale, ultimately I’d love to go to Coachella!

  1. Live in a different country for at least a month.

This again probably falls into the travelling category and is something that I had planned to do next year but I don’t think it is going to happen as soon as I like so it is definitely something I want to do before I turn 30.

  1. Get back into horse riding.

Horse riding and just horses in general played such a huge part of my childhood. I started having riding lessons from about 5/6 years old but when I was around 15/16 I fell out of love with horse riding. I have a few friends who have horses and I’m just so desperate to get back into the saddle now.

  1. Live in a city for a year.

This will probably be a city in the UK, being from the countryside, I’ve always said I could never live in a city but I would love to try it, mostly London, but I love Edinburgh so would definitely live there for a year too.

  1. Get into a routine of exercising regularly.

As I’ve already said, my body and weight is something that I’ve always struggled with and getting into a regular workout routine would benefit me in so many ways.

  1. Start my own book club.

Early on in this post I expressed my love for reading so for me, starting my own book club would be so much fun.

  1. Write a book.

Again, sticking with the literature theme, writing a book is something I have always wanted to do, and being a published author is a huge dream of mine.

  1. Get another tattoo.

I got my first tattoo when I was 16 and I’ve been saying ever since that I want another but I never have. This time I want one that has more meaning to it too.

  1. Do something for charity.

When I say do something for charity, I want it to be big and raise a lot of money and this is another big one of mine to do before I turn 30.

  1. Watch a show on the West End and Broadway.

I love going to the theatre but I’ve never even seen a show on the West End, so I thought I might as well throw in Broadway if the West End is getting a mention.

  1. Experiment with my style.

When it comes to clothes, I have always played it safe but my style is something I want to experiment with. I’ve worked in fashion retail for 3 ½ years and worked with different brands trend packages and I’d just like to experiment with my own clothes.

  1. Visit a vineyard/go wine tasting.

I’m not a massive drinker but if I do drink, wine is one of my go-to’s, especially red wine. So wine tasting is something I would love to do.

  1. Host a dinner party.

This one seems like a pretty simple thing to do but when I think of a dinner party, I want to go all out and fancy with it.

  1. Visit libraries across the world.

I have seen pictures of some of the world’s most beautiful libraries and I would love to visit some of them and this can be done in collaboration with number 5.

  1. Go to a carnival.

This one is similar to number 15, I have been to small local carnivals but I want to go to one of the massive ones abroad because I think they look like so much fun.

  1. Afternoon tea at The Ritz.

If you have never been for afternoon tea I strongly advise you do because it is lovely. I love going out for afternoon tea with my friends and I have always wanted to go The Ritz.
