Life: 30 before 30


My 25th birthday is fast approaching (5 months to be exact!) and although I’m really loving how my life is right now, I do still worry that my years of youth are slowly slipping away from me and I’m wasting my 20s a little. A bit dramatic I know but sometimes reality hits you and you realise that some of the things you’d wish to have happened by the time you’re 30 haven’t and you’re sat there wondering why.

Instead of looking back on my 20s and feeling disappointed, I decided to take control and write up a list of goals that I want to achieve before my dreaded 30th birthday. Since to-do lists have worked well for me in the past, I've compiled a monster one of 30 things to do before my 30th birthday list and will keep this list as updated as possible as I go along although I’m betting half of these will warrant a separate blog post as well.
