Thirty Before Thirty!

I turned 29 at the beginning of this month and quite literally dived into the final year of my twenties at my birthday party by tripping over in killer platform boots and concussing myself on the patio door. It’s good to see that even though I’m getting older, I’m still an absolute divvy.

Anyway, since then I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the fact that I’m even closer to turning the big three-zero. It feels like such a milestone – and feels like I’m about to become a REAL adult! I’ve already got so much to look forward to in the final year of my twenties (you know, like getting married!!!), but I’ve decided to do a little bucket list as well to keep me busy.

It’s nothing major or fancy, it’s just some nice things that I would like to hopefully do over this next year before I begin another decade. So here it is – my thirty before thirty list!

  1. Attend a life drawing session
  2. Eat at a Michelin starred restaurant
  3. Read at least 12 books
  4. Bake some bread
  5. Create my own comic book
  6. Take a trip somewhere new
  7. Go cold water swimming/have a dip in the sea
  8. Feed some penguins
  9. Learn to cross stitch
  10. Perfect baking a macaron
  11. Go on a camping trip
  12. Get another tattoo
  13. Watch the sunrise at the beach
  14. Visit the Natural History Museum
  15. Go stargazing
  16. Practice meditation
  17. Lose 1.5 stone
  18. Do a UK comic con event
  19. Make pasta from scratch
  20. Go on a girls trip
  21. Grow my own fruit or vegetables
  22. Do a 30 day challenge
  23. Take a trip to the Lake District
  24. Have afternoon tea at The Ritz
  25. Watch The Sopranos
  26. Learn sign language
  27. Build a Lego set
  28. Face my fear of rollercoasters
  29. Have an all night movie marathon
  30. Do a scavenger hunt

So there we have it! No crazy skydiving scenarios, so sorry to disappoint you there, but a lot of these are things I’ve been saying I’ll do for quite some time and now feels like the right time to try and do them. I’ll most likely be sharing my experiences on here as I go so keep an eye out as I tick things off over the next 11 months!

What would be on your list? Let me know!
