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!
- Attend a life drawing session
- Eat at a Michelin starred restaurant
- Read at least 12 books
- Bake some bread
- Create my own comic book
- Take a trip somewhere new
- Go cold water swimming/have a dip in the sea
- Feed some penguins
- Learn to cross stitch
- Perfect baking a macaron
- Go on a camping trip
- Get another tattoo
- Watch the sunrise at the beach
- Visit the Natural History Museum
- Go stargazing
- Practice meditation
- Lose 1.5 stone
- Do a UK comic con event
- Make pasta from scratch
- Go on a girls trip
- Grow my own fruit or vegetables
- Do a 30 day challenge
- Take a trip to the Lake District
- Have afternoon tea at The Ritz
- Watch The Sopranos
- Learn sign language
- Build a Lego set
- Face my fear of rollercoasters
- Have an all night movie marathon
- 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!
