Life List

Checking in on my 30 things to do before I'm 30 list... I'm a little more than halfway through but only have one and a half years to go... uh oh. Some of these things are almost definitely not happening in the next year and a half and some of them I'm not really interested in anymore (I did write the list 8 years ago, things have changed a little since then)... but its still interesting to see how I've progressed.

  1. Yea!!! It's exciting to cross things off a list. Sometimes I make lists of really easy things so that I can have the satisfaction of crossing things off. Like, "wake up", "have a shower" & "eat a healthy lunch." :) I guess my real list of things to do would have to be '40 things to do before I'm 40', eh? Woah...I'm old.

  2. I used to write lists a lot when I was juggling school/work/etc/etc but my list making has waned in recent years. Maybe I should start up again because I have not been feeling very productive lately....
