30 Goals Before 30

Hello stranger, do you remember me? (Wow doesn’t that come off creepy!) It’s been two years since I last posted on my blog. Two years ago this blog had gone through an identity crisis; every 3 months the domain name changed along with the focus that I wanted this blog to have. It took me some time to step back and really think about what I wanted to do with this blog. At first I wanted to be a pure fashion blog, then a pure sewing blog, thrifting, sewing, consumerist beauty, natural beauty, etc! But in the end, why would it matter if my blog had a specific theme? In the end, it’s MY blog.

So….. what am I getting at?

Bluntly said, I am going to post whatever I want! Pretty much anything that will get me to post more: memories I’ve had traveling, conversations, recipes, makeup tips, crap I  bought. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING! This blog is a medium for me to share what’s happening with my life to my loved ones down in SoCal. I know, I know, SoCal is not that far away from NorCal but I wanted to leave a footprint so that maybe the shy long-lost friend will know that I’m doing just dandy. 🙂

And what I want to post with you today, is a list that is special to me. I’ve been doing these birthday goals on-and-off since I turned 22 years old and I’m back on again with a list of things I want to do before I turn the dirty thirty (why is it so dirty?).

1. Run a 10k
2. Run a Half Marathon
3. Run a Full Marathon
4. Get to a healthy weight
5. Get a new education certificate
6. Apply to a PhD program
7. Apply to law school
8. Apply to business school
9. Participate in a programming/coding competition
10. Do 100 burpees in a row
11. Hold a plank for 5 minutes
12. Visit 3 countries
13. See the Northern Lights
14. Sew a dress from scratch
15. Learn to make macarons
16. Host a coffee cupping session
17. Blog about coffee roasting
18. Brew sake
19. Brew beer
20. Ferment kambutcha
21. Save up for a down payment for a home
22. Contribute to an Open Source project
23. Do a math problem at least 4 times a week
24. Transition to DIY and safer cosmetics
25. Make my own soap, shampoo, and conditioner (bath products)
26. Go on a 3 month “no buy” on cosmetics
27. Grow/garden my own herbs
28. Hike half dome
29. Go wine tasting in France
30. Buy a house OR have a baby

Now that you’ve reached the bottom of this list, note that there are a few goals that are very ambitious. I’m sure that by the time I turn 30 I won’t accomplish them but I hope to make really good progress towards it.

…you are darn right that I will post progress here. ^_^

    I think if you believe in yourself you can accomplish much…just don’t sweat if you don’t accomplish them all. I have a book I write 9 things I want to accomplish that day (because there are nine spaces…lol) whether it’s brush my teeth to writing a pen pal to homeschooling my nephew that day…I check off what got done. If something didn’t I don’t beat myself up I say I’ll try for it tomorrow and it goes in the list again. 🙂 good luck!!!
