Forever 29??


I have a little over a year before I am 30. Years. Old. I am not coping with this well. To lots of people 30 shouldn’t be that big of a deal. “Wait til you hit 40” they say… I’m not about to start thinking about 40yet people.

To me, 30 is the age where you need to have already known yourself, already gotten out all the “omg I can’t believe I did that” and gotten it all together. It’s a time in my life when I’m ready to be a woman instead of a girl. That’s what scares the be-ge-bes out of me.

SO… I am making this list of 30 things I need to have done before I am 30. It’s a mash up of all things I have not done yet in my life. Some are geared towards letting me hang on to my 20’s, while others are prepping me to be a 30 year old woman.

1. Go on a road trip following Route 66
2. Get another tattoo
3. Hold a five minute conversation with a native in Spanish (I'm currently up to 45 seconds)
4. Start a blog
5. Conquer my irrational fear of spiders
6. 30 days no soda. Not even diet Started on 1-14-13
7. Watch a beautiful sunset in peace with no distractions
8. Take the train to St. Louis
9. Learn to knit a scarf
10. Finish vacation scrapbook started in 2010
11. Squat 100 lbs (1 set if 12)
12. Go to a concert and learn all the songs beforehand
13. Stay awake for 24 hours
14. Go to a pro sports game in full fan getup
15. Read (finish) 12 books --- ain't nobody got time for more than that
16. Have a moonlit picnic
17. Learn an organized sport and actually play in a game of it (I played both basketball
      and soccer as a kid & was so "good" they let me keep the bench warm)
18. Learn to shoot a gun with precision
19. Get another boxer puppy
20. Go 24 hours without my cell phone turned on (did this in '10 when I went to Mexico &
      then again when I went on a cruise in '11) I went 7 days with no phone.... I want to try it
      again, not bc of being out of the country
21. Ride my bike along the Katy Trail to Green Ridge and back

  1. So from experience I can tell you turning 29 is WAY harder then turning 30...for some reason once you get through turning 29 you're like 'yea I got this 30 thing' and also from experience- you don't need to be more "grown-up" at least I know I'm certainly not!I still have "omg I can't believe I did that" moments... in fact I just had one last week! ha... hang in there! I PROMISE 30 is not that bad and you can still act young & reckless despite the age!!

    PS- I was just checking the stats on my blog and saw that you were a major traffic source for me! Thanks SOO much for having me listed as one of your FAVS! You're the sweetest! Im adding your button to my side bar now... let me know if you ever want to do a guest post on my blog- I'm small but I'd still love to have you!

    1. HI Courtney! This is so good to hear that someone else has been through this. Your comment is helping me to realize I don't have to be so uptight about becoming 30... embrace it! Of course I'd love to do a guest blog. I am very new to blogging so lets do it!
