Old/Boring/30 list


I need deadlines; if I made a list of things to do before I died, I’d never get it checked off. So instead, here is a list of things I want to do before I become old or boring, or turn 30. (I add things and cross them off as needed)

    • Go bungee jumping
    • Go skydiving
    • Go on a massive road-trip visiting all of the 48 states
    • Host a Derby Party (dressing like you are attending the Derby is required)
    • Live in a state or country other than (my home state) for three or more months
    • Complete NaNoWriMo or my own version thereof

    • Go couchsurfing
    • Learn to surf
    • Learn to snowboard
    • Rock climb El Capitan or Half-Dome (or both!)
    • Get published in/by a major publication or publishing group (the difference being that one is a magazine/newspaper, and the other would be a book)
    • Own a dSLR
    • Find and participate in and/or found a modern-day coffeehouse dedicated to the exchange of ideas
