"Things to do before 30" - The adventure List!
After a little research and some frightening tales from my "new parent" friends I decided enough was enough. I may not have instructions for this 20-something adventure but by gum I'm certainly not going to stand around waiting to die*.
So I've decided to do what many other organised, motivated and procrastinating folk would do and make a list of all the things I want to do before I turn 30. It seems there are many other bloggers out there who have done the same and had amazing success and an even better time so, here I go! Enthusiastic and with a very quiet Friday night ahead of me.
I've started the list off with some of the more predictable ideas:
Learn wine tasting
Choose a religion (and try to stick to it)
Learn a foreign language
Visit Amsterdam (for the museums, art and culture obviously!)
Do a charity sporting event
Buy a car/house/pet (I still drive around in the tin can "hand-me-down" I passed in and park it on my parents driveway)
I want my list to really reflect me and include some of the things I've dreamed about; not just the things offered to you on an 18-30's holiday, so to the ...
Live in a foreign country - even just for a short while
Quit my job and try doing something I love (this one scares me even as I type it)
Perform one of my songs at a real gig (not just to my friend Lee when drunk)
Start a business venture - even in these bad financial times
I'm still adding to the list now but am making a start ticking things off as I go.
I'll be updating on my progress but as an 80's glam rock band once said:
"I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time
Here I go again!"
