30 Before 30

So.  I turned 29 on the 4th of July.  (You may have seen or heard the fireworks - I hope it wasn't too alarming.  People get kind of excited about my birthday.  I try and tell everyone not to make such a big deal, but...)


Anywho - I guess these 30 Before 30 lists may be kind of overdone, but you know I can't resist a good list.  Particularly a list of goals! 

So here's what I'd like to accomplish in the next year:

1. Run a 10k
2. Finish my WIP
3. Buy a kayak and paddle 3 different rivers
4. Get CPR certified
5. Take a class in something I've never tried before
6. Take a trip to a state I've never visited
7. Go see a play or musical
8. Have our wedding pictures made into an album
9. Reorganize/update filing cabinet
10. Make an emergency kit (in case of zombie attacks, etc.)
11. Pay off one student loan
12. Call or write my little sister at least twice a month
13. Purchase one piece of original art
14. Talk to both my grandmothers about their life story and take notes
15. Climb a mountain - any mountain - to the top
16. Go to 10 yoga classes
17. Do something fun in Boston that I've never done before
18. Save $5,000
19. Learn to use a sewing machine
20. Frame my diplomas before they get lost or waterstained or something
21. Make my bedroom my favorite room - cozy, simple, light
22. Make my office an inspiring space
23. Take myself out on a really lovely date
24. Find "my style" and begin to create a coherent wardrobe
25. Pay it forward to a stranger
26. Go TV-free for a week
27. Send 5 people gifts just because
28. Read 50 books
29. Hang art in every room in the house
30. Do something very, very cool for my 30th birthday

Well, if nothing else, I don't think I'll be bored this year.  :)  What's on your life list?

Happy belated 4th!!
