'30 for 30s'

Last year for my 30th birthday I put together a list of 30 things I wanted to do in my 30th year. I knew I wouldn't get to all of them, but I thought it would be a fun way to get myself to try new things and make the most of the year. I ended up completing a lot of my list and really enjoyed the process. You can see the list and read the 30 for 30 recap here

I turned 31 this year and decided to start a new list. This list is 30 things I want to complete in my 30s. I plan on updating/refreshing the list for my birthday each year, so it probably should be called 30 for 31, but that doesn't sounds as good. The list is a combination of items rolled over from last year, repeats of completed items, and some new ideas. I'll update this page as I cross items off the list.
