Everyone seemed to be enjoying 1.11.11. We all know the REAL special day will be 11.11.11 which also happens to be MY 30th BIRTHDAY! Now, I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a little weird entering my 30's - I still think of myself as a 25 year old but I'm excited to enter a new decade with a bang!
That being said- I recently came upon these two blog posts which I just loved and inspired me to make a list of 30 things to do before 30! Here we go...
1- shoot a roll of film a week
2- scan in all of my negatives (holy cow)
3- visit friends in Europe
4- take the remaining 3 classes I need for my degree
5- keep learning French
6- drink less soda
7- learn to cook a few meals
8- drink less sugar in coffee and tea
9- write more letters
10- be better about answering my phone
11- work on two new calendars
12- get a lomo lca (I want one so badly!)
13- blog once a week
14- write in my physical journal more
15- create books with keepsakes from our trips
16- make a phone photo book
17- make a phone photo book for tessa
18- visit new york again (and photograph it well!)
19- portraits of my family in puerto rico
20- go to puerto rico!
21- photograph the houses I lived in in Florida
22- get out to the wonderful Chicago museums more
23- drink more water
24- look people in the eye more during conversations
25- teach our rabbits tricks (it's possible!)
26- visit Mel & Juls in San Francisco
27- explore more neighborhoods
28- display photos in a gallery of some sort
29- take a trip with my mom
30- read a book a month
I realize my ambitions aren't monumental but hopefully I can achieve most of my goals. I've got ten months to work on it! Do you have a list like this?
