Bucket List: 30 Things To Do Before I’m 30

, , Leave a comment

As you know the past few months have been pretty challenging for me, especially mentally. Therefore to refocus myself I wanted to give myself some goals to work towards and give myself things to look forward to. So I came up with a mini bucket list of things I want to do before I’m 30. That gives me just under 3 years to get my ass moving.

My dad used to always say “Don’t spend your life wishing it away” and while I do try and live by that it can be hard sometimes. You can find yourself wishing the day to be over, or wishing you were anywhere but where you are – either physically or mentally.

There’s a big world out there and we’d be absolutely crazy to not want to explore and I’m definitely guilty of wanderlust so this definitely not exhaustive but doable for sure. I’m a nostalgic person so it’s obvious there’s a lot of experiences in here too. I hope you enjoy reading.
