30 things to do in my 30th Year

I’ve never given much thought to turning thirty as I certainly don’t look it and don’t really feel it either in a lot of respects. Also, because I wasn’t raised in America I think all the jokes and worries that come along with turning 30 have never affected me, it’s just an age. So to celebrate it I was inspired to make a list of 30 things to do whilst 30 which begins February 17, 2004.

Here are the things I’ve come up with:

  1. Karaoke
  2. Move out of my current city to a fabulous one
  3. Buy no cards but instead, make them all for everyone and all occasions
  4. Sew something
  5. Learn to ask for help when needed.
  6. Sleep 8 hours.
  7. Get some style.
  8. Go somewhere warm in February
  9. Use camera to sell photography
  10. Look after my nieces for a weekend
  11. Create an indulgent bed
  12. Read at least a book a week
  13. Connect more with others in my city
  14. Buy some jewellery, particularly earrings (I haven’t worn earrings except when I got my ears pierced at 12)
  15. Do a hand stand
  16. Have a successful garden
  17. Have a spa weekend at some plush hotel where I can watch movies, get massaged and nap.
  18. Knit a scarf
  19. Create a home that I adore.
  20. Learn more, break through fears and take more risks
  21. Have a birthday cake (I’ve never had one for myself!)
  22. Buy and wear a pair of jeans
  23. Fly a plane
  24. Create a chic style
  25. Have breakfast in bed
  26. Wear ballet slippers
  27. Have a picnic
  28. Grow Tulips
