30 before 30

30 before 30

If you search on Pinterest for inspiration for goals/ new year’s resolutions at least half the results will be 30 before 30 lists. That is because, as we all know, once you hit thirty your life is over. You cease to be a young person and therefore your achievements stop being impressive or fulfilling. But I like the idea of a decade by decade list to make wilder requests of myself than can be achieved in the space of a year.

By the time I’m putting together this list, I am already 26, and in the midst of an Pandemic that’s going to last an indeterminable amount of time, so trying to be realistic.
