In Jan. 2013, I set out an ambitious list of 30 things I have to do by the time I turn 30 on April 30, 2015.
The list was full of things both expensive and time-consuming, or cheap and simple, that are somehow illustrative of a (still!) young person’s bucket list.
My plan was to blog through each goal as I nailed it.
I failed at keeping up. I failed at making the goals a priority. Utterly. And I haaaaate failing at things, like when I can’t finish season 2 of House of Cards (why does it suck?) or when I opt for the best and most terrible bed-time snack in the world: chocolate chips on spoonfuls of peanut butter. Failure.
Now, I had an excuse — a really, really good one that I’ve been using as my Ultimate Excuse for All Things: graduate school. When I finished my MLIS in December 2013 (more on that later), I took a big breather from life — I didn’t read, I watched TV, I lost interest in some of my favorite addictions (Twitter, Tumblr, Internet things) and even things that are allegedly good for my sanity like writing, drawing and yoga, or responding to emails within 2-3 business days.
No. More. Excuses. Reboot time.
It’s time to catch up with these 30 Under 30 goals. Time to hold myself accountable. I sort of have to because SHIT, I ONLY HAVE NINE MONTHS LEFT.
So I’m back. Let’s do this. Let’s do this real good now.
