T-minus 382 Days

The big 3-0 is about 382 days away. Its terrifying (I’m not getting any younger) and thrilling at the same time. 382 days of endless possibilities, adventures, and just plain living.

Here is a list of 30 things I’d like to accomplish in the next 382 days. Some are really basic and others are more challenging, but all are realistic. I think for the most part, they all seem to fall within my larger goal to take more risks. Onwards!
