30 Before 30 | My Goals

Hello, beauties! It's no secret that I turned 28 a couple of weeks ago. In fact, my mother never fails to remind me just how close I'm creeping to the dreaded 3-0 (she finds this HI-larious). When I stop to think about all the things I've done in my life, though proud, I feel like I should have done more. Growing up poor, I didn't have as many opportunities as other kids, but I feel like I've made the most out of what I have.

However, now that I'm an adult, and especially now that I'm getting close to 30, I feel like I have the chance to really step out and add a few more experiences under my belt. Inspired by other people's 30 Before 30 posts, I decided that creating a tangible list of 30 things I want to do before 30 would be a way to set some realistic goals for the next two years! After careful consideration, here are my 30 goals for the next two years.

1. Get my passport.
2. Learn to make sushi.
3. Get a second tattoo.
4. Buy a house. (Completed 11/07/2014)
5. Grow the blog to 5000 followers.
6. Hit my goal weight (and stay there).
7. Take a cruise.
8. Attend a blogging event.
9. Pay off a debt.
10. Have dinner at a five star restaurant.
11. Adopt a pet from a shelter.
12. Spend a day at a spa.
13. Take a long weekend in Washington DC.
14. Go to the top of the Empire State Building.
15. Craft my perfect skincare routine.
16. Cultivate a wardrobe that I love.
17. Feed the tigers at Carolina Tiger Rescue.
18. Tour the Biltmore Estate.
19. Rent a cabin for a weekend.
20. See the leaves turning in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
21. Visit Williamsburg, VA during the holiday season.
22. Cross the Mile High Bridge.
23. Go to King's Dominion.
24. Take in dinner and a show at Medieval Times.
25. Attend a murder mystery dinner.
26. Go to Dollywood.
27. Ride a train.
28. Start a YouTube channel.
29. Reach 40,000 gamer points on XBOX Live. (Don't judge!)
30. Ride one of the world's top 10 tallest and fastest rollercoasters. (One is opening here next spring!)

I'm really excited to work towards all these goals! They're all things I've been wanting to do for ages, but always thought I just wouldn't have the time. Well, now I'm taking control and giving my life a little upgrade! Time to take the bull by the horns and go out there and create the life I want. The only way I fail is by not doing, right? And since I only have two years to complete the list, it means I'll need to get started soon! So, stay tuned and wish me luck!

Do you have a 30 Before 30 list? What are some of your goals?

Stay gorgeous, peaches!
