8 Goals To Accomplish Before Turning 30 #31writenow

1. Move To California
Even if Cali might not be the state for me to call home, before 30 I plan to move there anyway. It's no longer a career move. It has become a personal goal.

2. Take Pole Dancing Classes
Pole dancing has been on my mind for a little over a year now. By the time I'm 30, it should happen. In fact I'm thinking about signing up this October, right before my 27th birthday.

3. Travel More
I feel like this traveling goal is going way too slowly. In 2011 I went to one new place, 2012 one new place, and this year I've been to one new place. I have to visit several spots before 30. In three years I don't want to have only hit up three spots outside of where I already live.

4. Make New Friends
No one ever told me how hard it would be to connect with new people after college. Everyone says the best way to get ahead is to have connections, but I think I've lost more friends than I've made. So within three years I have to build friendly bridges and make sure they don't burn.

5. Get A Passport
This goes with goal three. A blogger, Babs of Babs In Blogland, I met at Blogging While Brown mentioned an international bloggers trip to Belize. Even if I don't go with a bunch of bloggers, the idea of going is new and cool. Can this be done before I turn 30? The trip is for 2015. We'll see.

6. Write a book
I've made a couple manuscripts, but when I can raise enough money to really get published I'm going to write a book for real. Fresh Poems. Some short stories. A real purpose behind it all. For me. Not for you all. I want this to happen before I turn 30.

7. Fall In Love With Life
Author Darnella Ford is the best definition of this. She can find beauty in just about everything. Or maybe that's just my perception of her, but by 30 I want to be that way. I want to find beauty in everything I can touch and even things I can't touch, but know exists.

8. Step Out of My Comfort Zone
If I can achieve all the above, then my comfort zone will be broken. Have you ever felt like you were trapped in a box? Every now and then you get a peek at the outside world, but then you're forced back into that box. I want out to get out of the box for good.

I'll break some of this down more in another post. Do you have a list of things to do before 30? Have you started working on it? This is just the short version of my list, but there is a lot of work to do in three years.
