30-Something Before 30 or Accountability to the Masses

I turn 30 in approximately 33 months. I thought I would create one of those popular 30-before-30 lists. Because I'm a bit of a slacker it might be good to give myself more than 30 months. And so, without further ado...

::30 Before 30::

1. Rent a fancy Winnebago (cash contingency plan- borrow my parents camper van for the weekend)

2. Visit a sixth continent- South America!

3. Submit an editorial to a major paper

4. Bake perfect French macarons

5. Own a custom upholstered sofa or chair

6. Perfect the crow pose in yoga

7. Sew a wearable dress

8. Ask a stranger out

9. Read the tattered copy of A Tree Grows In Brooklyn that I have been carrying around for the past 14 years

10. Tailor/hem all of my clothes so they fit properly

11. Take a road trip through “The South”

12. Grow vegetables and herbs and then eat them

13. Go on a photo scavenger hunt

14. Form and lead another support group

15. Relearn the subjunctive tense in Spanish

16. Get certified as an HIV counselor

17. Upkeep a blog for six months

18. Discover my cocktail of choice

19. Camp in Big Sur

20. Find the perfect Little Black Dress

21. Learn the names of the different kinds of clouds

22. Jog across the Golden Gate Bridge

23. Try ear candling

24. Go on a juice fast for three days

25. Take a digital photography/lighting class

26. Go internet-free for a week

27. Find the "right" shade of red lipstick

28. Closely follow a baseball team for a season

29. Get fitted for contacts

30. Take the ferry across the bay to Heath Ceramics and buy a seconds coffee mug
