30 by 30

One of my college roommates started a bucket list challenge recently. She has 30 things she wants to accomplish by the time she turns 30.  I was completely inspired by Jessica's list, so I decided to do the same. 
In the leadership class I took my senior year of high school, I was given an assignment to creat a life list.  I still have that list and added some things while in college.  There are 56 things on the original list; nineteen of which I have already accomplished.  I composed a new list of 30 things to do in the next seventeen months.  Only four of the things on my 30 by 30 are on the original list- mostly because there are a lot of travel related things that aren't financially feasible for me to do in less than two years.
So here it is.  My 30 by 30:

 1.          Complete a 5k*
  2.         Run the 5k Turkey Trot
  3.         Promote to 31 Senior Consultant
  4.         Go to California
  5.         Take a multi-state road trip spanning 1+ week
  6.         Weigh what I weighed when I graduated high school
  7.         Get my ESOL endorsement
  8.         Adopt a Middie Blythe
  9.         Do the Color Run
10.         Knit a pair of socks
11.         Pay off CC debt
12.         Pay off car
13.         Re-root Roslyn (ADG Blythe)
14.         Buy a DSLR
15.         Learn photoshop and/or illustrator
16.         Create my own “printables”
17.         Swim in the Pacific*
18.         Go vegan for a month
19.         Plant a fairy garden
20.         Read 18 banned books
21.         Tailgate at a football game
22.         Watch the top 20 AFI movies
23.         Do a 30 day “mile a day” challenge
24.         Finally take Matt parasailing*
25.         List something on Teachers Pay Teachers or Etsy*
26.         Take and pass the GK and Prof. Exams
27.         Attend a music festival
28.         HP movie marathon weekend (all 8 in 48 hrs)
29.         Make  a “fun” money savings plan/bank
30.         Update my blog more frequently (30+ times)

I actually started composing this list back in November.  I've already accomplished #21 and I will write another post about that. I also have various others in the works.  The four with asterisks are the things on my original list. 
My 30th birthday is Thursday, May 29, 2014. So in exactly seventeen months, I have high hopes to accomplish all of these things!
