It sure made for interesting reading, and, pleasingly, I’m now able to tick off a few things without even having set out to achieve them. Hoorah! When I wrote this list, I wasn’t planning on making a conscious effort to achieve these tasks. It was more a way of me putting
Because this is the time, people! We’re told ALL. THE. TIME. that we MUST. NOT. waste the freedom that comes with youth, because otherwise we shall grow old with REGRETS! (And they’re the worst, aren’t they?) To quote five oh-so-wise young gentlemen, we need to "Live while we're young." Preach.
A lot of my list is cliché, somewhat superficial, perhaps overly ambitious and really rather cringey, but I don’t think that’s a problem. Equally, they’re not specifically things you need to be under 30 to achieve – of course not! Age is no barrier to life. I think I just wanted to set myself a little target. Only eight and a half years to go!
I love a good list. You probably know that. I have far too many of them. This isn’t a list of my life or even career goals, but just a fun little selection of experiences I’d like to have.
Some of them might make you think, ‘You’ve never done that? Really?’ And others may make you go, ‘Yeah, keep dreamin’, sweetheart. Like that’s going to happen any time soon…’ But a gal’s gotta dream, hasn’t she?
So, without further ado...

And there you have it! Safe to say I've got a way to go in achieving all this - any offers of help will be most gladly received! I'm pretty sure I could carry on listing things I want to do, places I want to visit and experiences I want to have for hours - my original list in actually longer - but I figured I'd stop at 30 (largely for the sake of this blog title.)
