30 by 30 {2 year update}

My 29th birthday has come and gone. That means I have one year left to finish out my 30 by 30 list. I think I’m a tad bit discouraged about completing some items on the list so I have not been concentrating very hard on completing items. I really need to crack down. A year will go by fast…

Here is my 30 by 30 list:

  1. open an Etsy shop {completed 7.25.13}
  2. get in shape so that I feel comfortable with my body
  3. get a teaching job
  4. buy a house
  5. get a new car {completed 1.19.13}
  6. have a baby
  7. go on a vacation {completed 11.24.13 – 12.1.13}
  8. take a photography class {completed online 2.24.14} {would still like to do a class in person}
  9. get my reading specialist certification {received reading &writing teacher certification 7.30.13 – all I can get until employed as specialist}
  10. learn to be a better cook
  11. learn to make a really good whoopie pie
  12. plan a surprise weekend away for Dan {completed 2.24.13 – 2.26.13}
  13. adopt a dog
  14. get at least one new tattoo {completed 4.15.12}
  15. make scrap books for bridal shower, bachelorette party, wedding, and honeymoon {bridal shower completed 3.4.12}
  16. take a road trip
  17. learn to make DeDe’s chocolate chip cookies {1st attempt 3.1.12} {2nd attempt 4.21.12}
  18. hike a mountain that is around 4000 feet {completed 8.12.12}
  19. run the BCS 5k {completed 9.15.12}
  20. go skiing more than once a winter {completed 2.3.13}
  21. learn to use photoshop/picasa/picmonkey to edit photos well
  22. stay at a bed and breakfast for a weekend {completed 6.1.12 – 6.4.12}
  23. do a wine tasting and figure out what wines I really like
  24. take a girl’s trip
  25. learn my family history
  26. spend time volunteering every year
  27. make photo books with old pictures
  28. take a “kids” trip
  29. complete the portsmouth community road race series {completed 10.12.13}
  30. have a fantastic celebration for my 30th birthday

The last time I wrote about my 30 by 30 list was 6 months ago at the half way point. There have been a few things completed since then and some are still being worked on. Some are still up in the air as to whether or not they will be able to be completed.

Currently being worked on:

  1. get in shape so that I feel comfortable with my body {currently working out almost every day and trying to eat healthier}
  2. get a teaching job {applying all the time}
  3. learn to be a better cook
  4. learn to make a really good whoopie pie
  5. take a road trip {planning one with Dan for the spring}
  6. learn to use photoshop/picasa/picmonkey to edit photos well
  7. take a girl’s trip {planning one for the summer}
  8. learn my family history
  9. spend time volunteering every year
  10. make photo books with old pictures {making a book for each year that I have pictures – definitely in the process}

Some of the items still depend on whether or not I get a teaching job and I really hope that happens this year. If not, hopefully I can find some other kind of job that will work better for me than what I am doing now.

I’m going to print out this list so that I can remember to keep plugging away. Some of the things take some practice and I just need to keep them in mind. I’m going to enjoy the last year of my 20’s and I hope finishing this list will be a big part of that.

  1. You’ve still achieved a great many things in the last couple of years, probably more than you would have if you didn’t write the list, so you should be proud of yourself! x

    • I am proud of what I have done so far, definitely. And I do think this has helped me accomplish things I probably never would’ve thought of otherwise. So whether I finish everything or not, it is still an accomplishment. Thanks Hannah!
