30 Things to do Before I’m 30:

Bohemian Notebook may be a scattered blog, but many of the posts are rooted in this idea of “truly living.” Therefore, it seems appropriate to share with you all my own list of exorbitant to-do’s. I have said before, dreams deserve purpose; they deserve a plan; they deserve a deadline (before you are dead)! Maybe no one gets around to checking off an entire bucket-list, but by adding urgency, you transform dreams into goals. Consequently, you increase your likelihood of turning those dreams into real, tangible memories. So, by my 30th birthday (five and a half years away), I hope to be able to check each of these items off:

  1. As someone who seems incapable of making a Bucket List, or even a “30 Things to Do” list, I admire yours. I am secretly pleased that I’ve done some of the things on yours. 🙂 You’ve inspired me to try to think up a few things of my own. But what I’ve learned is that I’m pretty impatient and very self-prophecy-ish. As soon as I write something down, I almost feel compelled to go do it, and so rarely have anything on my “list.”
