30 by 30 Update

It's 2014, the year I turn 30. Crazy. But I'm in good company. Here are some other things that turn 30 this year:
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • Tetris
  • The Cosby Show
  • The Mac
  • TED (that one's for AJ)
  • Transformers
  • The Karate Kid
  • Footloose
  • Muppet Babies
  • Ghostbusters

Not bad.

In 2010, I set myself a list of goals. 30 things I wanted to accomplish by the time I'm 30. Now that I've only got about 6 months left, I should probably see what kind of work I've got left to do. Here's what I had left as of my last update. You can see the full list here.

  • Serve at a soup kitchen at Christmastime – not a soup kitchen, but I did man a Salvation Army kettle and spend a few hours cleaning bathrooms and sorting foot at the Food Bank
  • Take a wine tour – AJ took me to Johnson's Cranberry marsh last year for geocaching and wine
  • Bungee jump – Not yet. Not sure if this will happen this year.
  • Road trip down the California coast – Yes! It was awesome.
  • Scuba dive – Nope, hopefully next vacation will be a tropical destination. Also, probably not this year.
  • Go on a short term missions trip with AJ – This is probably on hold until our child(ren - to be soon we hope) are a little older
  • Weigh 160 –
  • Read the favourite book of at least one friend each year – This has been fun. I actually did several a year and am going to do at least one more in 2014.
  • Spend New Year’s downtown in a big city – Too late for this year, add it to the 40 by 40 list.
  • Learn to drive stick (better) – I haven't practised in a while. This is definitely do-able before the end of July.
  • Recover the dining room chairs – This is just me being lazy. It can be done.
  • Be in a play – I would still love to, but I don't think I have the time margin right now. 40 by 40.
  • So I have 8 left, 2 of which are likely to still happen. 24/30 ain't bad right?

    I'm going to have to start thinking about that 40 by 40 list. If you have any suggestions, send them my way!
