30 by 30: The Final Recap

Well it happened, I've turned 30.

Interestingly, the closer I got to it, the less scary it was. I've accomplished some pretty big things on my unwritten life list. Married, child, job in my field, house, car, done some travelling. I think 30 will be ok. 40, now that's scary, but that's for another post.

Time to recap my 30 by 30 list, originally posted 4 and a half years ago.

  1. Blow up at least 3 of our own photos to use at art in the new house
  2. Make a calendar in Photoshop to give as Christmas gifts
  3. Teach Snax a new trick
  4. Serve at a soup kitchen at Christmastime
  5. Take a wine tour
  6. Play ice hockey
  7. Try (and hopefully enjoy) running
  8. Bungee jump
  9. Road trip down the California coast
  10. Scuba dive
  11. See the Goo Goo Dolls in concert
  12. Go on a short term missions trip with AJ
  13. Weigh 160
  14. Read the favourite book of at least one friend each year
  15. Spend New Year’s downtown in a big city
  16. Read the Harry Potter series
  17. Spend a day painting on canvas
  18. See the Grease musical
  19. Take kickboxing
  20. Learn to drive stick (better)
  21. Go white water rafting
  22. Pay off our debts
  23. Recover the dining room chairs (didn't do this, but we got new chairs so sort of the same?
  24. Learn to sew so I don’t have to get my mom to fix my buttons
  25. Get a great permanent job
  26. Buy a design program (probably Photoshop)
  27. Host a family Christmas
  28. Bake a pie from scratch
  29. Be in a play
  30. Have a baby
7 to-do's left undone. Almost 80% isn't bad I guess. Most of what's left is travel related and some of the other items (like buying a house, having a baby, paying off debts) kind of took priority over those. So overall, I'm pretty proud of myself.

But that means, dun dun duhhhh, it's time for a 40 by 40 list. Being 40 seems crazy right now, but hopefully by the time it comes, I'll feel the same way as 30.

I am currently working on my list of 40 things and will post my to do list soon. Feel free to send me any suggestions.

Goodbye 20's, I'll miss you.
