I’m turning 30 on Memorial Day. My thirtieth is a National Holiday—you’re welcome, take the day off!
I’ve got a fun day/ weekend planned with friends, and plans for a whole new decade! I’m not great at maintaining resolutions or anything, but man, do I love a check off list. So I made one! For my 30th year, I present to you my Thirty for Thirty bucket list, Part One
(10 at a time seemed like a more manageable bite).
- Run 3 5ks
I already have one in mind– Wine at the Line, which I’ve done the past 3 years. So that leaves 2 more for me to find. If you’ve got a local suggestion, let me know!
- Save $1000
It’s only $83.33 a week. Doable, right? I just need to build up my emergency fund, which is what I mean with this one. Tips on how to stop impulse spending are welcome.
- Learn 12 new recipes
That’s one a month. Something beyond my limited kitchen skills. I’d like to shy away from sweets, too, because I am a pretty good baker, I just need more time in the cooking department. Also, see the above goal of saving money. This saves you money, riiiiight?
- Support local more
I’m not sure how to quantify this, so just a general feeling? Buy at a local store or eat at a local restaurant instead of ordering online or eating at a chain. Bam.
- Find best probiotic for me
I use this one right now, and it works pretty well. I also love kombucha. Maybe some combination of these? Are you supposed to rotate? Or stick with one and love it forever? Maybe I’ll do more research. Maybe I’ll write a post…
- Start a blog
Done! So this one will transform more into maintaining and creating regular content. Basically, keep it up!
- Repaint the porch
This is an around-the-house-to-do, but I figured those belonged on this list, too. I have a house now! Time to home maintain Grey Cottage like an adult-figure.
- Create a garden
I tried a garden once, in my apartment complex. My 10×10 plot was overrun with thistles, but I did get one beautiful tomato out of the whole thing. I guess the goal here would be exceed one tomato in output.
- Start a Bullet Journal
Also done! I’ll definitely be posting about this, it is my new favorite thing/my brain in physical form (or the thoughts in physical form… I don’t know). Anyways. I love it and it’s the best and
everyone should bullet journalI just want everyone to be happy and journal forever. Maintain this and write some posts here about it, that’s what this is all about.
- Workshop with Joy the Baker
Oh hi, I’m OBSESSED with Joy the Baker. I’m determined to make her my best friend, but I have to meet her first!
Okay, so all general creepiness aside, I’ve wanted to go to New Orleans forever, and I truly dig Joy the Baker, so why not two birds with one stone? My preferences are her workshops on brunch or pies, and NOT during the summer. I am a delicate flower in the heat. I wilt. I die. I probably suck at pies.
