30 Things To Do Before 30, And More Lists

So, I made my list finally. It is of 30 things I want to do before turning 30. I got some suggestions from people on fb and here, and I took some and I am keeping some as future references for goals, but this is the list. I want to mention that I reserve the right to remove any of these that I want as long as I replace it with something that I I want to do even more. Don't judge if that happens - you are here to support me, not judge. Without further ado, here is the list:

1.       Run another 5k – get a better time than before
2.       Run a 10k
3.       Re-read the BoM
4.       Re-read the Bible
5.       Go somewhere else tropical – a cruise?
6.       Go through the temple
7.       Publish a work of fiction (self-publishing okay if time runs out!)
8.       Be kissed on New Years at midnight
9.       Be healthier – exercise much more!!
10.   Get out of debt (or be well on the way)
11.   Get into PA school (or well on the way)
12.    NaNoWriMo – finish it again

16.   Learn to crochet
17.   Recreate a photo from my childhood
18.   Learn how to play the guitar
19.   Make (start?) a quilt
20.   Move out of my parents house
21.   Get HCA certified
22.   Take a dance class
23.   Go to a concert for someone I haven’t seen yet
24.   Write letters to Grandparents
25.   Go on an overnight trip by myself
26.   Take a yoga class
27.   Keep in better touch with friends – try at least once a month to communicate everyone
28.   Do a 30 day photo challenge
29.   Paint a self-portrait
30.   Write and send a letter to a favourite author

So I made a list of 50 things that I have done so far in my life. This is probably not comprehensive - it is just what I have thought of, but I thought it was a good start.
