nesting * geeking * critiquing

Short-Term Goals

I’ll turn 30 next February <gag>.  To be perfectly honest, I’m not expecting to take it very well.

Here are some things I’d like to do in the next 8 months or so to get me excited (read: a list I’ll no doubt fail to complete).

30 by 30

  • Make at least 20 recipes from Pinterest
  • Successfully ice a cake using homemade fondant
  • Visit a farmer’s market
  • Use my apron patterns to make cute, retro aprons
  • Work down to my goal weight (losing about 25 pounds)
  • Watch the Lord of the Rings movies
  • Attend a geek convention, preferably as part of a work assignment
  • Read all 7 Harry Potter books (I’m stuck in the middle of book 2)
  • Attend a marathon of the Twilight films before the last one releases
  • Meet a famous person
  • Go to Disney World
  • Enter a contest (something competitive, not just a prize drawing)
  • Move into a new house (yes, this one is a bit of a cheat)
  • Take a flying lesson (my parents bought me one for my last birthday)
  • Grow back my eyebrows completely (that’s a story for another day)
  • Hike in a national park
  • Meet a real-life elephant (close enough to touch it, not just take a picture)
  • Zip line
  • Eat at a new restaurant/order something that I wouldn’t ordinarily
  • Volunteer for a charity event
  • Refurbish a piece of furniture
  • Get the Stormtrooper tattoo I really like
  • Make a King’s Cake for next Epiphany
  • Take a picture every day for a month and blog it
  • Wear the same article of clothing to work every day for a week
  • Have new family photos taken
  • Play my trumpet in a small ensemble at church
  • Try shooting a gun
  • See more of the Pacific Northwest (I’m thinking Oregon sounds pretty awesome)
  • Put together a 2,000-piece (or more) puzzle by myself

    • I’d have to be the only person to enter in order to be a contender 🙂
