30 by 3-0

I have seen variations of this list on others’ blogs: the one whose inspired mine: Caitlin Muir.

However, I decided instead of making a list of things to check off, I would make a list by adding the things I experience or accomplish by the big 3-0. (My goal is at least 30 by 30.) I figure I’ll let life take me by surprise. An asterisk (*) will mark those that were on my bucket list, and a + next to the things that especially take me by surprise. The rest will just be :o)
