It's already two days into the new year and all I have done is watch a couple of movies and play a whole lot of card games. It would be kind of cool if that was a reflection of what this whole year will be like…laid back, relaxing, and worry-free. In fact, I have been so relaxed that I haven't even thought up any new year's resolutions yet! When I really think about it, all I want for 2014 is to remain happy and in love! Since those are pretty uninteresting "resolutions" I've decided to share this list of 30 things to do by age 30 that I have had written up for a while now. Since I'm just 22 years old there are a lot of pretty big things on my list and I encourage my fellow 20-somethings to create your own 30 by 30. I had fun thinking about my future goals and it's always a good idea to set a time you'd like to accomplish them by. I hope to share with you each time I get to make that satisfying checkmark!
