Abby’s 30 Before 30 List

30 before 30 list

I’ve never made a list quite like this before, but I was inspired after having a conversation with my much older friends (JK you guys, they’re only a year and a half older), but they’re all turning 30 next year. Some of them are freaking out, some are quite content. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to feel once I’m a few months from 30. Will I be fine? Will I have a life crisis? TBD.

My birthday is next month and I’ll be turning 28. I’ve seen many people create these ‘bucket lists’ and I always thought they were kind of lame. Yet here I am today, pondering over ideas of trips, activities, etc. that I would like to accomplish before I turn the big 3-0. It was actually quite difficult coming up with 30 things (I’m more of a Top 5er), but I tried to make it as realistic as possible. At the same time, I really don’t think I’ll care if there are a few items that don’t get crossed off by the time I turn 30. So, maybe I will be just fine?

I have exactly two years and 50 days to try to complete as many as these amazing items as I can. Check out what I came up with (they all have some amount of thought behind them) and enjoy some pictures of me on my recent travels!
