30 by 30

I’ve seen various people try to complete some of their bucket list (of strangely random things) by the time they turn 30. I started this list after I graduated and started working. Here’s my list of 30 things I want to do before I turn 30 – in no particular order. As I finish them, I’ll be putting the links to the post I talk about my experience (if there is one).
