30 Things To Do Before I Turn 30

It's my birthday, y'all.  As I reflect on the last 24 years of my life, I realize that there are things I have not done yet.  In order to avoid a full-blown quarter-life crisis, I have compiled a bucket list of sorts: 30 Things To Do Before I Turn 30.  I will be blogging about each item as I slowly cross them off my list.

1. Earn a Bachelor's degree.
2. Get a tattoo.  Completed November 20, 2010
3. Travel abroad.
4. Commit to having blonde hair again.
5. Visit New York City.
6. Get vajazzled.
7. Splurge on a designer item.
8. Learn how to swim.
9. Get a credit card in MY name.
10. Drive on a major expressway. Completed February 15, 2011
11. Sing in a band.
12. Learn to cook a meal.
13. Embark on a romantic getaway.
14. Pay my own rent.
15. Take a dance class (and stick with it).
16. Start doing yoga. Completed October 26, 2010
17. Go to Lollapalooza.
18. Get paid to write.
19. Pose for a professional photographer.
20. Go to a drag club.
21. Touch the Pacific Ocean.
22. Eat a fried cheese stick.  (This is at the insistence of my sister.)
23. Catch a fish.
24. Participate in an activist march/rally.
25. Go to the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
26. Gamble.
27. Start a mini-garden.
28. Give blood.
29. Go to a shooting range and fire a gun.
30. Take a pole-dancing class.

So I've got six years to do all these things.  Time to get crackin'!


  1. I've surprisingly done most of those.
    1, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, and 28.
    And I am very conservative person when it comes to doing things, so this list is definitely doable.

  2. kaitlin, you need to get most of these done asap. i highly recommend lolla. and if you went on vacay with doug, you could catch a fish, gamble and go shooting within a 5 mile radius. it's fabulous.

  3. I would defiantly like to help you accomplish #13 and I guess you can use my car for #10 ;)
