30 Before 30

I’m 27 and in Peace Corps. People generally embark on a 2 year stint abroad fresh out of college…well I guess I’m a late bloomer. However doing this now sometimes makes me feel invincible. It makes me believe that the hardest part of achieving a goal, no matter how crazy, is starting.

Well I’m a few years shy of 30 and I’ve been seeing so many of these lists that I thought I’d jump on this bandwagon.  Here are 30 things (in no particular order) I want to accomplish by: March 15th, 2015. Feel free to hold me accountable. I’ll give updates as I complete the items on this list.
