30 by 30

Sunday was my 26th birthday. In honor of the occasion, I thought I would post my 30 by 30 list, originally posted last year around my birthday. I have updated accordingly (in green).

  1. Finish my MA degree (3 more classes!).
  2. Become a mother (on the road to adoption).
  3. Visit a new country (went to Japan–summer 08 ).
  4. See (for the first time) a white sandy beach with clear, blue water (saw some white sand but definitely not the clear water).
  5. Go to California.
  6. Participate in a foreign mission trip (I’d love to make this happen summer 09).
  7. Support a child through Compassion International or a similar organization.
  8. Go to Disneyworld.
  9. Donate several more times to Locks of Love.
  10. Take a photography class.
  11. Sell a painting (for more than just the cost of supplies) (I had a painting that sold at a charity auction, but I am holding out for an actual customer).
  12. Have my own business.
  13. Learn how to drive a vehicle with a stick shift.
  14. Become skilled at shooting.
  15. Purchase a gun (or I guess someone could give one to me).
  16. Get my concealed handgun license.
  17. Own a Scottie dog.
  18. Become a regular volunteer for a local organization.
  19. Participate in a book club.

  22. Get a second hole pierced in my ears.
  23. Actually finish the AFI Top 100 Movies list.
  24. See a Broadway show.
  25. Read at least 10 books a year (it was more than 10 this year).
  26. See the Grand Canyon.
  27. Learn to sew.
  28. Move.
  29. Play tennis regularly–maybe even be in a league.
  30. Organize my mother & grandmother’s old family photos–possibly even scrapbook them.
