30 Before 30

Person reading a book

After turning 25 this year I’m realising just how quick the years are going by. If you read my last post regarding my life you’ll know that I’ve been feeling a little lost and that I really want to start enjoying each day again and finding things I love. With 5 years in hand before I turn 30 I’ve started to think about things I’d like to achieve before I move into my third decade. So, I decided to knock up a 30 before 30 to help me move out of my comfort zone and fall in love with my life again.

1 | Get my TEFL qualification. I want to start helping some people in my community.

2 | Buy a house. This is a big one but I hope to get a foot on the property ladder and have a home that is my own.

3 | Become fluent in a foreign language. I dabble in languages but would love to become fluent and add a third to my list.

4 | Skydive. Anywhere. Anytime. Lets do this!

5 | Visit 10 new places. I have such a bad case of wanderlust. I have a few ideas of the places I would like to visit over the next couple of years but we will see what happens.

6 | Take some more pride in my every day appearance. I’ve never really cared about how I look but I would like to start putting a little more effort into my every day look.

7 | Start a book club. Whether this is offline or online, I don’t mind. I would love to host a book club to chat to people about all things literary.

8 | Graduate with my PhD. The wheels are in motion and I’m so flipping close now.

9 | Become more body positive. This is a big one for me that will take some work but I’m ready to start loving myself instead of punishing myself.

10 | Publish a book. I really want to collate all my poetry into a book to share.

11 | Get another piercing. Nothing wild – maybe just another one in my ear.

12 | Be a speaker at a conference. Although this is a terrifying one I would love to talk about my work/experiences in front of people who are actually interested.

13 | Learn how to surf. Because it seems ridiculous that I haven’t when I live by the coast.

14 | Make a Bake Off worth showstopper. Not being brave enough to actually apply for the show, I’d rather have my friends and family be the judges.

15 | Volunteer for a cause I believe in. I would really like to do some work with Mind since mental health is a cause close to my heart.

16 | Save £10 000. Any saving would be a bonus but go big or go home, right?

17 | Ride in a hot air balloon. I’ve heard they are technically safer than an airplane.

18 | Run the Disneyland Paris 10K. Look, I’m not one for running but this looks like it could be fun!

19 | Take a photography course. I’ve started to love being behind the camera so I think learning more could only be a good thing.

20 | Take singing lessons for musical theatre. Actually being examined and going through my grades would be the goal.

21 | Trek a well known trail. Either the Inca Trail or the Great Wall.

22 | Start my own business. Maybe it will be this blog or some other idea but I would love to be the brain behind something successful.

23 | Read 250 books. Read all the books!

24 | Spend all day at a spa. This would be perfect.

25 | Go on a ski holiday. We always go away to the warmest places but I would love to try a ski holiday and see if it is my type of trip.

26 | Experience acupuncture/cupping. I’ve heard so many positive things about both of these methods that I can’t help but want to try it.

27 | Watch a Wales international rugby game. Proud of the boys no matter what.

28 | Invest time in my blog and vlog. It is something I love and I want to be able to give more time to in order to see it flourish.

29 | Take a trip to Disney World and Universal. I’ve been saying this for years and seeing so many people visiting is making me envious!

30 | Get PADI certified. I love the water and being PADI certified means I’d be able to dive when I travel.

There you have it – my 30 before 30. There are some easy things on the list and others that may take a bit of time but with 5 years ahead of me I don’t think anything is impossible. Here’s to making the rest of my 20’s something to remember!

Whats on your bucket list?
