30 By 30


Ok, I have been reading other people's lists of what they want to achieve or get done by a certain age and I thought seeing as I just turned 27 i would make a list of 30 things I want to get done or achieve by 30. They range from simple things like learning how to sew through to going overseas to Fiji, but all of them I really want to do, and I am hoping this will be a nice way to motivate myself, as I love making lists, and I love crossing things off lists even more! So, in case I loose the written one, this will be my record!

1. Buy & Learn how to use a sewing machine
2. Fix our home loan (this I want to do in the next few weeks)
3. Get a new kitchen
4. Get a new bathroom
5. Get the roof insulated
6. Landscape the backyard and turn it into a proper outdoor entertaining area
7. Make myself a skirt and wear it out!
8. Knit a pair of socks
9. Finish my knitted patchwork blanket
10. Climb the Harbour Bridge
11. Go to the Northern Territory
12. Get a new car
13. Dye my hair black
14. Archive all my photos on a portable hard-drive Update: in the process of scanning in all film photos to archive
15. Go deep-sea fishing
16. Play paint-ball
17. Make $1.5 million in sales in one FY at work
18. Get a new DSLR
19. Get more lenses for my DSLR
20. Read 200 books Update: have currently read over 35 books, so doing well
21. See Coldplay live
22. Write a short story
23. Pay off the credit card Update: Have now split credit card and doing Very good job paying one of them off
24. Swap over and re-arrange the spare bedrooms
25. Un-pack every last box in the house
26. Got to Tasmania
27. Go Overseas*
28. Organise and maintain a proper filing system where filing is done more than once a year at tax time!
29. Re-paint the house and fill it with colour
30. Get pregnant

Update #1 - 29/09/09

*Update #2 - 19/01/10 - You may or may not have noticed, I have actually changed #27 from Go to Fiji to Go Overseas. Due to some developments, overseas is going to be achievable which makes going back to Fiji unachievable.

  2. I was listening to it on the radio and I so wanted to be there! I even had free tix that my Dad got but I couldn't use them as I already had something on that I couldn't get out of! I was so annoyed!

  3. I reckon that seems a rather reasonable list!!

  4. I need to do one of these lists too, but it would just depress me when I got to 30 and hadn't managed to do anything off my list!

    Our filing is the same. Drives me nuts any time we have to find something.

  5. That is a hefty list - better get the hairdying out of the way before pregnancy rears its head! (And trust me - black hair dye is addictive. I ude "darkest brown" so it is easier to get out if I ever have a hormonal breakdown and need to...)
