Major Adulting: 30 Goals to achieve before I turn 30!

I decided as it’s my birthday, I should work out 30 goals to complete before I turn 30! It’s not actually that long before I turn 30 so this is going to be far from a bucket list for me – it will be more achievable things!

I have 2 years to complete this list and so there’s not likely to be any sky-diving or travelling around Africa on this list… So here goes!

1. Go to Iceland (and hopefully see the Northern Lights!)

3. Eat at a Michelin star restaurant

4. Go on a road trip somewhere new (where I am the driver) DONE

5. Visit a waxwork museum

6. Go camping in the middle of nowhere and watch the sunset and sunrise DONE

28. Throw a Harry Potter themed party – DONE

29. Attend a festival (music, food or otherwise) – I’ve not done this for too long! DONE

30. See in my 30th birthday in style!

So these are my 30 Goals!

I think these are do-able. They will make me push myself more but I don’t think they’ll stress me out too much trying to complete them!

What do you think? Can you recommend any ways to help me make sure I do this right?

Ready, set, GO!

  1. Good luck on all of your goals bby! <3 I know you can smash them 😀
    In terms of advice… There are loads of food festivals in Birmingham, and one 'digbeth dining' takes place every first Friday of the month I believe. I've heard good things about it! And I'd happily go camping with you 😀

    • There’s no problem starting at any time! Do something manageable to you. Set your goals and then whittle them down to make sure they’re achievable! That’s what I did because I know 2 years isn’t the longest time realistically! Thanks for your comment 🙂
