30 Things To Do Before 30

There has been a lot of talk about goal-setting and bucket lists, and I’m usually rubbish at setting goals. I’ve seen a lot of people sharing their 30 Things To Do Before 30, and decided that I’m going to do one too.

I didn’t actually think it would be this hard!

I did the obligatory search on Pinterest and it suggested loads of things, some that I’ve already done (get a tattoo, see a theatre show, visit the Caribbean), and some that I just don’t want to do. A lot of people choose material things like buying a Chanel bag, or something about their love life. I’m not really that kind of girl so tried to choose life experiences.

It was so much harder than I thought it would be because I ran out of things to do at around number 20. As the list is kinda time-sensitive, I couldn’t choose expensive things because I’d have to save. It was also difficult because there were things that I felt like I had to choose because society told me to. But here at This January Girl, we’re all about learning how to Live Out Loud and be yourself unapologetically.

So here it is, my 30 Before 30 list.

    Absolutely love this list, Canada and the Northern Lights are definitely high up on mine too!
    Eating veggie for a week is super achievable too, I thought I would struggle but I’m about 10 years in now and have never looked back!

    These are fantastic things to have on your bucket list before 30! So adventurous too! Thank you for sharing. On my bucket list before 30, is definitely to own my own home. But with today’s climate not sure how well that is going to pan out. I might post this idea next year, I will be sure to tag yours in it, if that’s okay xx

      Can’t wait to read your post, it’s awesome to see other people’s goals. Fingers crossed to achieve them!
      Of course you can tag! I’d love that.
