30 before 30

My birthday is in a week .... MY 29TH BIRTHDAY!! I'm going to freak out. The idea of turning 30 soon is scary to me. Especially when I see how much more successful other people are that are so much younger than I am. 

I think my worst quality is always comparing myself to others. I need to be comfortable with where I'm at in my life. My journey isn't the same as anyone else's. I also shouldn't feel "unsuccessful" because I've actually done quite well for myself. I have an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree from a good university, a Certificate from another good university, a full time job, 4 pets (no Mom, I did not get another cat .. I'm including the fish), a house, no debt besides said house - I'm doing great!

Even though I'm becoming more confident in where I am in my life, there's still some things I would love to do/experience before turning the big 3-0 next year.

1. Buy a new car ... at least new to me
2. Visit more of Canada
3. Blog full time and quit my 9-5
4. Run a 10k
5. Be in the best shape of my life
6. Create a capsule wardrobe
7. Have more than $5,000 in savings
8. Learn to knit and knit a scarf & blanket
9. Try hot yoga
10. Go on a road trip
11. Finish decorating my house
12. Read 10 books
13. Learn to cook
14. DIY my coffee table & 2 other pieces of furniture
15. Take a class just for fun
16. Go camping
17. Develop a skin care routine (cause I'm getting old, duh!)
18. Host a party
19. Wear lipstick
20. Start a YouTube channel
21. Finish writing half my novel
22. Organize my life
23. Be vegetarian for a month
24. Rebrand my blog
25. Attend a major sporting event
26. Send 5 handwritten notes/letters
27. Travel solo
