30 Things to do Before 30

I’ll be thirty in a little over three years.

I can’t believe it myself! It sounds so weird when I say the number out loud. It makes me wonder where my youth went and how did time fly by so fast. It worries me that I still don’t know if I have the right job or if I have the right partner or where exactly my life is going! The tension is high but I’m happy and excited with every adventure life is taking me. Following this positive outlook in life, I have made a list of thirty things I want to do before I hit 30.

  1. Work abroad
  2. Travel more! Go to Europe or Japan or South Korea
  3. Get a driver’s license and learn how to drive –> Done! Read my review and experience.
  4. Buy own house or condominium –> Turnover is in January 2018!
  5. Get published! –> Done! Read here
  6. Go to Mindanao.
  7. Gain at least 20% in the stock market
  8. Start a business
  9. Go to a casino.
  10. Weigh at least 130 lbs (ideal weight for my height) and maintain it.
  11. Volunteer again
  12. Donate old clothes –> Done! I donated a ton of stuff at Caritas Manila
  13. Join a run –> Done! I joined one last February. 711 5k Run!
  14. Get married –> Happening soon ❀
  15. Grow/MaintainΒ a plant (and not kill it) –> See my plants here! #1 #2
  16. Make own pasta from scratch
  17. Go Canyoneering
  18. Wear a bikini
  19. Jump of a cliff…again!
  20. Swim with either a whale shark or see a sea turtle up close
  21. Go whitewater rafting
  22. Start a fire without matches
  23. Design own website –> Done and failed. Hahahaha.
  24. Go on a cruise
  25. Be either a red head or a blondie!
  26. Eat at a celebrity chef’s restaurant
  27. Confidently and properly put on makeup –> I can already do this but if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that I don’t like it. πŸ˜›
  28. Create a passive income
  29. Go wine tasting!
  30. Bake something!

Those are my top 30 goals and I know I can list a few more but I’m strictly keeping at thirty for the mean time.

Do you have lists/goals for yourself? I’d love to read them!

    I have six more years to go before I turn 30 and I still feel the burden of it, like all our youth went away in a puff of air and I find myself whispering, “Age is just a number.” Hahaha

  2. Love this so much!! Your list sounds like such a good time!! I’m currently living and working in Seoul, South Korea, and you should definitely come visit! You can totally do these things in 3 years!! Good luck, girl!! πŸ™‚

    • Wow lucky you living and working in Seoul! ❀️ do you know how to speak Korean? Or do most of them know how to speak English? That’s my main concern for going there


      • I didn’t know that much Korean when I first came, but I picked up on a few phrases pretty quickly. It was a little difficult at first, but you get used to it. I find that most Koreans can speak English, but they’re really shy and don’t want to make mistakes so they won’t. But you can definitely get around even if you don’t know Korean!!

    • Wahh! We’re just a year apart! I actually haven’t seen this list in a while so I was pleasantly surprised that I ticked off a few. Is your list in your blog? Can’t find it hehehe. Ps kaya natin to, for me it doesn’t matter if I finish it all basta I try! 😁


    • Meron akong alam pero hindi ako sure if enough para magturo sa iba! πŸ˜‚ lugi ako lately dahil sa maling timing huhu


      • Pag marunong na marunong ka na i-blog mo please! Wuw, nag-request? Haha. ‘Yung mga tutorials na nababasa ko online parang hindi pa rin noob-friendly e, charot. Or I guess hindi lang ako masipag maghanap. πŸ™‚
