My boyfriend graduated from college this past weekend with a degree in Economics.  How the hell did that happen? When did we start really growing up? I don’t know.  However, in light of this recent accomplishment I have decided to create a list of things I want to accomplish, or keep in mind, before I’m 30.  Heres to the next 8 years.

[ ] Finish your degree

[ ] Watch all the Star Wars movies in a row (4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3)

[ ] Drive across the country

[ ] Remember that 30 is NOT the new 20

[ ] Brush my teeth three times a day

[ ] Read at least one book every month 

[ ] Stop for a second and really admire the beautiful places you go

[ ] Ride your bike instead of driving when you can, that’s why you have it

[ ] Sleep in every once and awhile and don’t feel bad about it

[ ] Write “Thank You” cards every time one is warranted, maybe even if it’s not

[ ] Take vitamins daily

[ ] Eat healthy and exercise, because it is good for you not because you want to look good

[x] Meet the love of your life

[ ] Marry the love of your life

[ ] Have a baby with the love of your life

[ ] Find a career (not just a job) that you’re happy with

[ ] Seriously consider going to graduate school, but don’t beat yourself up if you decide it’s not for you

[ ] Visit the Grand Canyon and appreciate its beauty 

[ ] Read the newspaper

[ ] Save all of your change, because it really does add up!

[ ] Take pictures of everything, you’ll want them someday

[ ] Do what is best for you, but never lose sight of the fact that you are not the only person that matters.  Sometimes you will have to do things you wouldn’t ordinarily do because they are important to someone you love.

[ ] Love unconditionally

[ ] Own up to mistakes made, apologize, and move on

[ ] See the worlds largest ball of yarn 

[ ] Go camping at least once per year, because it is nice to get back into nature

[ ] Backpack through Europe and have the time of your life

[ ] Skydive

[ ] Remember that DIY is always better than store-bought 

[ ] Eat meals at the kitchen table with loved ones at every opportunity 

[ ] Be thankful for what you have not wishful for what you don’t

[ ] Be on time, always

[ ] Start reading the Harry Potter books to your kids, nieces, nephews, and cousins, because they are important

[ ] Take a sick day off work once a year when you are feeling fine.  Call in well! Go on an adventure!

[ ] Relax and take a night to yourself when you feel like you need to

[ ] Take your family to Belize, they will love it or they are not really related to you

[ ] Always always always put your family first

[ ] Go on family vacation once a year, at least

[ ] Recognize that Disney is an evil corporation, but take your kids there anyways.  They will have the time of their life, and it’s not their faut Disney had no morals.

[ ] Set aside money each month for savings, but not for anything in particular.  Someday you’ll know what to do with that money.

[ ] Rent a boat

[ ] Travel whenever and however possible

[ ] Never say “no” to adventure

[ ] Be safe, don’t be reckless.  Your family only has one of you, so you need to take care of yourself.

[ ] Be mindful of the future, but do not forget about the present 

[ ] Always be an educated voter 

[ ] Never stop learning

[ ] Grow a vegetable and herb garden, use your harvest

[ ] Love who you are

[ ] Always be considerate of your mother

[ ] Buy a home

[ ] Be smart about your money, its a necessary evil

[ ] Strictly follow the “no phones in bed” and “no phones at the table” rule

[ ] Never miss an opportunity to say “I love you”

[ ] Kiss goodnight, kiss good morning 

[ ] Eat breakfast together, regardless of time, every morning

[ ] Drink tea

[ ] Live happily

Meet and greet: Terra pup. This is Terra (aka bear, tear bear, pups, etc). She was the greatest dog in the whole wide world, and isn’t she a cutie?

Fun fact: sometimes we charm up the apartment for a classy night of home-cooked meals and fancy wine. I love wine.

Fun fact: I can twist balloons.  This is a charming little flower that I made one evening. There may or my not be more balloon twisting shots to come, we will see.

The bus stop by my casa looks horribly frightening and lonely at night.
