It is a bit late to complete my 30-things-to-do-before-I-turn-30 list as I have less than 11 months until my 30th birthday. But I guess it is alright to do it now while we are still in the new-year-new-me mood, right?
Here is my bucket list:
1. Photoshoot with my best friend
My best friend Danella and I have been best friends for 10 years. To celebrate our friendship milestone, we decided to do a photoshoot together. And Danella is talented in photography.
2. Ride a horse
Doesn’t it feel so cool?
3. Take a language course in Germany
I have been learning German for more than a year and I can’t think of a better place to learn the language and the culture than being in the country.
4. Make a cake
Why not? I just need to borrow a friend’s oven.
5. Cook more at home
I love cooking. I am just lazy. And it’s much healthier and cheaper than eating out.
6. Master swimming
I need to learn how to swim with my contact lens on.
7. Do a bike tour
I always think this is very carefree and relaxing. Like a tampon commercial.
8. Travel solo to a new country
I did travel solo several times before and I love to have the days just be alone to recharge and reflect myself. Once you try it, you’ll love it.
9. Play in an arcade
Getting excited like when I was a kid.
10. Go camping
Because I have never done it before.
11. Exercise more
Because I should and I want to look good.
12. Smoke weed in Amsterdam
If I have to do it, I want to do it right in the right place.
13. Go to one of the biggest music festivals in Europe
Before I get too old and no energy to dance anymore.
14. Cook a meal for my family
My mom doesn’t let me make a “mess” in her kitchen but she complains I never cooked for her. So I will invite her to my studio to try my cooking.
15. Party until the sun comes up
I haven’t done it for a while since I moved back home but I am down for tiring myself from dancing.
16. Finish the 1000-piece puzzle
My boyfriend bought a 1000-piece puzzle and he never spends a minute to solve it. Let’s see how long it takes us to finish it.
17. Stay in a treehouse
Treehouse Masters makes me want to do it!
18. Treat myself expensively for a day
Have an expensive meal by myself, go for spa and massage, get manicure and pedicure done, buy myself something. Just me time.
19. Read at least 5 books
I used to read. Now I get addicted to social media and I forgot all the books I have. It’s time to put down the phone and pick up a book to read.
20. Shop fewer clothing items
Simply because I don’t need more.
21. Volunteer for a cause I love
Donate to an animal shelter or foster temporarily.
22. Play darts with my boss and win at least one game
This is our thing since I worked as his assistant in 2012. He says I have a T-rex arm and he always beats me up…
23. Master German and have a conversation with a native fluently
I hope #3 would help me achieve it.
24. Have a vegetarian diet for 7 days each month
I want to do something to ease global warming and this little thing is what I am able to help. And you get to eat healthy, so why not?
25. Take a family photo with the new member, my baby niece
On Dec 25, 2017 we have a new family member and we need an updated family photo.
26. Paint again
Plan my schedule well and take some time out for oil painting.
27. Learn how to buy stocks
I might not have money to buy any stocks but I want to learn how it is and the market. By saving money only won’t make more money. Maybe one day I will buy some.
28. Get hired for a virtual job
I’m curious of being hired for a virtual job and want to earn extra money.
29. Write more and be consistent
Write anything. My journal, my 52 weeks gratitude journal, bucket lists or whatever and I want to stick to this habit.
30. Clean and organize my mailbox and computer
I have like 15000+ unread irrelevant emails in my inbox and it gives me headache. I know that I should clear spam emails and organize my file in the computer well. And keep doing it constantly.
