Before I am 30…

Before I am 30…

In my opinion I have already achieved a fair amount in my 26 years of life. Milestones a lot of people never reach and overall I am proud of the things I have gained thoroughly my life. Some of the most rewarding so far have been:

1. Graduating from University with an Honours Degree in Education,

2. Landing myself a permanent position doing my dream job – a teacher,

3. Getting married and planning to spend the rest of my life with my best friend,

4. Becoming an Auntie to the best little girl on the planet,

5. Moving into a house with my lovely husband, 

6. Raising a fair amount of money for various charities whilst doing some cool things, such as, sleeping rough, bungee jumps and different running events.

There are other things in my life that I am proud of but those six jumped straight out at me.

Anyway … there are still so many things I want to achieve in life and thought I’d select a handful to reach before I am the grand age of 30 – only 4 years away. Gads!

  1. Have a baby.
  2. Buy a family dog.
  3. Buy our own home.
  4. Visit 10 different countries.
  5. Climb as many hills/moutains in Scotland.
  6. Visit every part of Scotland.
  7. Visit 10 different football stadium.
  8. Run/Walk a marathon.
  9. See the Northern Lights.
  10. Go on a helicopter.
  11. Milk a cow.
  12. Hold an owl/eagle.
  13. Learn to swim.
  14. Swim with sharks.
  15. Cycle around Millport.
  16. Become fit and get some muscle.
  17. Complete a Playstation/Xbox Game.
  18. Visit 30 Cities around the world.
  19. Go to a Champions League game.
  20. Visit Old Trafford.
  21. Go to Wimbeldon.
  22. Walk on Abbey Road.
  23. Give blood 5 times.
  24. Visit the Globe Theatre.
  25. Complete the Rubix Cube.
  26. Learn an Oasis song on piano/guitar.
  27. Learn a Beatles song on piano/guitar.
  28. Participate in 10 charity events.
  29. Become a morning person.
  30. Worry less and take more risks!

There you have it – I will revisit this post each year to update you all on my progress! Also, reading through generic ‘bucket lists’ I realised I have complete a lot of things on them! Yasss!

Do you have a bucket list? If so what is on it? πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸΌ

    Such a wonderful list of things to achieve and a great way to focus on what you are proud of rather than what went wrong. Go you for all you have achieved so far and I’m excited to see what you cross off in the next year xo
