thirty before thirty;

I've been inspired by Annie's post @ appletoothpaste, and I've decided to write my own list of thirty things I want to do/achieve/experience before my thirtieth birthday!

(1)  Get a first on my honours degree. (I got a second! Close enough!)
(2)  Get my masters degree.
(3)  Move out of home.
(4)  Live in a different country. (I now live in Gloucester, UK.)
(5)  Eat sushi. (Delicious!)
(6)  Get a new car.
(7)  Get a Rottweiler.
(8)  Finally get the tattoo I've been planning with years.
(9)  Find a mascara that I really love. (Soap & Glory's "Thick & Fast" has become a holy grail product.)
(10)  Go on a date.
(11)  Go on a date on Valentine's Day.
(12)  Go skydiving.
(13)  Qualify as a make-up artist.
(14)  Go on a holiday without my parents.
(15)  Have cosmetic surgery.
(16)  Have blonde hair.
(17)  Learn to walk properly in heels.
(18)  Own a pair of Louboutins.
(19)  Fly first class to anywhere.
(20)  Get married.
(21)  Meet Bryce Avary.
(22)  Take my sisters out to dinner in an actual restaurant. (Nom nom nom.)
(23)  Work in a job I actually like.
(24)  Taste everything on the menu at Costa coffee.
(25)  Go to Mardi Gras.
(26)  Meet Gale Harold.
(27)  Have my dream kitchen.
(28)  Own a pair of Wildfox Couture Bel-Air sunglasses.
(29)  Watch every episode of Sex and the City.
(30)  Receive a bouquet of flowers.

 In December, I turned twenty-one, so I think it's about time I get a move on in regard to making something of my life.  I mean, in the grand scheme of things, nine years isn't a long time.  I know a lot of things in this list mightn't seem very important, but it's often the little things that make the biggest difference, and a small sense of achievement is better than none!  In that same vein, I hope I haven't set my sights on anything too outlandish.  I'll be keeping this list updated, crossing things off the list as they (hopefully) happen, so watch this space!
