30 by 30

 Finally have my OWN place where I can have a postcard wall, produce something that will go viral – these are just some of the goals I came up with that I have to accomplish by the time I’m 30.

My bestfriend Candniss Everdeen (not her real name, just hungover from Hunger Games trollolol) calls this 30 by 30 — a personal do list for the next few years of a 20-something’s life. Perfect for kids like me who try to make sense of the blur that is our life — Who really knows what they want in life, anyway?

I don’t – but it’s nice to think about where you want to be and what you want to be by the time you age a little. So here’s my list of goals, and for the sake of organization, I decided to cluster them into categories – Personal, Travel, Career & Various.
