Caitlin's 30 Before 30

Instead of New Year's Resolutions this year, I plotted out my "30 Before 30" — 30 goals I've set for myself to meet over the next 365 days. I'm really excited about these, and hopeful that I can cross most (if not all) off of my list. If you want my editorializing on each of these items (and my husband's comments of encouragement, too) you can see those on the original post here. Below, I'll just keep a straightforward list, and as I accomplish things, I'll write up posts about how I did and link the goal to the post. Let's get to it!

1. Save up for a trip to Disney World for my 30th birthday. It was the trip of a lifetime.
2. Train for and run a half marathon.
3. Take a weekend trip by myself. I got in Formation in Houston and Dallas, and it was glorious.
4. Find a career I love.
5. Learn how to play the drums.
6. Learn how to sew!! Take a class, make some clothes/quilts.
7. Practice German and increase fluency.
8. Scrapbook my wedding goodies. Done!
9. Visit Iceland.
10. Write a book.
11. Go offline for a whole month. Meditative & refreshing - would do again.
12. Complete a month-long photo challenge.
13. Write once a day for at least 15 minutes.
14. Go to a music festival I’ve never attended before.
15. Be debt free. It happened, and wasn't quite as life-changing as I'd expected (but still a relief).
16. Watch my “30 before 30” watch list of Criterion Collection films. It took ONE BILLION YEARS but I did it and rounded up my favorites in this post.
17. Attend a “radical self love” boot camp of some kind.
18. Kickstart a new personal blog. Oh look, you're here!
19. Try out a few boxing lessons. I gave it a go, and intend to try more!
20. Personal goal.
21. Get 8 hours of sleep a night.
22. Complete a GoodReads book challenge.
23. See LCD Soundsystem with Zack. Boom.
24. Get published somewhere (Rookie, Rolling Stone, BuzzFeed, wherever).
25. Write a song.
26. Do one nice thing for someone else each day.
27. Dance more.
28. Let go of perfectionism – embrace mistakes.
29. Add more makeup looks to my arsenal.
30. Eat one meal a week with Zack AWAY from the television set.
