The other night I was thinking about how close I am to turning 30 and how much I still want to accomplish in my life. Now I know the fear of turning the big 3-0 is not unique, and that I have a future beyond that, but I wanted to set some goals for myself. So I spent some time and created 100 things I want to do/see before I die and 30 things I think I can accomplish before I hit my 30th birthday. Step one will be to keep up with this site.
