Bucket List for my 30s

Life has a way of taking over and before you can grasp how much time has past, you’re close to 30 and not where you wanted to be in life. So where did you want to be in life? What did you want to do? I think that’s what I’m pursing – clarity.

Once I can figure out what all I really want to achieve in the next few years, I can start figuring out how to make them happen! So for posterity, I’m going to list all of them and I guess I’ll update every year.
