Thirty Things To Do Before I'm Thirty

It's my 29th Birthday in two days! The last one of my 20's and I'm still not sure how I got here. Twenty-one really does feel like yesterday and it's just all getting a bit grown up and responsible isn't it? I'm not really sure at what point I stopped getting I.D'd, when I realised I'd rather spend a weekend at home, or that I started thinking seriously about my finances and the sorry state of them! A lot of my friends can't understand why I place so much importance on age, but I think it is more to do with thinking that I haven't accomplished all I thought I would by 30. If you asked my younger self where she thought she'd be on the approach to a new decade there would be some differences to the reality! As a treat I've included me through the years on all my birthdays! 20-29.....

So I thought a fun thing to do, although I may regret some, is to do a 30 things before I'm 30 post and over the next year attempt to work my way through the list, of course trying to blog about as many as possible, so you can share my final year of youth. Before I really can't get away with pretending to be young and naive...
