A couple of my Internet friends have done or are in the process of doing a 30 before 30 list. Basically, they are creating a list of things that they want to accomplish before their 30th birthday, and then blogging about them. Others are doing this for other milestone birthdays as well. I really like the idea, but the big 3-0 is a still a couple of years off for me. So, I decided that I will do this every year up to my 30th birthday. I will turn 27 on May 28, so I'm getting kind of a late start this year, but I have created a list of 27 things that I want to accomplish in the next 146 days. I've even added a little countdown over there on the right sidebar so that we can all keep track of how many days are left in this challenge. The 27th thing on my list is to blog about my progress on the list, so you will be seeing updates about the things that I am marking off the list. Without further ado, here is my list...

I'm excited about doing this and I'm interested to see how it will all turn out! Some of them are going to be a challenge, but I tried to include things that were SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time Bound). I have a little more than 5 1/2 months, so I think I can do all of these!
