Moving on…

Soooo the last time we spoke (my blogging pattern is now laughable, I know!), I was talking about how I wanted to make some changes in my life and start working towards my goals. I last published a blog post in December and since then I’ve proudly ticked off some major goals. I spoke about how I wanted to accomplish certain things in life which were quite particular as well as general. A somewhat realistic collection of various goals I hoped to achieve before/while I’m thirty (you can read it here). I did indulge in that BIG trip to celebrate turning thirty (hellooo Texas), and it’s safe to say that the celebrations continued for a few weeks after!

30 things before/while I’m 30 (a somewhat realistic bucket list)

Everyone has their own idea of a bucket list – some are travelled based, home interior inspired or just life goals in general. I’m hitting the good old dirty thirty in a matter of weeks and since turning twenty nine, it’s all I can think about. I’ve been dwelling on the negative side of things instead of looking towards my future and living in the moment. I often feel pressured by society to have settled down by now, own my own home, have produced a baby or two and of course, found that perfect job. Hate to break it to you but I’ve “accomplished” none of that and in a way – it makes me happy. Why should I settle for a bad relationship, put myself in debt over a mortgage when I can travel the world and actually do what I want to do with my life?! OK so … I could rant forever regarding expectations/pressures but for today I’ll just share my somewhat realistic bucket list. I’m putting a spin on the traditional bucket list and compiling my own little version – a list that is centered around the big 3.0. Some people have put together their 30 goals/aspirations before they turn thirty but as I can’t possibly complete all of them within six weeks, I have decided to name them my ’30 while I’m 30′ goals.

Best of USA Bucket List: East Coast 

Now that I’m easing myself back into this whole blogging business I wanted to create new content. Travel is going to be a huge part of my life this year and hopefully many more to come. I’ve been to the states before but only NYC and Boston. Both are incredible cities in very different ways and this Summer I’m spending a few week’s exploring the rest of America. By rest I don’t mean every single state but a fair amount in my opinion! It is an adventure of a lifetime (you can read up on my initial excitement here) and I’ve been busy researching various hotspots/bucket list places to visit.
