As you saw in my last post, I survived turning 30, actually really enjoyed it. I have to admit it's weird though. It's really just a number but writing it or typing it feels so weird, like I've become part of a new club or something. If that's the case, it must be the coolest club around, because it feels pretty good!
So I guess since I hit the big 3-0 it's time to tally up how I did with my 30 Things by Thirty list.
So here we go...
2. Spend a day at the park, relaxing. Unfortunately I didn't get this one in. Our weekends were so packed with traveling or training it just wasn't possible. It will definitely be accomplised in the Spring though!
5. Visit the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I came so close on this one. Had a friend I was going with, a date on the calendar and then Mother Nature let it rain. You can visit the BG in the rain, we just didn't particularly want to, or think it would be much fun! So, now we've got this on the calendar for Spring!
13. Make headway in my French lessons. I didn't even come close on this one! I'm not going to lie, I don't think I even completed 1 lesson in the whole 5 months! However, I am renewing my commitment to this one and am going to start putting it on the calendar to hold my self accountable!
And there you have it. 27 out of the 30 things got crossed off my list, I'm pretty pleased. And the 3 that didn't? Well they are going to roll on over to my 31 Things by Thirty One list. Yep, that's right, I'm gonna do it again! I really enjoyed working on my list and loved that it "made" me try new things. It's easy to get in the habit of doing what's easy or comfortable or familiar, so a little kick to break out of that can be a welcomed thing. Plus, I like the idea of starting my own tradition the year I turned 30.
I'm going to give myself a few weeks to come up with my new list. I've already got a head start with the "leftovers" from the 30 list and there were a few things like new restaurants and recipes that I want to continue. So, I got quite a few things to come up with but I'm sure it won't take long. Get ready!
