30 Before 30 – The What

19 Sep

Drum roll please…

Here is the list of things I’ve decided I must get through before May 3rd, 2013.  Each challenge is something that will either force me to grow in some way, or that is just so damn fun I should have done it AGES ago. There are also five challenges that I’ve asked my friends to set me, and five challenges I’m doing for more selfless reasons.

Ten for growth

  • Skydive
  • Ask a guy (stranger) for his number
  • Write a short story and enter it into a competition
  • Do a drama workshop
  • Go horse riding
  • Have a travel or wellbeing article published in a major international publication
  • Go on a blind date
  • Learn Spanish
  • Visit Singapore
  • Take cookery classes

Ten for fun

  • Go to the airport and catch the next flight out – to wherever!
  • Gate crash a wedding
  • Party nonstop for 24 hours
  • Learn how to make (proper) cocktails
  • Sing karaoke (sober)
  • Do another photography workshop
  • Party in New York, New York…
  • Learn how to tango
  • Kiss a South American
  • Learn how to DJ

Five for my friends

  • Go for a week without the internet
  • Quit alcohol for a month
  • Babysit
  • Eat snails
  • Wear an abaya for the weekend

Five for selfless reasons

  • Make a difference to someone’s life
  • Raise awareness of a good cause
  • Take part in fundraising
  • Spend a completely selfless day
  • Forgive and forget

So, any thoughts? Do you all think I’m crazy yet?

In my next post I’ll be writing a little bit about why I have chosen each one.
