30 things not to do before I'm 30

I don't want to freak you guys out or anything, but in 10 years I'll be 3 years away from preparing to turn 40 (FORTY), so basically my geriatric years aren't that far away at all because 10 years ago I was 16 and now here I am, 26, even though sometimes I still feel like I'm 16 until I realize I'm not... not even close. I'm practically 40.  I want to make the most of the 3.3 years I have left as a twenty-something, and nothing makes people feel better about impending birthdays like crazed goal setting! I've made ambitious to-do lists before and while fun to read, they never come to fruition... to much doing and not enough not doing. That's really where I shine. 

I'm so excited to not do all of these things. 

  • Swim with whale sharks
  • Swim with any kind of shark 
  • Run a marathon 
  • Sing in public
  • Visit Las Vegas
  • Gut a fish
  • Learn how to pole dance 
  • Give up caffeine
  • Pee on my leg (aka camping)
  • Participate in a flash mob
  • Live without my iPhone
  • Have anything to do with a maternity photo shoot
  • Post 3D ultrasound pictures on Facebook
  • Give a stranger my number 
  • Care about making my bed
  • Care about winning a game of miniature golf
  • Become a Reality TV star
  • Ride a mechanical bull
  • Watch any of the Transformer movies
  • Spend NYE in Times Square
  • Master fencing
  • Get into Harvard
  • Learn to yodel
  • Two words: Fantasy football
  • Three words: Matching couple tattoos
  • Sail around the world in 80 days
  • Drink a gallon of milk in under an hour
  • Be the inspiration for a Taylor Swift song
  • Shave my head 
  • Contract a terminal disease

I'm right on track to not accomplish any of this! It feels good. Bring it on, 30!
