First Things First

Let's begin with "the list", because that's where this whole blog came from. As I was reading through one of the many blogs that I stalk, sfgirlbybay, I came across several different blogger's Mighty Life Lists. It's a list of 100 or so things you want to accomplish in your life - same concept as a bucket list, but with a name makeover. On a slow day at work, I decided to start my Mighty Life List, but realized that most of the things on my list were pretty short term - how the hell do I know what will be on my life list in 20 years?! So I decided to customize my list a bit, and make a list of things I plan to accomplish between now and my 30th birthday. I plan to use this blog to update the steps I'm taking to make sure everything gets checked off. So this gives me a little less than 6 years to accomplish my "30 Before 30" goals....I think that's pretty doable.
I'll be crossing off items on my list as I accomplish them, so hopefully this will soon be a very crossed off list.
