30 Before 30

IMG_1909 (2)Several months ago one of my fellow volunteers created a list of thirty things she wanted to do before she turned thirty and I decided to give it a try. I contemplated for a while, wrote a few items, erased a few items, and finally came up with my own list which includes Peace Corps and post-Peace Corps goals. Some are wishful thinking and some are practical necessities that I really hope happen. Of course, this list could change in the next couple of weeks, months, years; but this is my 30 Before 30 for where I currently am in life and the few pursuits I would like to make  reality. Enjoy reading my hopes for the future!
