Happy 25th Birthday to me!
Ok, I'll be the first to admit that it felt a little weird to type that number. I swear I just graduated high school like yesterday! I'm slightly freaked out that my age now rounds to 30, but I'm also trying to embrace all that comes with being 25, which really sounds like an "adult" age...like the fact that you may end up using your birthday money to pay bills or that your Christmas present may be new tires. Who am I kidding...there ain't nothin' fun about that! But, instead of wallowing in the fact that I'm getting older, I'm choosing to put the positive spin on things and think about all that I want to accomplish throughout the rest of my 20's.
So, without further ado...my official 30 Before 30 List!
In no particular order of importance:
1. Get my Masters Degree...already working on that!
2. Become a Tenured Teacher...1 more year after this, hopefully!
3. Travel some place tropical...I don't care where, just get me to a pretty beach!
4. Have a baby...God willing!
5. Go Zip-Lining
6. Ice-Skate in Rockefeller Plaza
7. Get my National Boards in Teaching...lot's of work but worth the extra pay!
8. Have a legit photo-session with Kyle...love all those cute couples photos!
9. Go Deep Sea Fishing

11. Do at least 1 random act of kindness every year leading up to 30
