Updating My 30 Before 30

 via

It's been almost seven months since I've created my 30 Before 30 list, and I have only scratched one thing off. Now this really isn't that big of a deal since I've given myself 5 years to complete 30 tasks, however I do not want to waste any time tackling these wonderful experiences. I also don't want to procrastinate and end up with 20 things left in my last couple of years. 

So what's the plan?

Well, for starters I am going to revise this list. I know, I know this is technically against the rules, but as I've been reading over my list there are a few things missing and a few existing things that make a wonder what in the world was I thinking, and well this list needs to be a reflection of me. So, here's what we're going to change up!


#13 was learn to sew and is now learn to play the piano. While I want to learn how to do both of these things, I have a much stronger desire to learn how to play the piano. Since this isn't a 31 before 30 list, I am choosing to alter #13 on my list. 

#17 was watch 155 of IMDB's top 250 movies and is now spend the day with beluga whales. To be able to watch these 155 movies in 5 years I would have to watch 31 movies a year. While these movies are ones that I truly must watch at some point, it is a very daunting task. And I want this list to be something fun that helps me reach the big 3-0...and for me, swimming with/learning about sweet beluga whales is a perfect replacement. Keith and I have visited the Atlanta Aquarium twice this year and each time I have been completely captivated by these creatures. I can even meet these guys here in Atlanta thanks to a new program offered here in ATL! :) So, that's that.

#30 was get accepted/graduate from law school and is now get accepted to law school. When I created this list the plan was to enroll in law school in 2012 and graduate by 2015 or by 30 years old. I had already postponed law school before I found out that I was pregnant, but now that we're expecting I will most likely postpone for at least one more year. So, the focus now is to get accepted to law school before I turn 30 years old.

What do you guys think? Did I chop my list up too much? Are these replacements/adjustments acceptable? I'll be back soon with my timeline of how I am going to accomplish everything by my 30th birthday! :)

I think it is absolutely up to the individual to make changes to the list! I like your changes too, I made a live list awhile ago and even though it's open-ended I feel like I was too ambitious and I want to pare it down a little :) It's supposed to be fun not stressful so I say any changes are a-ok!

I think your list is wonderful! It's adventurous and ambitious and very exciting!

I think it's definitely acceptable to make changes...coming from a girl who is too chicken to even make a list! Of course with only 18 months until I'm 30, it'd have to be a short one...

I don't think you chopped up your list too much at all! I've been thinking of making some amendments to my own list in fact! Good luck!
