30ish Things I’ve Done Before 30

I’ve recently been seeing a lot of “30 things to do before your 30” posts kicking around and have found it a little intimidating as I’ve only got 2 years left!!  I thought I’d flip the concept on its head and do a 30ish things I’ve done before 30 list to celebrate all the awesome things (if I do say so myself) that I’ve done in my 28 years of planetary life. It’s a great way to look back positively and to encourage yourself to do more cool things.

I recommend trying this for yourself, you’ll be amazed what you’ve forgotten and then remember with an air punch!
