A couple of months ago, I picked up a copy of Sasha Cagen's book To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal about Us. It's an inspiring book -- a collection of lists from strangers, and since reading it, I have written many lists for myself.
Cagen also has a blog, and last week she posted a list that caught my attention. It was a list by a woman who wants to do 30 things before she turns thirty. I turn 35 in about a month, and thought that I would tag on to this fabulous list. What better way to ring in a new half-decade than by accomplishing some fun things leading up to it?
I'm excited about this idea. Lord knows that I have more than I can handle on my plate at the moment, but these things seem fun and feel self-indulgent. A few things on my list are personal, so I've blanked them out. I will keep you apprised of my progress as the month goes on.
