30 before 30 follow-up

30-Before-30Well, nothing quite goes the way we plan, but still, 29 was a heck of a year, friends. Honestly, I cannot believe that I am 30. That sounds so old… and mature.

But, I did want to revisit my 30 before 30 list. I did not accomplish all my goals, but was still a really wonderful year.

  1. Give nursing school my all – absolutely
  2. Land a new job – landed in March! ER nurse coming July, 2017.
  3. Plan an epic vacation to celebrate the big 3-0 and a nursing degree – Germany!
  4. Buy a Replica perfume – added a few others instead.
  5. Likewise, buy my first high end lipstick – November 2016!
  6. Wear a bikini confidently – turns out this isn’t my jam.
  7. Go on a truly relaxing vacation with Z. – cruise October 2016
  8. Finally hit my healthy range BMI – I’m honestly so disappointed that this didn’t happen.
  9. Run a 5k in under 45 minutes (I’m slow and I hate running, ok)
  10. Learn to cook scallops
  11. Eat vegetarian for a whole week. We’re not going crazy here – never managed it
  12. Redo my dining room – fabulous mint.
  13. Invest in some truly awesome art for our home – nope
  14. Learn to hand make my own pasta- still on my list
  15. Watch a baby being born (come on maternity clinicals!) – maternity did the trick.
  16. Buy a pair of silk pajamas – also still on my list
  17. Get a massage – Thai massage in Thailand!
  18. Dye my hair blonde – I did rainbow instead
  19. Get a tattoo – is it too late?
  20. Learn to not hit snooze for 15 minutes – nope. Another year at perfecting the skill
  21. Read Syliva Plath’s The Bell Jar. After I finish that, I might work on the rest of this list since there are far too many on here that I haven’t read.
  22. Learn how I feel about motherhood because as I start 29 I am very much on the fence about this. – I don’ t want to get in to it.
  23. Learn something about wine other that I like it – No, but I still drank a lot of it.
  24. Have a solid fitness regime because apparently I am not getting any younger – still working on it.
  25. Write an academic article from my thesis – 😦
  26. Marie Kondo the crap out of my home. New decade, clean house, right? – It has been on the blog quite a bit.
  27. Find the perfect little black dress. Wear it out with my fabulous new lipstick – no. But I got some great new pieces for my wardrobe
  28. Take a cooking class – Thai cooking class in Thailand. Love it!
  29. Drink more champagne. Actually, drink more in general, just spread out and not in concentrated settings – I did that
  30. Get a spray tan – sadly, still pale.


Now, just to come up with a few goals for next year.
