Today, I turn 29.
(ugh, the anxiety is already starting to build.
There’s only 365 days till I am *whisper voice* thirty!)
There’s not much time left of my 20’s! How did it go so fast? I feel like I blinked and I went from 25 to 29. Must be a sign that I’m getting older.
In order to make the MOST of my last year, I’ve decided to make a bucket list in random order. Introducing my 30 things to do before I’m 30. In short:
