30 Before 30: An Update | May 2015

I posted my last 30 before 30 update back in April last year. Having managed to tick a few more items off the list, I thought I'd do another update post, as I think it's always nice to look back on your goals and what you have achieved.

  1. Marry Matt
  2. Move into our own place
  3. Get a permanent job
  4. Buy an exercise bike
  5. Grow my hair long and grow out the bleach
  6. Trip to Las Vegas and visit the Cheesecake Factory
  7. See the Grand Canyon
  8. See Snow Patrol live again
  9. Own a piece of jewellery from Tiffany & Co.
  10. Own a Coach Bag
  11. Trip to New York
  12. See the Statue of Liberty
  13. Get a DSLR
  14. Get a 50mm lens for DSLR
  15. Beach trip
  16. Buy a new car
  17. Self-publish a book
  18. Get a bigger external hard drive
  19. Revisit Brighton
  20. Have at least £3000 saved up
  21. Complete an online photography course
  22. Start making YouTube videos
  23. Get rid of unnecessary clutter
  24. Own a Marc Jacobs bag
  25. Revisit Paris
  26. Throw a themed party
  27. Scrapbook our trips and travels
  28. Visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour
  29. See a sunrise
  30. Do a mini UK roadtrip

So the new ones I've managed to complete since April are the ones highlighted in blue. Although I completed #20, I feel like I should leave that one un-ticked as I actually used that money towards buying our house and I'd really like to build up some more savings.

I would like to have got more ticked off the list but our lives as we know it have been on hold as of late due to living with Matt's parents whilst we bought our first house together. Hopefully I can start ticking off a few more of these once we have got the house sorted and all moved in. Having said that, I think buying a house before the age of 30 is a pretty good reason to let some of the other things wait, so I'm not too concerned that a few of these things won't be done before I turn 30, if at all.

I'm thinking #17 (self-publish a book), #21 (complete an online photography course), #23 (get rid of unnecessary clutter) and #29 (see a sunrise) should be pretty easy to do, but the trips to New York (#11 & #12) and Paris (#25) might be a little adventurous... But we shall see!

Life is about adapting and sometimes goals and plans change, and I'm actually OK with that and looking forward to what the next 18 months brings!
