Pride and Stride

I started to make a list of 30 things to do before I turned 30, but that seemed too stressful since I only had months and not years to get there. So, instead I reflected on 30 cool accomplishments or experiences I have had in my nearly three decades of life... In no particular order.

9. Won a city wide essay contest
10. Flew in an ultralight plane...This was one of the scariest experiences of my life, but what a thrill!
11. Became fluent in Spanish...I've lost a lot of this, so it is time to hit the books or get into some language classes again!
