30 before 30

so i felt totally inspired by my list of complete/almost complete resolutions

let's not talk about the closet situation

that i decided to set some long (more than a year away) goals

and also because bill and i have been watching a lot of old amazing race seasons

i keep proclaiming that i will learn; bill keeps promising he will teach me - to

1. drive stick - on the rare chance we do make it on the show, it would probably be nice to have me as a backup driver.  but let's be real - i don't trust bill enough with reading a map.  i'm a complete control freak and would be barking in the back of the car the whole time.

so these goals, in no particular order (except for #1...i'm knocking that one out asap) are things i find important to do/experience/live before i hit the milestone year of 30

i will be 28 this december, so i feel like i have ample amounts of time to really sink my teeth into a whole slew of goals

but for naming and titling and cutesy picmonkey makings 

let's round that list to 30

30 before 30 (completed #'s are linked)

so again, number 1...
  1. learn to drive stick - for amazing race and other obvious practical reasons
  2. travel outside of the country - i've got my eye on madrid and various places in germany
  3. install new floors - myself
  4. make my own cheese - because i love cheese
  5. beat my half marathon time - because i know it's in me
  6. ride 50+ miles by bike
