Thirty One Things

I made this list almost 3 years ago, when I turned 31. The plan was to accomplish all of them in a year. Life happened, accomplishment of the list did not. It is embarassing. The "MUST BE PERFECT ALL OF THE TIME!!!" voice in my head is telling me to delete this page and hide my shame. But, you know what? It's a good list. I like this list. I like the things that I have done and there are things on here that I still want to do. So, I am leaving it here. Yes, it is a testament to laziness, failure, and setting unreasonably high expectations for myself. But it's also a testament to adventure and discovery and continually striving to become the best version of myself in the face of repeated failures and attacks of laziness.
