I love this idea! I’ve been seeing friends writing up 30 Before 30 lists and the like lately, too. I have no idea right now what would be on mine — I’d have to think about it!

Wow, there are some great ideas on here!  Some of the things I’d like to do include:

  • Start a family.

  • Get my scuba certification.

  • Run another marathon (I’ve run 2 already – it’s a huge time commitment but there is something very satisfying about it).

  • Try to read at least 1 book a month this year.

  • Make a garden in the backyard and cook a meal entirely from things that I grew in the garden.

@amoret11:  I know this isn’t a new thread but I love your aspiration to start a NPO. What would the cause be?
