thirty before thirty

I’ve seen “30 before 30” lists on a lot of blogs in the past, and because I’m in my twenties, I thought I’d make one for myself! Some of the items on the list are simple, but others will take a little bit of planning and effort to accomplish. As I cross things off the list, I’ll share the stories with you!

1. Learn how to play guitar.

2. Climb a mountain all the way to the top.

3. Go back to Granada.

  1. 29. Movies they might not talk about on GG but I recommend for your life-experience education: Un Homme et Une Femme, Casablanca, It Happened One Night, and The Thin Man. The Thin Man will give you wardrobe envy if you aren’t careful, but so will all of the other ones, so… just remember you / we aren’t movie stars with personal seamstresses.
