My Before-30 List

Before I’m thirty, which all the sudden doesn’t feel so far away, there are a few things I want to accomplish. I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts about the power of positive thinking and the power of lists, so I’ve decided instead of having these goals float in my head, I should put…
