Things to do before I turn 30 - Help please

Hi everybody,

Here I am, one month closer to my 30th and I still have not started with the list I wanted to have finished a long time ago. 
I call it the "Bucket List", just because I am not sure how to call it otherwise. And ever since I saw the Movie with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson I wanted to do something similar, with the only difference, I don't have that much money.
I am really looking forward to turning 30 to be honest. No one will ever believe me anyway when I tell them how old I am. People usually think I am about 21 or something like that and I most of the time I still get ID'd for buying alcohol or anything else like that.  I do get a bit annoyed by it, but I guess it's just my genes and I will be happy about this one day, but for now I am embarrassed.

I haven't started with this list yet, as I always thought there would be enough time, but it's now less then a year and I don't think there is a lot you could do in one year and with a low budget.

I do need some help from you to finish this list though, please.

If you'd turn 30 next year what would you really want to do? Or what have you done before you turned 30?

I already ran 2 Marathons,so that's ticked off the list.

Only 2 things I really do not want to do are bungee jumping or skydiving, it's really something I cannot see myself do ever.

I want to get to 30 things!

Here's what I came up with so far:

1) Have afternoon tea at the Ritz
2) Go speed dating
3) Have super toned arms and belly
4) Become a Spinning instructor
5) Help at least 2 people achieve their goal with getting fit and lose the weight they want
6) Sign up to become a volunteer with friendship works charity
7) Advertise my exercise classes and make them a success.
8) Get another Tattoo
9) Go to Liverpool for a night out
10) Plan my Party (3 in total)
11) Finish the scarf I started knitting 4 years ago
12) Fly to Hong Kong
13) Create a YouTube video
14) Go to the Buddha Bar
15) Driving a car in the UK

I really need a little help here now I think....

Please leave me loads of comments with suggestions, so I get more ideas and I can finish this list.

Remember I am turning 30 in August 2014!

What do you think I should do?

  1. I think this is a wonderful idea, I'd love to do something similar! - and you definitely don't look almost 30, woah!
    What would your next tattoo be?
    Lovely post, thanks for sharing!

  2. Hello Amy,
    Thanks for your comment.
    I want a Tattoo saying mum and have butterflies on the side, on my wrist (the inside actually ;-) ) I am too scared as the first one hurt so much but I really want to have it. I want this to honour her, she unfortunately is not with us any more ;(
    Hope I get more suggestions and then actually manage to do everything.

  3. You should go skiing or snowboarding :-)
    And if bungee jumping and skydiving are no good, what about abseiling :-P
    If I come up with more, I'll let you know :-)
