30 by 30

Welcome to my list of 30 things I want to accomplish by the time I turn 30 in 2017. 
I'll be keeping track of my progress here. 

If a goal is crossed out, that means I completed it! I'll put the date that it was completed and a link to a separate post that will spill all the details. 

If a goal is italicized, that means it is in progress.
