30 Before 30

I will be 30-years-old in a little over 5 years from now.  When I saw this on moments of exhilaration I thought that it would be a good time for me to think about what I want to do with my life over the next five years.  A short-term bucket list, if you will.

In no particular order and without further ado: My 30 Before 30!

  1. Earn my B.A. in art history
  2. Get married
  3. Start graduate school
  4. Write an article for something other than this blog (Here is the link to the article!)
