Six Weeks to Go

Welcome to the Ignorant Historian! If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

Six weeks from tomorrow I turn 30. (I accidentally typed ’15′ the first time, probably because my birthday is the 15th. Hopefully not because I actually still think I’m a teenager.)

So how am I doing on my 30 before 30 list? Green ones are done, yellow are in progress and red aren’t going to be happening. I’m hoping to finish 23/30. Not as many as I’d like, but hey, some of these things wouldn’t have happened at all without this list!

I’m ready for my birthday because I’m ready to start a new list. Details to come on what I’m doing next!
