  1. Hi there! I just stumbled on your list of 30 things (I know, it’s from a while ago, but I still enjoyed reading them!). I just started my own 30 before 30 list, and, mine is being done in the remaining 30 days before I turn 30 (3-19-12), but the catch is that I’m trying to raise 30,000 for charity in those 30 days! I really enjoyed your reflections! I think it’s what we learn along the way that truly is most important.
