30 Before 30

As most of you know, I read Jon Acuff’s blog Stuff Christians Like. Recently, Jon added an entry called My 40 Before 40 list in which he wrote all the things he hopes to carry out in the next five years before he is forty years old.

As 2010 is drawing to an end, I thought it might be a good time for me as well to make a list of things I want to do. Forty still seems a long way away, but I have five years until I am thirty, and so that is my goal.

So without further ado, here we go.
