40 Things I Want To Do Before I Turn 40

1 Aug

As my 30th birthday kept creeping closer and closer, everyone started asking me what I would be doing to celebrate. Now this is a logical question, especially considering the bashes I’ve thrown the past couple of years – rooftop pool party in Manhattan Beach when I turned 28, golf-themed pub crawl complete with costumes and scorecards for my 29th – but this year was different. I hadn’t put any thought into my birthday and I honestly just wasn’t very excited about it at all. That was until the morning of Wednesday, July 27.

While getting ready for work, in the shower to be exact, I had an epiphany – I didn’t want to get drunk and crazy for my birthday; I wanted to start doing some of the things I had always wanted to do…start checking off my bucket list. In general, I’m not a fan of the term “bucket list” because it sounds way too morbid – and let’s be honest, I’m getting old, but not THAT old – so I decided to create a list of 40 things I want to accomplish before I’m 40.

I’m still working on creating the actual list, but I plan to post it on my birthday (Aug. 9). So far some of them are pretty simple, but I somehow have still managed to put them off, and some are a bit more complicated and will take a little planning. I’m hoping that when I turn 40 (or hopefully even before then) I’ll be able to look at this list and know that I had an awesome 10 years doing the things I have always wanted to do. And then it will be time for 50 things to do before I’m 50!
