Okay guys it’s been a while now and today I think I should give you a little update on my 30 things I wanted to do before turning 30. I think I don’t reveal too much now when I say that not everything happened but I could cross off the biggest part of said list. Let’s have a look at it out loud!
1. Plaster a big fat kiss on a pig’s snout
Okay this isn’t strictly what I was aiming for but I couldn’t find a pig anywhere. So my mother-in-law gave me this little pig for may birthday. At least I got some pig to kiss <3
2. Throw a big cream tart at someones face
Strike!!!!! Yeah that was more than fun!
3. Watch “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”
I am cheating a bit. I haven’t watched it so far but we have tickets for the touring Musical in Munich next weekend so I see this (almost) done!
4. Read “War and Peace”
Okay this was kind of a big cheat but I tried and couldn’t make it through more than 5 pages. I read the summary on Wikipedia and even this was tiresome! Case closed forever!
5. Dare a handstand
Jepp, I did it. It was a bit ugly but I managed a wall handstand on my own.
6. Master a pull-up
No chance, maybe I was aiming a little too high! But I will certainly not forget about it!
7. Going on a fancy date
A few days before my birthday we managed to go on a fancy date aka dressing up and eating curry made of gold. At least I hope it was pure gold as it certainly cost a fortune. But absolutely worth it!
8. Completing my “The three Investigators” Collection
Easily done as I had almost all anyways!
9. Get a wand
Buuuhya! But still waiting for the Hogwarts letter to arrive!!!!
10. Go on a Linkin Park Concert
Munich, last November. Great show! Nothing more to say!
11. Remake family photos from then now
We really didn’t make it! I blame my ongoing sickness. We had a date set but had to postpone. I need to make a new date after my cousins move next week!
12. Start writing my dissertation
I don’t know if I truly will use what I have written now but at least I already started. What a good feeling!
13. Be more bossy!
I tried and failed and went back to being me. I am not bossy and I don’t like the bossy me.
14. Go to the ophthalmologist
Guilty of not doing this. And I don’t even have an appointment! Oooops!
15. Get to know Germany
I learned all the 16 federal states including their capital cities and can even find them on a map. Pathetic as this is being tought 5th graders :-S
16. Take another photography class or sigh up for one
Signed up for two!
17. Reorganize my kitchen
Same as with the family photos. A date was set and then another but I was sick. But it’s going to happen the next few weeks!
18. Signing up for my second half
I decided against in favor of a mud run. Then I couldn’t sign up for the mud run as my friend will get married on that very day! Friends > Mud
19. Make a roast
Did it and it was delicious though if I had followed the recipe it would have turned out to be a sole of a shoe
20. Complete a 30 day push-up Challenge
I was too lazy.
21. Bind an Advent wreath with my Mum
Self-made from the scratch.
22. Going on another Whole30
Did it and let it emerge into sustainable eating habits. In don’t have to proof I can push through. I already did it once. Sustainability is more worth striving for!
23. Dress up as a Bond Girl
24. Getting to know James Bond
I am not a huge fan! Sorry!
25. Start Olympic Lifting
Did it, love it, will continue!
26. Do something reckless and adventurous
It’s still ongoing. But I’ve set my mind on something and I’ll keep you posted!
27. Afternoon tea in London
Nice afternoon tea in my favorite city on this continent!
28. Make an effort to be kinder
It’s still a learning curve but I truly make an effort and see changes in myself and in how others respond to me. Definitely worth keeping up!
29. Feel good with my age
I certainly do now and I really don’t want to be a teenager anymore!
30. Celebrate an epic 30th Birthday Party
I won’t say what I haven’t said about it so far 😉
So you see I am still busy catching up 😛
Now let’s head all over to lovely Amanda to some other thoughts out loud!
Have a nice Thursday!
