30 Things to do Before 30 (Revised)


I recently celebrated my birthday. It was a happy and lovely one. I spent times with friends, close friends, and the best one too. Gifts? Oh I received many nice things: perfume, purple dress, pillow, hot pants, blouse, book, sweater, scarf, shirt… yippie!!
In the dark side (oh why there is always dark side?!), birthdays always make me melancholic. It’s always about “where I am now”, “what achievement I have”, “what still I don’t have”… yeah, those questions. A few days later I checked my blog and went straight to 30 Things to do Before 30 which I posted last year. I was stunned by some crazy big ideas I put there. I laughed (and cried a bit) and I finally collect my will to revise it now. Yes, I need to revise it to make it more doable🙂.
