my friend lauren has a “30 in 30” list of goals on her blog of things she wants to finish in the next 30 months. I expanded the project to include both near term and long term goals, hoping to finish them by march 2020, when I turn 30. some may be crazy, but I’ve got time do deal with that. or change it when you aren’t looking.
