The 30 Before 30 Bucket List


The 30 Before 30 Bucket List


In no particular order, I’ve put together a list of thirty things everyone should try before turning thirty (or any age, really!) Some of the items listed are things I’m guilty of doing and some are in my list of things to pursue – all of them are important to experience at least once in your before-children-and-marriage life.

The 30 Before 30 Bucket List

1.  Enjoy a One Night Stand

Spend an evening on the prowl knowing that the world is your oyster, and oysters are an aphrodisiac you won’t be needing tonight. Feel the power of knowing that, as a woman on a mission, you’re 100% in control and it’s pretty much a guarantee that you’re going to get lucky. So put a rubber on it and enjoy your time with a hot dude you just met.

Bring a girlfriend and make sure she knows the name and address of where you’re going and who you’re going with. Silence the voice inside you that’s pondering if he’s relationship material, or wonders if he noticed your cellulite – you’ll never see him again (on purpose!), so it doesn’t matter. Just be safe and don’t let it turn into a regular habit!

    reminiscing the past lol!
    try these and be happy! always remember that you only live once.

  2. Jenny Garett

    what the fudge! this is so fun! i should start doing something i still haven’t done from the list.

  3. Grace Stirling

    I’ve done a lot! like getting a job and then quitting, dating a guy who’s completely wrong for me and etc. hahaha

  4. Melani Kalev

    #18 reminds me that now that I’ve got my licence, I should learn how to change a flat tire. Thanks for the reminder! 😉

  5. Lee's Lens Photographer

    Here are a couple more:

      Volunteer – in your own city or some third world country!
      Do something joyously crazy like whitewater rafting or self-indulgent like going on a cruise!

      When I’m 30 (and older) I want to look back on the things I did and think how awesome I was. While there are some fun, memorable ideas on this list, I’m disappointed that having a one night stand -just for the heck of it – has the number one spot. Picking up an STD or getting a broken heart can’t compare to a special day at the beach with siblings or a classic film like Casablanca!

  6. Singing in front of a crowd is the most hilarious! But I think it's worth giving a try 🙂 Will definitely do it…. LOL!

  7. Ahhh… the good old days LOL

  8. Urbanette Magazine should do more lists like this – they’re so fun 🙂

  9. I try #1 at least once a week LOL

    #10 was the best piece of advice up there. There are a lot of people in our lives that don’t contribute as much as we do to theirs or they are just negative. By our late 20’s, we should realize how they affect us and what we should be doing about it.

  10. Paula Lowe

    I can say I crossed a lot of these items off my bucket list before I am 20. Some of them I want to try but it will need me some of the 10 years ahead of me to gather the courage to do so! A lot of times we let the small things go by us and we don’t really notice how important it is. The small things makes a big difference and a lot of times it takes a couple of hours of the day to get some done.

  11. Jen Garcia

    #10 was the best piece of advice up there. There are a lot of people in our lives that don’t contribute as much as we do to theirs or they are just negative. By our late 20’s, we should realize how they affect us and what we should be doing about it.

  12. This is a great list–I love that the tips both encourage you to enjoy your youth while making plans for the future. #12 is great; my roommate is studying musical theater, and her constant singing gets me to sing more as well. Even if you're not good (or, in my case, quite bad) it's just fun.

  13. Jen Spillane

    I love #10. It's taken me a long time to realize how much who and what you surround yourself with contributes to your own happiness–and how all of that is your choice for the making.

  14. I want to do #14 and #18. I think securing a second income is very important. Something can happen and you may need extra money.

    Removing people and things from your life that don't make you happy is an important one. Life is too short to settle for things that don't excite you and give you joy. Traveling is another important one, because being cultured seriously changes your perspective on the world. There's so much out there to experience.

  16. Doing #27 tomorrow, and planning on doing #7 in a month — thanks for the suggestions!

  17. Courtney Watson

    I love these suggestions! I hope to try #2 or #3 one day.
