30 by 31 (and a 29 before 30 recap!)

Well, today is my 30th birthday! Since I was a teenager I've admired people in their 30s and thought the true cool people were in their 30s. So, now I'm here! Looking forward to it. 29 was a big year for me, emotionally, and I think I've got it figured out! *YEEHAW!* To "get ready" for my thirties I did a list of my 29 before 30. The list as a process is changing and I'm realizing what I can do, reasonably, within a year (like paying all my debts off is NOT a reality if I'm also going to travel my face off), and hope my 30before31 list is a little more realistic ( more winning ). But, before I get to it, here's a recap of my 29before30:
