cocoandvera 's Thoughts:

My 30th birthday isn't for quite a while yet - even my 29th is still months away. But since I'm going through a period of personal transition, I thought it might be time to revisit the 30 before 30 list I made long ago, when my 30th birthday felt like it might as well be a million years ahead of me. The good news? I've made more progress than I thought! But I still have a long way to go.
