30 before 30

So there’s this hashtag 30 things to do before 30 list bouncing around twitter and I must say its very intimidating. I’m not the over ambitious sort so its hard for me to make a list of 30 achievable things I want to do. (getting an MBA before 30- me? yeah right) But when I look at my life today I’ve already made some note worthy accomplishments so I reckon it should be part of the list. Considering I only have 2 years till I’m 30 it’s quite pressurizing  

So here’s a list of things I wouldn’t mind achieving within 2 years.

BTW I had a dream that we (you & I) went on vacation to an African Country… we were fitting on colourful dresses lol… mmm a prediction maybe? *something to ponder*

( those are just some of the places I wish to visit ), keep dreaming!!! who knows, “what dreams may come” !!

    • It must have been Kenya cos of the clothes we were trying on (traditional meets trendy) 😀 But i hear the coffee in Morocco is really good 😉
