30 Sort of Accomplishments

30 Sort of Accomplishments


…at age 30.

I’m such a reflector I’ll blind you. 

I constantly reflect on what the decisions, opportunities, and events in my life mean.

And sometimes you gotta write sh*t down.

The point of this blog post is not to boast about ridiculous Hollywood-y things I’ve done.

The point is to share that while turning 30 this year, most of these things don’t matter to me.

My priorities have drastically changed and I farrrrr from desire to do these things over again. The travel stuff? YES. But the celebrity filled stuff? NO.


Many of the items on my list I bet some of my closest friends don’t know. Because these things are not important.

What I find value in at my 30 years are honest relationships, trusting friendship, and unconditional family support and love.
