There seems to be a trend among my friends who are approaching 30 years old to make an abridged bucket list with an impending deadline. In other words, a "30 under 30" list. Well it just so happens to be my 29th birthday today (see my feeble attempt to open a pinata below)!

Seeing as it's my 29th birthday, I figured now's the best time to write my own 30 Under 30 list. Here it is!
