30 in 30 by 30

I will be 30 on March 14th and so have 30 weeks to accomplish the following list of 30 things I’d like to do in the 30 weeks leading up to my 30th birthday.  I’ll post about them under my ’30 in 30′ category, but for easy reference I’ll also be crossing them off this, the official, list:

1. Do the photo a day challenge from ShutterSisters blog via Instagram.

2. Knit an adult-sized wearable sweater (same one from before).

3. Be able to do a headstand for 30 breaths.

4. 8km in Istanbul (in November – yikes!).

5. Make handmade Christmas gifts.

6. Cook a full Turkish meal.

7. Make French macaroons.  That both taste and look like them.

8. Make homemade empanadas.

9. Make a batch of pasta from scratch.

10. Make a fancy cake (or cup cakes) from scratch.  Including icing.

11. Post three times/week.

12. Visit Konya.

13. Visit the Black Sea.

14. Visit Mt. Ararat.

15. Visit Mt. Nemrut.

16. Visit a country I’ve never been to (airports don’t count!).

17. Take a hot-air balloon ride over Cappadocia (cheating a bit because we already have reservations to do this).

18. Do one painting.

19. Plant an herb garden (the kind that can survive at 25 floors up).

20. Volunteer.

21. Learn to drive a stick.  (Or convince Mr. Awesome to sell it and get a new car.)

22. Learn about Turkish wines.

23. Re-read classics (but which ones?!  I’ve gotten a few good suggestions, but am still open to ideas.)

24. Try to make teaching yoga a real job.

25. Get a job.  If that’s teaching yoga, I have to be making at least 200 TL every week —  consistently.  Preferably more.

26. Make one week complaint-free.

27. Wake up early and be productive for 28 straight days. (Not the same as complaint-free of course)

28. No swearing for 30 days straight.  Even in my head.

29. Teach Olive three new tricks/commands.  (Off the top of my head ‘stay’ would be useful.)

30. Learn (and use) one new Turkish word every day.
