Dear Diary

Dear Diary: 30 by 30: An Update

 It’s my birthday! Which means that it’s time for another 30 by 30 update. I turned 29 today which means I have exactly one year to get my ass in gear and get a wriggle on.

3. Get out of (and stay out of!) debt

Sadly this is looking less and less achievable due to the fact that I plan on replacing the windows in my rental flat in Aberdeen and I can’t add any more money to my mortgage in order to pay for it.

4. Visit 3 countries in Europe

I added another to the tally when I visited Norway for the first time when I took a trip to Oslo with my friend Tony back in February and I have another three city breaks planned for June!

5. Read 50 books

I’m up to 24 at the moment which means I need to read 26 in the next 12 months. Just over two a month which is definitely do-able. Feeling more positive about this one.

8. Plan/host a get together for convention friends

I had some friends come to stay to celebrate the late, great Leonard Nimoy with a Spockathon and it was so much fun!

10. Write/finish writing a book

Interestingly when I attended Literary speed dating I spoke about the book series I have in my head and I’ve been writing a couple of hundred words here and there. I’d really like to spend more time on this so I can have a first draft completed I just need to make it a priority

14. Go back to dance classes

I don’t really know if Zumba counts but I’ve signed up for another ten classes and also a diva dance taster session at the beginning of July which sounds right up my street!

20. Experience a sunrise/sunset in the same day

Thanks to jetlag I got to tick of this in one of the greatest cities in the world New York!

22. Try Dating

My In Defence of Being Single post went a little bit crazy with over 200 views in less than 48 hours when it went live but as per this mornings post I also enjoyed a fab night play dating with DateinaDash which I would thoroughly recommend!

23. Unplug for a weekend

I kind of did this over the last bank holiday weekend but I was still on social media a little so don’t really feel it counts. My London bestie Jen is planning a spa weekend for her birthday in August and I’m planning on completely cutting myself off and just enjoying it!
