30 To-Do-List Before I Hit 30

Here’s my to-do-list before I hit 30. The timeline can be extended, due to the unpredictability of life.

I will update this list from time to time in order to make sure that I do some progress toward this list moving forward.

  1. Traveling to all 10 ASEAN countries. 
  2. Reading all the complete series of Buru Quartet by Pramoedya Ananta Toer. 
  3. Creating a blog specific to my own interest with a personal touch in total. With this blog starting to operate, I think I’ve nailed it. Even created a business card under my pseudonym on this blog 😉
  4. Starting my own business. BeautiQ for a start.
  5. Learning how to cook Indonesian food. 
  6. Sending a postcard to my distance friends when I’m on vacation. 
  7. Sending myself a postcard from my vacation spot. 
  8. Visiting Croatia and meeting Dora Spehar in person! 
  9. Having sex in a public place. Kuala Lumpur, 26 September 2017. Enough said.
  10. Going back to Izmir for vacation. 
  11. Saying ‘I love you’ to someone that actually matters. 
  12. Getting rid of this Bell’s Palsy. 
  13. Learning Italian. 
  14. Getting myself a new laptop. Thanks to my friend Ricky who’s saving up money for his wedding that he started selling his stuff so I could buy his laptop. 
  15. Bungee-jumping. 
  16. Going to Bali for the first time. 
  17. Breakfast in bed, made by someone that I genuinely like. Anyone but my Mom, who’s done it whenever she can. :p 
  18. White Christmas. 
  19. Living in 4 different countries before I hit 30. 
  20. Networking and participating in external communities to get more insights in blogging, writing, and other things that I love. One step at a time, I attended a writing workshop recently that led me to write a piece of writing here
  21. A tour at Emirates Stadium. Even better if I could get proposed there or something. *please notice me, senpai!!!! 😉 
  22. Going back for Umrah, this time with my Mom. 
  23. And for that, my Mom wants to go for Umrah without the travel agent. Ergo, my own itinerary and all that. 
  24. Reunited with some of my classmates during my summer course in Turkey. 
  25. Watching Arsenal live in the stadium. It would be even cooler if I could do it in the Emirates. 
  26. Purchasing a small, classy jewelry for myself. 
  27. Submitting visa application on my own. 
  28. Opening a library with my book collections for others to enjoy. 
  29. Going back to fly just for the fun of it. 
  30. As classic as it sounds, getting married and having my own family. 

Wish me luck, and cheerio!
