30 by 30

I often re-evaluate where I am in my life and where I am headed — one way I mark that in my life is by creating lists of things I want to accomplish by a certain age. You can read about my reflections on my 25-by-25 list in a blog post here. This list is constantly in flux as circumstances change, my priorities re-align, and the world changes. Some of them are action items, and some of them are more general goals that I’ll reflect on when I turn 30.
