30 Before 30

30-before-30

As I previously mentioned my 29th birthday is less than a month away. That means the big 30 is quickly approaching. I feel like I haven’t experienced half of the exciting this most do before they turn 30. Things like traveling and taking big risk. So while I’m still a tad bit young 🙂 I decided to embark on a bucket list challenge. I’ve picked 30 things I would like to do before my 30th birthday.

Post Grad Activities

Like a good college alumnae I went to homecoming this year. In true late bloomer fashion and not-so surprisingly, this was my first time showing my face at a post graduate activity. Being away from Nashville for the last 4 1/2 years, I was just never dedicated enough or had enough money to travel for these types of events. But this year I put on red and blue grabbed my foam paw and went to homecoming to cheer on my alma mater’s basketball team!

 

I have to say being back on campus was a strange experience. So many things have changed yet some things were eerily exactly the same. This time instead of sitting in the student section I found myself on the opposite side of the arena. Instead standing the whole game behind Fratty McFratster, I was sitting behind my first year seminar teacher. The difference between the two sides of the arena couldn’t be on further ends of the spectrum. The student side is loud, feisty, and crowded. The other side of the arena was calm and had a refined sense of excitement. Not to mention comfortable. We weren’t packed in like sardines. To be honest, I think I kind of liked this side better. I could sit down and enjoy the game. Plus I didn’t leave hoarse with achy feet and back. Heck, I’m old now, I can’t hang like I used too 😉 !

While this atmosphere of homecoming was different some things were perfectly similar. One might call it traditional. It just a nostalgic feeling that brings joyful memories of being happy together! Only the cool schools stop in the middle of the game and start singing the Turtles.

Overall, i must say I had an enjoyable experience at my first event as a post grad. Have any of you gone back to participate in any events at your alma mater? What are some of your favorites?

Never Have I Ever

At high school sleepovers and college parties the game Never Have I Ever is almost a rite of passage. There is nothing more exciting than a group of friends  sitting around giggling about all of their crazy life experiences. Its a game full of peer pressure and fun. Its also the one game I have always won!

Mainly because I haven’t done anything. My life thus far has been about as interesting at a piece of Melba Toast.

Well this late bloomer has made it a mission to finally get out the house and explore life. I am proud to announce my first ever segment!! My goal is to try 2 new experiences each month that I will be detailing  in this section.

If you have any ideas of things I should try be sure to leave a comment below.
