Thirty is a milestone, not because of the number but because of everything you’ve accomplished so far. Those who are nearing this magic number shoulder consider the following if you want this birthday to feel right.
1. Quit Without Caring
One of the most daring things you can do before turning 30 is to quit your job. Yes, you’ve got a few responsibilities, but many people nearing this age don’t have a lot to lose. The chances of being able to do this decrease as you get older. If you really hate your job and want to stick it to your employers, this is the best time to do so. Besides, there are thousands of jobs out there.
Everyone is connected to something like a job or a hustle. You might not think this is a big deal because you’ve gotten used to it, but freedom is precious and you get a taste of it if you disconnect. The best way to do this is to go camping out in the wilderness. Many people don’t know this, but you can do some amazing camping in New York, for example. Try to avoid taking your job with you, and allow yourself to reconnect to nature.
3. Major Move
Those who are able to should consider moving abroad. Don’t just visit a place; go ahead and move abroad, at least for six months to a year. Doing this allows you to experience another culture like never before. Daring folks may move to a place where they don’t speak English, which can force you to learn a new language. Don’t worry if you have to travel alone because this is too important to pass up just because a few friends decided not to come.
4. Host a Party
You’ve probably accumulated a lot of friends now, so why not throw a party for everyone. After hitting this milestone, things get more complicated, and it might be more challenging to hang with your friends. You will need to organize perfectly and possibly cook for everyone you invite. Create a party that feels right to you. If you want something formal, then be sure that’s clear to your guests. Make sure to film videos and take pictures because this is going to be a moment to remember.
5. Get a Costume
You probably remember how much fun it is to put on a costume, but maybe you haven’t done it in a long time. You need to change that before you hit your birthday. There are a lot of ways you can dress up. Some folks throw a costume party, but others just to go to a midnight movie screening while others go to a comic con event. Choose your adventure, and let that kid inside shine once more. This is definitely a story you want to share later on in life.
6. Impossible Feat
It’s important that you accomplish something you thought was impossible if you really want to reach this milestone feeling good. There are a number of things you can accomplish, and it all depends on what you want. You could choose to train for a marathon if that’s something you’ve never done, or you can learn how to rock climb. Master whatever you choose, and make sure you do it. This is going to be hard but when you accomplish it, you’ll feel good about yourself.
7. See a Wonder
There are only a few wonders in the world, and you owe it to yourself to see at least one of them. If you can’t travel too far, then look for a wonder you might have in your home state. For example, have you gone to see the Statue of Liberty in New York? If you can travel a bit, then there’s so much more you have to see like the Grand Canyon of the Great Wall of China. You could also see the Aztec pyramids in Mexico. Choose what you want to see and make sure you see it.
These are some things you should do before you hit 30. Try to follow your heart because there’s surely other ideas tucked away in that young heart of yours.
