I started the ‘X Things Before X’ series because I didn’t want to wait until I was counting down to 30 to celebrate life’s achievements. I wanted every time I levelled up another year to be a time to kick projects into action, shout about the good things, acknowledge the bad (it’s all character-building, right?).
And now, I find myself finally counting down to the big 3-0. Am I scared? Nah.
What do I want to achieve before I’m 30? I want to get the keys to my new house, I want to explore paid proofreading/editing work once I’ve finished my diploma, I want to publish The Reapers even if I do it myself. I did want another dog, but Neil said no (you mean two is enough?!). I want to see friends and live music (at the same time), I want to sing karaoke, and finish writing the roleplay game I’ve been working on.
30 here I come!
1.) Attended the UK Games Expo (and wrote a post about it)
2.) Saw Mayday Parade in Birmingham! (Inc. several gushing videos on Tiktok)
3.) Made my first cross-stitch design (it’s 1000x easier than embroidery, that’s for sure, even if it does require more focus!)
