15 Things To Do Before You’re 30

Time flies, life goes by and before you know it, you will complete three whole decades of your life! So, don’t waste any time living life to the fullest! I’ve compiled a list of things that you should accomplish when you’re young since you still have a moderate amount of freedom to move around, and more importantly, before you settle down and start a family. **If you agree or disagree, let us know by clicking the up / down button for each item.**

#1 Travel Outside the Country

The numero uno thing almost every person I know regrets doing before they settle down is traveling outside the country. Including me, if you count the couple times I crossed the border to Canada with my cousin to drink before I turned 21.

#2 Attempt to Learn a Foreign Language

A simple Google search of "How long does it take to learn a foreign language" spits back results of 2-4 months. That's it. You binge watch 12 shows during that time frame. I'm actually going to take it one step further with my daughter who's due later this year - she's going to learn English and Spanish at the same time. Works for me too!

#3 Follow Your Favorite Band on Tour

Yes, this takes saving money and skipping school, but it's worth it! These bands don't stay together forever and road trippin' a small section of the country takes care of another thing you must do before you're 30!

#4 Learn an Instrument

You don't have to be a music lover for this one. And if you are, you will appreciate music so much more. Not only is music therapeutic for your soul but it's been known to pick up a couple chicks once in a while.

#6 Survive a Break-Up

Don't do the high school sweethearts thing during your 20's. Going through something difficult like a break-up can be extremely painful but you will come out of this experience a wiser. You’re figuring out now, rather than years down the line, that this person was not right for you.

#7 Meet Your Favorite Celebrity

One of two things will happen. You will frame the picture and showcase it in your house for the rest of your life. Or you will look back and say "WTF was I thinking I liking them??"

#8 Buy a Safe and Keep Stuff

Keep mementos of your young life and when you're 40 or 50, open it up rekindle some memories. Give some stuff to your kids too and enjoy seeing them play with your old toys/mementos.

#9 Go to College!

The last time I checked, employers still value a college degree over candidates who don't have one. It's four (or five or six) years that you'll cherish by meeting new people from all over the world, expand your mind academically, and be on your own for the first time with a bunch of people who are just like you.

#10 Fire a Gun

Not only is it freaking cool to feel the kickback when pulling the trigger but shooting a gun properly and accurately also helps build self-confidence.

#11 Write Down a List of Your Dreams and Save It

How many times have you said to yourself, "I had the craziest dream last night but now forget it!" Try keeping a pad and pencil near your bed and jot down these dreams as they happen. You will look back and see various cycles of dreams based on stuff you're dealing with personally.

#12 Develop a Taste for Coffee

Believe me, you'll thank me for this later in your life. Sure, energy drinks may taste better but coffee is healthier and easier to make ?

#14 Break and Enter

We're not telling you to get arrested but try this at home. I call it B&E 101 and it's nice thing to have under your belt just in case you get locked out.

#15 Experience Freefall

Skydive or bungee jump to achieve some sense of adventure. I'm pretty sure the older you get, the less likely you're going to go nuts and jump out of a plane.
