During last month, I contemplated what I could do in the new year on my search for me. I normally follow a couple of blogs (I love Google Reader) with many themes: financial, adventure or enlightening as well as of course, some of my personal friends.

One that I came across, that was referenced in an entry, was Olivia Raymer’s 101 Things in 1,001 Days  . This blog follows her quest for completion of her goals throughout almost 3 years. I love the idea: the idea of commitment and setting an aim or a goal to complete during a certain period of time. I do love the idea, but I really have to work on the commitment aspect of the goal.

So! In ode to a new year, I decided to ‘adapt’ Ms. Raymer’s idea of 101 Things, and create my own list: “30 Things in 2013“. My list is for me; things I want to do this year! Duration 1 year. Let the challenge begin 😉
