gottawonder Loves her tortoise!

post random questions daily and see if anyone plays with me and answers them :) (read all 247 entries…)
Some things I think people should be doing when they are thirty-ish, or have done.

1) Read at least one great novel, and not because you were forced to read it.

2) Travelled somewhere by yourself.

3) Dumped one lover, and got dumped by one lover.

4) Owned and cared for a pet. By yourself.

5) Lived on your own for at least a year, and paid your own bills.

6) Did something major without asking anyone’s permission.

7) Experienced death in some form.

8) Experienced birth in some form.

9) Accepted some limitation about yourself.

10) Experienced utter failure at something that meant a lot to you.

11) Experienced utter success at something that meant a lot to you.

12) Changed your mind about something that you thought you really believed.

13) Changed something major about yourself.

14) Made a decision about your feelings about religion.

15) Made friends that did not know you from where you grew up.

17) Stood up for yourself.

18) Walked away from a person, a job, or a situation that you felt was beneath you.

What I would like is for people not to just answer yes or no, but to add a sentance if possible.

Then add something you think people should do by 30.

calypte excited about 2014!

it might depend

on where you live? It’d be harder to have that kind of life in some places, purely because of their size or geographical placement.

But wow – I suddenly feel so very independent, thinking about it! And I do live within 50 miles of home – but then, that does just about cover the whole central belt and two biggest cities in Scotland! ;)

BeautifulDay I wasn't older yet, I wasn't wise I guess

Right

And I live 1661.5 miles from home according to this site. But I’m definitely NOT independent from my parents (financially, for example). They’re only a plane ride away, so it doesn’t seem that far (right now, sometimes it’s seems like they live on Pluto). It’s all very relative.

You make a good point.

In some countries, you might not get the option of living more that a short drive away from home without emmigrating.

Independance is a state of mind?
