Once a Gemini, Always a Gemini

Did you hear? Apparently we've been reading the wrong horoscope this whole time due to the Earth shifting for the past 2,500. Now there's a 13th zodiac added to the mix, the Ophiuchus (a serpent) for those born on Nov. 29th to Dec. 17th. 
So if I were to go by this, I would no longer be a Gemini and would instead be a Taurus. 
Uh, yeah right and highly unlikely because I'm a Gemini through and through. 

Anyways, this got me thinking to something I wanted to post last month but didn't have a chance to. December 23rd of last year marked a year and a half before I turn the big 3-0. Seriously people, where does all this time go? I have this weird mix of dread and excitement heading into that 3 decade milestone. Dread because it serves as a reminder that I'm not getting any younger, even if people think I'm younger than I really am. But excitement because I've heard that your 30's are the best years since you become more comfortable in your skin. I'm hoping more for the latter. 
With that, I wanted to come up with a list of 30 things I want to accomplish before 05/23/12. Will I cross off everything on my list before that day? Who knows, but at least when my 30th does roll around, I will proudly say I was able to accomplish these things. 

So here it goes in no particular order...
