30 before 30 update: discover my story and write it down

this is actually something i've been wanting to do for a long time. i wrote about it before, in several posts (here, here, here, and here), about how i was trying to figure out what exactly my story is.

well. it's two years later. and i found it. and i wrote it out. and i shared it with the swamp tigers. (my community group. feel free to be jealous of our name.) i'm not going to write it all out here on my blog, because it's not something that i feel needs to be shared with the world wide web. but if you know me, and you ask, i'll probably tell you. there's nothing to really be ashamed of from my story, but i stories are not something to be taken lightly.

so. i'm crossing this off the list.

30 before 30 update: 25. walk the cumberland river pedestrian bridge

on my 29th birthday, my roommates and i spent the morning walking the pedestrian bridge. it wasn't as long as i excepted actually, but it was fun to walk across and get a great view of the skyline. here's one of the pictures i snapped along the way:

30 before 30 update: shoot a real gun

as part of my 29th birthday celebration, my friends stacy, suzanne, and chad accompanied me to gun city, usa. the place was every bit as shady as the name. we rented a 38 revolver and a 9mm automatic. i wasn't a fan of the automatic at all (i only shot two bullets from it), but i did shoot a few rounds out of the revolver and finally started to feel comfortable with it. i don't plan to ever own a gun, but i figured it was something i should experience and be familiar with.

enjoy the following pictures.

30 before 30 update: have a small emergency fund

i've actually had this for awhile, i just neglected to update my blog. here's hoping that by finally posting about it, i won't jinx myself and have an emergency.
