With my birthday on the horizon in just a few days I’ve gotten to thinking about things I want to accomplish in the next few years. I sat down originally to draft a 30 by 30 list, but it just seemed stifling. There’s so much I want to do and see! On the same hand – I hate the idea of “bucket lists” because I feel most people just write things down and never attempt to actually accomplish them. Plus, I feel like many of those tasks are the same thing over and over. Of course I want to travel the world, who doesn’t? This got me thinking. What goals do I have that are unique to me and this little space of mine on the internet?
This left me taking stock of my life and the things I see myself working towards. It was amusing how much fun I had doing this. A year ago I was having a quarter-life meltdown and this year I found myself looking forward to the adventures that lie ahead.
Making this list also made me have that “holy shit” realization that my ultimate music must since I was a little kid of attending The GRAMMYs has actually already happened. It still doesn’t seem real and I have that wow factor every time I reflect back on it. That just means I have to aim higher with my GRAMMY goals as you’ll see below.
- Bonaroo (It’s always around/over my birthday, which is why I think it’d be awesome.)
- See A Show At:
- Madison Square Garden
- The Troubador
- Red Rocks
- Austin City Limits
- Get an article printed in Rolling Stone
- Visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
- See a show at Paisley Park (Prince’s intimate home studio)
- Finally find the patience to learn guitar
- Attend Clive Davis’ exclusive GRAMMYs party
- Secure a press photo pass for a big concert
- Stereotypical Abbey Road picture
- Meet and interview the artists who impacted me
While this list isn’t comprehensive and I’m sure there’s plenty more to add – it’s a start. I’ve already started researching, planning, and brainstorming on how to check all these off. Some will take sheer will and luck, but I’m determined to try. You might as well dream big right? I can’t wait to hopefully share these adventures with you all!
Have you done any of the things on my list? Can you think of anything I left off?

Until next time,
