30 Before 30: September '12

I love candy corn.  I have to be careful because I can eat a whole bag of it by myself .   I saw these guys at the grocery store, bring on October!
Another month has flown by and I'm here wondering what I've accomplished on my 30 before 30 list.  This month I've decided to list all of the things I've accomplished first and then list all of the things I am currently working on and finally the things I haven't started.  Here we go!

Accomplished:
*12. Start dying yarn to sell
*15. Crochet a doily throw
*17. Sew a pair of jeans
*18. Grow Veggies in the Apartment
*19. Learn to can
*21. Go fruit picking
*23. See Eve 6 again

In Progress:
-2. Learn to duck dive (This will be put on hold till our trip to Oz in December.)
-3. Get Apartment in Order (I'm thinking about inviting some friends over for dinner to light a fire under my bum to get this goal moving.)
-5. Turn my Etsy into a source of Income
-8. Pay down student loan by 6,000
-26. Learn more about photography/my camera
-27. Make a me made wardrobe/ stop buying clothes

 To Do:
1. Go on Honeymoon
4. Compete in a Surf Comp at the Shore
6. Open a Roth IRA ( I should just do this.  It will take all of one hour to complete.)
7. Get Health Insurance
9. Sew a “Chanel” inspired jacket
10. Go to London again
11. Publish a book of knitting patterns
13. Learn to cook tofu well
14. Design Cable Heart Cardi
16. Sew a quilt
20. Knit a circular yoke sweater
22. Go on a road trip with a good friend
24. Brew beer
25. Start Vlogging
28. Go to Vogue Knitting
29. Go to Maryland sheep and wool
30. Get a new tattoo

Looking at these lists I have to remember that I am only 6 months into my 30 before 30 and I've accomplished 7 of my 30 goals.  That's about a goal a month and that works out pretty well in the grand scheme of things.  The goals that are in progress are all goals that will take me a while to accomplish, but It's nice to see that they are getting done.  What's interesting about those goals is that they all will take some time. A great example of that is my student loan.  I wish I had $6,000 to drop on one payment, but that's not going to happen unless I some how come into a lot of money at once.  I must be content paying my loan the old fashioned way, one payment at a time.  Although I am paying extra every month and am ahead of my payments by 3 months I'm hoping that this will all add up to me being debt free sooner than later.  

My to accomplish list is long, but a lot of those goals are just a matter of time and energy, like the sweater and the cable design.  I just have to plan ahead, hunker down and get it done.  I'm sure in 30 months I'll be able to check all the boxes on my goals.
