Happy Birthday! 30 Before 30 Update

Two years ago, I made myself a list of 30 things I wanted to do before I turn 30. In 2015, I crossed a lot off my list like road tripping across the United States and visiting national parks. In 2016, I've only crossed off a few more things. AH! I only have 3 years left!

New: I have highlighted things I hope to complete this year! I have also changed #17 from "Ride an elephant" to "Go on safari in Africa" because I learned that (many times) the elephant's spirit must be broken in order for them to give rides to strangers all day. How could I be sure the elephant I rode was not treated like this? Do I want to support that kind of industry?
