This is a great list! You will not be disappointed by bubble tea or Anna Karenina.

This year I will run a 5k and start and complete a sewing/knitting project.

I love this list - so many things I have to agree on:-) Happy belated 30th!!! Mine is coming up in less than a month. Bubble tea is indeed wonderful. Love the photo!

Great list! I love #5 & #6 - and bubble tea isn't as weird as it sounds, I promise. I held out for a long time on that basis :)
