52 free things to do


I'm 30 in late February 2017 (woe).

My life has been boring and I've decided to make myself a list of things (a bucket list, if you will) of things to do by my 30th birthday.

I wonder if anyone has any ideas? I don't have much money to spare so was looking for cheap/free things to do, no matter how big or small, no matter how silly or quirky.

(Also it doesn't have to be 52 specifically - any ideas are great).

Examples might be:

- baking a very tall (or very miniscule) cake.
- doing an amateur selfie photoshoot.
- unofficial world record attempt.
- star-gazing.

Etc. Etc.

Thank you.

Guessing your in the UK as most members are? Maybe doing a day trip to a near town or city you haven't been to? Or a place of natural beauty like a forest?

Maybe costly, but putting away money to see an artist you really want to see? Going to museums/art galleries?

Taking up a hobby like sewing or painting?

Learning a new thing like a language? I've been trying to learn Spanish through the free app Duolingo (it also has a web service if you don't have a smartphone).

Finding out new music using something like

Some volunteering opportunites can actually be really cool. I'm from Liverpool and we still have large working docks and you could volunteer to help repair ships last year without having any experience.

Oh god I want to hear you say,
I want to hear you say that you were wrong again

This is the first thing

Try glass painting. The biggest outlay is the paint and the chances are you have some glass jars already in your home. You can find the designs online or if you're feeling creative you can design your own.

Also try your local tourist information centre they have leaflets/information on free and cheap days out in your local area.

Get a piercing.

It became like a sort of prison. Encased in a silver shell, words so full of bleeding need spilled like drops on dry leaves. And all the while laughter prevailed a long way from here. Nowhere land, nowhere time, nowhere space.

How about an OFFICIAL world record attempt? Most pancakes juggled with your feet for example . . . .

Training and running a marathon for a charitable cause, volunteering with local projects that do things like activities for the elderly/disadvantage/young people/whatever, if you have a garden grow your own vegetables etc or interesting plants, take up photography.
