30 Before 30 13: Language

As I’m sure that you’re aware now, I’m turning 30 in under 30 weeks. As such, I have compiled a list of 30 things that I am supposed to have done or to have stopped doing BEFORE I turn 30.
Each week until I actually turn 30 I will be discussing/ranting about one of the items on the list, and deciding whether I agree with it or not.
Today is the thirteenth entry in my 30 Before 30 series, and the topic is Number 13: You should have learned another language…

At 29 years of age, I have never really placed a great deal of importance on being able to speak a language other than my native Australian-English.

However, when I travelled to Japan for the first time in 2013, I realised that I desperately wanted to live there, and that being able to speak at least basic Japanese would in fact be very necessary. Today’s 30 Before 30 video features some of the tips and tricks I am following to try and speed along my VERY slow progress of learning another language; as well as me awkwardly introducing the video in Japanese!

ENJOY! And thanks for watching 🙂

30 Before 30: Stop Buying Impulsively

Woohoo! This 10th entry of my 30 Before 30 videos marks us being 1 third of the way through my list!

As I’m sure that you’re aware now, I’m turning 30 in under 30 weeks. As such, I have compiled a list of 30 things that I am supposed to have done or to have stopped doing BEFORE I turn 30.

This is week ten of the list, and the topic is Number 9: You should have stopped buying impulsively!

Today, I’m sharing some of my tips for how to talk yourself out of impulse purchases! As someone who is very impulsive when it comes to his vices, this one is probably a little rich for me to be waxing lyrical about. However, it is something that I have actively worked on getting better at in the past couple of years, so maybe some of my tricks will help you too?

I’ve also gone with a completely new style of video for this week’s 30 Before 30, and I hope that you will enjoy the new look.

ENJOY! And thanks for watching 🙂

Apologies for the jumpy-editing. I’m still obviously VERY amateur when it comes to editing video :S

This is actually what gave me the idea for this whole 30 Before 30 project, thanks to a comment from my best friend that we are too old to be wearing thongs and jeans. For this video I’m searching for what sort of summer footwear I can wear instead.

ENJOY! And thanks for watching 🙂

30 Before 30: Stop Buying Graphic Print T-shirts

Firstly – sorry for the shaky quality of this week’s video – I recorded this on my phone so didn’t have the stability of the tripod, plus I have caffeine jitters at all times.

I’m really eager to hear what people think of this entry on the countdown. I’m personally all for it, but that said, I do have a few graphic t-shirts that I love and refuse to get rid of, and a few that are on my shopping list too.

If you enjoyed this video, please give it a thumbs up and/or leave me a comment. Or even if you didn’t!
