Ah, so here we sit on the brink of dormancy and I thought I'd try to nudge some conversation.

So I am about a year and a half from leaving the great expanse that is the 30s to join those of the next decade group.

What I was wondering -- does anyone have plans to finish before they reach age 40? Goals? Books that must be read? Desert Islands to find?

I'm coming up on a birthday but still in my mid-30s. I have no big "to-do" plans before 40. I had "get tenure" on my lifetime to-do list, but it wasn't associated with an age, exactly, and now I've gotten it (yay!).

Most of my things I'd like to do don't have a specific age on them in my head, other than "before I become too creaky to move". And I guess if I can't move, that'll give me more time to read books!

Find out what I'm supposed to do with myself. (I ditched the quest for tenure, but that hasn't done anything to help me discover anything realistically achievable, profession-wise.)

I'd like to do a little more international travel. I've been to the southern Dalmatia coast in Croatia and revisited France.

I just aged into this group from the 20-something group yesterday.
