Today’s post is brought to you by the number 29. Welcome to grown up sesame street.
I had begun to feel a little bummed. Not bummed about anything in particular but in general: Kind of “meh.” I believe this was stemming from a line of uber-fun happenings that made the rest of my life pale in comparison. I mean, that’s a gross exaggeration, but it is the exact feeling that may have crossed my mind. I say may have because I never really know what I’m feeling… ANYWAY.
So in order to combat this, I made a list. 29 things I’d like to do before I turn 29. Which, is (at the time of the list completion) 29 days away.
I may not do all of the items, but I feel very confident. I’ve already done 7. And I’ve made plans to do another today and three of them on Sunday with the help of Maurna from Cursivity.
Over the next 29 days (or at least on the two days a week I blog about my life) you will get an update on the 29 Before 29 List. Without further ado, HERE IS THE LIST!!!! (Those crossed off are already complete…more information is below the list…)
|1||Chop Hair Off (and donate it)|
|3||Jump in fountain next to 401 Grille on Las Olas|
|5||Hold Crow Pose (Yoga)|
|7||Call and Talk to friends with whom I suck at keeping in touch|
|8||Watch the sunrise (on the east coast)|
|9||Watch the sunset (on the west coast… of Florida)|
|10||Introduce Gizmo (my dog) to Edison (P-diddy’s dog)|
|11||Paint a picture|
|13||Go to a museum|
|19||With Laura, figure out Erin’s birthday present|
|21||Go on a date|
|22||Dance like no one is watching (probably because they’re not)|
|24||Go to a movie alone|
|25||Go to happy hour|
|27||Meet a new friend in person|
|28||See Lake Okeechobee|
|29||Hold a non-domesticated animal|
Item #2 (go to trivia with JG) and #26 (order something off a “secret menu”) were completed on Tuesday.
#4 (Have a taco and margarita on Cinco de Mayo) was done Monday night.
#12 (eat somewhere new) happened last night at Rustic Inn
#17 (learn a new song on the piano) also happened last night…before bed I learned Vienna by Billy Joel. See the intro here from my Instagram account (if I’ve approved you…)
#1 (cut and donate hair) will be completed this evening (EEEEK I’m scared!) Numbers 27 (meet a new friend), 28 (see Lake Okeechobee) and 29 (hold a non-domesticated animal) will be completed on Sunday. #15 (learn a new word) and #16 (choose a new signature drink) are done as of yesterday. #15 is “alexithymia.” I probably maybe have this. Feel free to click on the word to learn about it.
Not bad for just starting out, huh?
And just for posteriority purposes, here’s the last picture of my beautiful, long long hair… (single tear).
