3...2...1... Be Typical!

Oh yikes... as it turns out, I may suck at this! I'm sure most folks who decide to blog have the same problem at first... We want to write something interesting. But what about my life (which, btw, I believe to be truly cute and amazing) would be interesting to anyone else? I THINK I've figured out the answer. It doesn't matter!! Screw it... I'm writing about what I like, and we'll see how it goes!

For some time, I've been dying to subscribe to the totally cliche (ummm, anyone know how to make accent marks on a laptop without a number pad?) "30 Things To Do Before I'm 30" lists or whatever they're called. Since I have the attention span of a small child, I decided to make my list pretty short-term. None of this working it down over the years. Also, I think 25 is a cooler number than 26, so I'm making a "25 Things To Do While I'm 25" list instead of 26 before 26 (real reason: I can't bear the thought of being 26... something about being in my "late 20's" just seems yucky).  Ok, so today is July 6. Oh, did I mention that my birthday is February 21? So yeah... I pretty much jacked myself by almost 5 months by waiting so long to do this! Whatever... I does what I does :P
