le list.


mmmk. so after that last post, i finished up some of the nutty stuff that’s going on en mi casa*, including sourdough bread and a wee bit of theory.

and now, it is nearly time for the wave pool.

i have enough time to stuff my face with cheese chive scrambled eggs and to write up a list that i’ve had in my physics notebook since mid-february.

without too much detail, which i don’t have time for**, this is a list of twenty-four things that i want to do before i turn twenty-five (next june). i’ve seen this done before, and i like lists. i also like doing things. and almost all of the things on this list, i like doing.***

here goes.

01. try one new cheese every month.
02. visit one of the ten largest cities in the us.
03. have a publication credit (that isn’t my thesis).
04. get a pedicure.
05. take a photography class.
06. go to a street fair. april 2010, seville and amsterdam
07. read an entire book, for pleasure. 18 march 2010, a homemade life
08. get my driver’s license.
09. knit a pair of socks.
10. run a 10k race in under one hour****
11. make macarons.
12. read a seminal work on urban design.
13. change my hair cut/colour
14. make paper mache.
15. bike to work. and home again. repeat.**** 11 july 2010 and 12 july 2010
16. bake something delicious and gluten-free. 21 may 2010, lemon & fig cupcakes
17. volunteer for forty hours.
18. make ice cream from scratch
19. sew something, either by hand or by machine.
20. have a snowball fight.
21. host a sort-of-fancy dinner party.
22. sort through all books, magazines, cds, dvds and clothing items. make room.
23. find a magazine series that i love, and subscribe to it.
24. try yoga, again.

*spain in five weeks. i need to brush up on my spanish
**particularly now that the sister-in-law is coming by early, because she’s lost her bathing suit bottoms and we’re the same size.
***number 8 is not my cup of tea.

  1. If you come visit me in Chicago we can take care of 2,13,14,18,19. haha I’m good at those things. As for 8…can’t help you there, I think driving sucks too.

    Good luck, I don’t like making lists because I never finish them.
    (oh and not to be a stalker, I clicked something on your twitter and this came up)
