So today marks the start of Lent, right? I don't really know since I am not Catholic and generally do not participate in events that involve giving things up. Serena and I were emailing yesterday, though, and decided it might be a good time to do just that. However, being the positive creature I am*, it was changed into proactive statements and things to add to our lives. Go see her list after you read mine.
Things To Do Differently In Honor Of Turning 27 And It Being Lent:
+I will do my best to always refill my car's gas tank when it is 1/2 full instead of waiting until the gas light comes on.
+Once I get my passport I will use it.
+I will flirt everyday.
+I will not flirt with the wrong people.
+I will not order diet coke at restaurants. I will put that $2 into my travel fund....or at least my Starbucks or beer fund.
+I will find and use more new words and phrases. (Note: not made up words necessarily)
+I will take a lot more pictures. A lot. A lot a lot a lot a lot.
+I will sign up for the Praxis 2. (ooops, that's there just because I keep forgetting to do it. It costs money, though!)
+ I will get back in the habit of sending postcards to friends. (email me if you want to be in on the list of recipients!)
+ I will play more tennis. I'm taking my three private lessons soon (the ones I got for my birthday last year) and then I am going to need someone to play with. Is it you?
That's all for now...will add to the list as I think of things!
*Unless at work. Then I turn into Debbie Downer sometimes.
