Why haven’t I done this yet? I know exactly where I can go to get it done and exactly the people I want to do it with. Actually I do know why this hasn’t been done yet. It’s such an easy overlooked thing that I only remember it after I log in to 43things.com and see it there, “take crazy pictures with someone in a photobooth,” barely hanging on at number 25 out of my 25. And then I think, “Oooh, damnit. Thats right.” Aaaaand then forget the second I log out. Great system. Also, I think this is something that I’ll never not want to do even after I do it. I will keep this as one of my things strictly as a reminder to keep doing it. Let’s get started!

How I did it: I didn't use those dumb "thriller tutorials" on youtube, I went straight to the real thing. Who could be a better teacher than Michael? That's right, no one. If you're really determined and focused, this will only take you a few hours. It took me around 3 or 4. I do it every morning to get ready for Halloween and to remember it, plus it's a ridic workout. I cannot wait to show off. Read how I did it…
How I did it: It was more of a realization than a discovery. Writing and journalism is a passion of mine, and it always has been. For some reason I didn't think I could make a career with something I just really loved as a hobby. Read how I did it…
How I did it: College made me. It would probably be impossible to sit in your dorm room all day, ignore your neighbors, ignore classmates, ignore roommates, and remain completely idle. It's isn't hard to do by any means. It seems intimidating trying to make them yourself, but it happens. Trying too hard is a waste of energy aaaand kind of makes you seem like a spaz.

Spring break ‘09? Maybe. Just maybe.
I go to the college that holds the title of 3rd best college food in the nation. Not great for healthful eating, however. I thought the freshmen 15 was always from alcohol. Well, I don’t drink, so HA, I figured I was exempt. No. I was wrong. I packed on the 15 before the end of first semester. This made me realize that I am eating less than healthfully. Is it my fault they have a sparkling array of desserts at all times of the day? No. Is it my fault for eating them? Hardly. I call it dessert propaganda. I need to start taking this healthy eating thing seriously. I will cry if I’m forced to move up a pant size. And come summertime, others will cry with the thought of me trying on swimsuits and modelling them for my friends in Macy’s.
