take crazy pictures with someone in a photobooth
I always forget this poor little guy.

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!

go on a road trip with no predetermined destination (read all 3 entries…)

Spring break ‘09? Maybe. Just maybe.

eat healthier
Not quite.

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.
