In other news, I just said on Twitter that I'm going to the movies with a stranger, which is quite true. I will let you use your imagination on that one.
And now, another list!
Things I Plan To Do/Accomplish This Year That I Will Not Call Goals
(Excepts Perhaps In My Head)
- Learn to drive and get a real license.*
- Go on an adventure.
- Get a job.
- Work. Accumulate money. Contribute to society.
- Learn to cook more food.
- Be an expert gardener.
- Go to Europe.**
- Read 8 classics.
- Be fluent in Spanish and conversational in French***.
- Learn stuff.
- Finish editing my novel and get a literary agent.
- Write another novel, NaNoWriMo style.
- Follow my bliss.
- Make new friends.
- Be awesome.
I hope that you guys are enjoying the world this week and my apologies for not blogging on Sunday. Long story short (I love saying that), I went to this big colosseum place to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Guides and it was horrible. It is best summed up in this instant message conversation I had with a friend: http://mysticsquirrel.tumblr.com/ Ignore that if you already read it from my Twitter.
Have an awesome weekend. Do you two have a long weekend for Victoria Day? Probably not, what with your country separating from the British and all. Your loss, I hear Queen Victoria was pretty kick ass and statutory holidays win. I'll try to figure out how to blog on Sunday even though I will technically be in the wilderness where there will be jell-o wrestling and disgusting eating contests. Oh, Skeeter, you frighten me.
*A real license, in case you're curious, is one that does not entail any ageist restrictions and allows me to transport myself alone. Also, fun fact: I can actually get this real license while I am still 16 because, although it says you must have your learners permit for a year, you can actually take the road test two weeks less than a year after you pass the knowledge test. So let's all reward the eager beavers of the world.
**My sister and I are planning a whirlwind trip to Europe next spring and, yes, my life is this amazing.
***Did I ever mention that I'm learning French? (Souhaitez-vous aller à la chambre des secrets avec moi?) p.s. feel free to correct my grammar on that.
