100th Post!

As I pressed publish on my last post, WordPress dutifully informed me that it was my 99th post, which means…this is my hundredth! I knew I had to do something special, so I decided to make a list of 50 things that I want to experience by the time I’m 30 (by the way, it totally still counts even if I have already planned to do it, kinda like when I put things on my to-do list that I’ve already done just so I can cross them off.)

And without further ado,


  1. perfect the art of bread making
  2. finish the 100 movies list

  7. find a job that I am proud of
  8. visit England
  9. grow my hair out really long
  10. get over my fear of dancing
  11. participate in a triathlon
  12. give five compliments/random acts of kindness a day (example: in the picture at the top, I went to the laundry room and found that someone already paid for my load. it seriously made my day.)
  13. write something and get paid for it
