49. Take modeling classes. Pose as a model in a local advertisement. Get made fun of. Hate models forever.
50. Participate in a research study. It was for Acceptance-Commitment Therapy. So, you know, I didn’t get to develop any mind-reading abilities or anything. (see: Firestarter)
51. Start a blog. Because it kind of sounds like fun.
52. Get featured in the Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges & Universities. (shut up; I didn’t buy the book. Which means I didn’t fall for any scam. It was just for a laugh.)
53. Change the heater core in my car. All by myself. With, you know, some direction from my dad.
54. Learn to recite all of the United States, in alphabetical order (can’t do it anymore. I get all screwed up in the M’s)
55. Learn to sing the ABC’s, backwards.
56. Take a yoga class.
Coming up with that first 56 was difficult. But so much fun. Will update you later when I finish up the list.
