It's been approximately one week since my (self-imposed and totally ridiculous) challenge was set (by myself). Here's where I'm at, because I know you've been staying up all night wondering.
Stay up all night partying
On Sunday night/Monday morning I went to sleep at 1AM. It was really, really rough and I felt miserable the next day even though I was completely sober. Awesome.
Go out to dinner wearing a midriff top
I almost packed the midriff top I bought for this very purpose on a recent mini trip to San Diego, but then I chickened out because I knew we'd be going to a gastro pub, and midriff tops do not bode well in an environment where bacon is included on every food item.
No dice, but I have determined the day that I will attempt to make sushi, and I made myself an iCal reminder, so there's a 50% chance it will actually happen.
Go blonder on the bottom of my hair
"Two years ago I jumped on the ombra hair highlights trend (which was at that point, four years old). On August 2nd I have an appointment to re-do my dye, and I'm going to go a little lighter for fun! That's all."
Same status applies.
Same status applies.
Send a letter to Mrs. Lokitz, the teacher who made me a writer
Today I will call the Freehold Intermediate School and request Mrs. Lokitz' home address. I just need to make an iCal reminder for that...
Ugh...this update is getting depressing...
Open a Roth IRA
See above. Add "really" before "depressing."
Read one of the 30 books everyone should read before turning 30 that I haven't already read.
Watch Steel Magnolias
I have determined that Steel Magnolias is on Netflix instant, so my chances of watching it are now greater than 50%.
Get rid of everything in my closet that I never wear
I have made a small, mental pile of the clothing I will donate to charity slash my good friend Lindsey. Get ready Linds! There's a super cute red jumper on that mental list.
Print out all the important pictures from my Facebook
I bought a jump drive to start this process. That's something, right?
Outline that feature film I've been mulling over for at least three years
Ride on a Vespa
I don't even know how to go about pretending to do this one...
Hike to the Hollywood sign
See the sushi plan, add this to that same day.
Develop some semblance of levelheadedness around turning 30
I feel like I should give up the rest of the list and just focus on this, though I probably stand a greater chance of winning my own Vespa than checking this item off...
