10 things to do now that I'm 30!

Well, I've finally reached the big 3-0 so I decided to make a list of things that I should do now.

Here goes...

1. Start carrying some cash. It was brought to my attention that people under 30 rarely carry cash. So now I have to carry some. (Cash that is)

2. Apparently I should read more nonfiction. (Probably won’t, but I’ll put it on the list anyway)

3. Buy a house and start doing yard work (As If)

4. Take up knitting (oh wait, I already did that)

5. Stop making fun of people

6. Hang out in bars instead of clubs and drink more adult type beverages.

7. Wear longer skirts and looser shirts (in other words, dress like my grandma)

8. Stock up on anti-wrinkle cream.

9. Watch more documentaries about the weather channel.

10. Delete my account on and truly embrace the joy that is

I bought a new bike!!!

It's great right? Kinda reminds me of the bike in Pee Wee's Big Adventure . I put a bell on it and I think it might need a basket too :D

So today I bit the bullet...

...and submitted my grad school application and registered to take the GRE. That's a $50 fee for the application and another $140 fee to take the test, which i will be taking on July 12. You'd almost think they were trying to keep people from taking the darn test. Is it really necessary that it's that much? I think I'm in payment shock right now.

I have to really get down to the whole studying thing now. So if no one other than the people at worrk see me, or if I look distracted, you'll know why.

New and finished projects

Well, I've finished one project (except for blocking and buttons) and started another. The finished one is Knitty's Wisp shawl. Hopefully it will end up bigger once I block it.

and I'm also working on Lankakomero's Terrtu Shawl for a thing at work. I'm about 53 rows in and counting! I'm gonna have to buy some circular needles this size though, cause I'm running out of room!!!
