Good evening fine friends,
Today I received this little gem in the mail:
“hmmm…” I thought to myself, “Did I get accepted into some sort of society for planet lovers? Or is this a club for X-Files enthusiasts?”
The cool ideas that flooded my mind were boundless.
Perhaps I was chosen to head the country’s most top secret society dealing with breaking through the time space continuum. The envelope’s elegant font and American flag sticker suggested I would definitely be dealing with heads of states.
Finally, my excitement got the better of me, and I opened it up.
Only to find this:
"Cremation just makes sense"
A) Where did these people get my address?
B) What does Neptune have to do with death? Is there a religion that allows you to visit other planets in the afterlife? Why has no one told me about such a badass religion?
C) At what age should I really start thinking about my own demise? 24 seems a bit young, but perhaps it’s never too soon. Perhaps I will sign that form and join the society.
I have so many unanswered questions and so little time to think about my burial options.
Oh well, just another Thursday.
Summer fun is just around the corner, and I was inspired by a Yelp! talk post to create a list of my summer “must-dos”. I’m sure this will be extended as time goes on.
-visit farmer’s markets on a regular basis
-Brit’s rooftop bowling
-movie in the park
-I’m not sure what their event schedule is like, but check out the MN Roller Girls
-Canterbury Park for cheap horse races
-attend the Taste of MN
-check out the Uptown Art Fair
-of course, the State Fair
-head to the Dakota Jazz Club for some yaz floot
For the past 4-6 months I have been heading a large project at work. One that has forced me to work many many many nights and weekends. But ALAS! The first phase of the project is coming to a close…just in time for nice weather! I am definitely going to work on getting my social life back haha. Seriously, happy hour, dinner dates, and movie nights, were words that were long removed from my vocabulary. I will be grateful to have them back for sure.
What are you doing this summer??
I think it is extremely important to set goals. Here’s my bucket list thus far:
-Dance like Michael Jackson
-Travel to Ireland, India, South America, Spain, and Greece (of course I’d like to travel the world, but these are on the top of my list)
-Send holiday cards through snail mail.
-Make Yelp Elite Squad
-Have an awkward ginger baby
-Keep up my French in case one day my lover decides to sweep me away to live in the south of France
-Take singing lessons for fun sometime
-Continuously get makeovers so that I may always look my age (this was made a priority after one of my friends said my swimsuit looked like it belonged to a pre-teen. NOT ok)
-Work on my laugh lines…always
-Save enough money to someday buy a house
-Own a pug and a yellow lab
-Perfect recipes for mac n cheese, chicken noodle soup, and homemade pizza
That’s all I got for now, but I’m sure I’ll add to this as time goes on.
