The Countdown is ON!

You guys.

I turn 30 in just a matter of days:

And I still have SO much left to accomplish on my 30 By 30 list!


#14. Finish my classic novel reading list.

I still have two books left:

christmas carol




#1. Watch all of AFI’s 100 Years, 100 Movies.

There are just three left!

ben hur

last picture show

#8. Participate in a protest rally.


There have been A LOT of protests recently. None of which I feel so strongly about that I want to participate. My credentials for a protest are: they MUST be non-violent and they MUST be a cause I believe in. I’m hoping something will come up very soon!


There are a few other things that I know I won’t be able to check off by Thursday. Mostly because of financial constraints. But, I feel like if I can get most of them knocked off, I’ll feel pretty accomplished! Then it’ll be time to start working on my New Year’s Resolutions–ha!


How are you doing with your goals? Do you have a 30 By 30 List?

Its Beginning to Look A Lot Like Nap Time…

I think I need to start taking B-12 again. Or maybe I need to make more of an effort to run in the mornings. I need to do SOMETHING to help myself from just drraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaggggging.

The past few days I have just been EXHAUSTED. Typically, this is my favorite time of the year. Everything about the days after Thanksgiving until Christmas just make me so happy!

But now, I just need a nap.

I have been running and going and doing for far too long! Its so bad, my yawns have yawns.



I really have to push myself to keep going. Especially after a marathon editing shesh that makes me want to rip my hair out.



And, to be honest, I don’t really know why. I used to be able to stay up late/get up early with no problems. Sigh. Maybe its because the skies have been gray the past two days. Maybe its because the days are shorter now. Or, maybe its because I’m turning {gulp!} 30 next week. (And, by the way, I still have some stuff I need to check off my 30 By 30 List!)

Whatever the deal is, I am in need of some R and R. Let’s hope I get some rest soon!

And to all my sleepy peeps, find an empty closet, snuggle up to a mop bucket and just take a quick nap. Just be sure not to let anyone catch you. Not for fear that you may get fired, but fear that they may get their eyes clawed out.
