Photos from my 22nd birthday party and a 30 by 30 update.
In less than one month I will be 30!!! …
I have to get cracking on planning a party. I totally want balloons and punch with sherbet in it. And pudding shots. That’s all I’ve got so far. Jen and I are having a joint party at my place because her birthday is the day before mine!
Way back when in college we threw a party together. I remember bringing amaretto. And that Sid gave me a talking ET doll that I swear said “ET loves Jews” when you pressed its paw. And I think that was one of the night’s Glen got his car towed. It may have even been the night Glen got pulled over and luckily wasn’t caught underage with alcohol bottles in the sleeves of his coat…or maybe that was another night.
And while we’re on the subject, here’s the update on my 30 before 30 list…
30 before 30
1. pay off my credit card
Almost there. I plan on paying it all of from savings in the next month and then paying myself back.
5. Caption all of the photos on Silly America
So I know for a fact that there are some spelling mistakes and it’s not as thorough as I’d eventually like it to be. But all of my photos have been imported into galleries and all of them captioned! Now I should start updating that website again…
6. fix all the little things on my website
Done done done! I am most proud of myself that I somehow managed to fix the photo gallery search function that was returning results but not crating dynamic albums. Now if you search you can scroll through all of the photos with that search term!
7. organize the stuff in our storage room
8. organize all the stuff I have at my parent’s house
9. clean and keep things clean.
10. Go through all my magazines.
It kind of helped that my parents’s basement flooded and most of the boxes of stuff were ruined…
11. Make a budget.
I’m now on cycle three of tracking all of my spending and setting limits. So I will call this complete.
