20 things before 20

18 May

Hello everyone! So I have a 20 things before 20 list which is a list I compiled of 20 things to do before I turn 20 this September (19 to be specific). I have some time before my birthday so this list is to help me go through things that I would never do if I didn’t have a timeline. So here is my list:

1. Finish my embroidery project.

2. Read Watchmen.

3. Buy an iPad 2… enough said

4. Go to Animethon 18 which is on Aug 5-7 this year. I will be planning to go for only one day I don’t think I can get off work that easily.

5. Finish Wa-loli Kuro outfit. I started this project 3 years ago and have never finished it better late then never right?

6. Obtain a mushroom farm… kinda like this:

7. Pay mum & dad $100 from my first paycheck as well as my brother $100 (cuz I owe him for all the lunches he’s treated me to) and for my little sister $40 (she complains that she doesn’t have money all the time). Hopefully this one will be soon. ^-^

8. Get a library card… since I’m an adult I have to go get my own library card but I’ve just been lazy to go get one… I will get one though.

9. Start Youtube videos… something I’ve been wanting to do since last year but never had courage or time to make videos and put it up. I will do it for sure!!

10. Determine birthday present wishlist. I know that the iPad is on this list for a reason…

11. Determine 2 year financial plan. Since I plan to go to Japan in the upcoming 2 years I have to plan to make sure that I have enough money while travelling and such. Thus this plan… it’s going to take a lot of brain power that’s why I keep putting it aside.

12. Stay a neat freak… yeah this photo really shows how much I need to stay a neat freak.

13. Continue to study Japanese and Chinese. This one I won’t be doing anytime soon until school starts in September. I will be attending a Sat language class in Sept.

14. Try out a different martial arts even if it’s just one class I would like to try something different. Perhaps kung fu?

15. Attemp yoga/pilates. I would really like to try this but I don’t have much money to spend it on a class (financial plan) so I will learn from a book/video from the library (need library card) or Youtube is a great resource as well.

16. Try food from Sbarro, Thai Express, and Taco Bell. I just want to get out of my usual going to McDonalds or Subway to eat. I never try different foods so here are three places great to try out my taste palette.

17. Go to a spa. I have never gone to a beauty salon so I would really like to go to one. Perhaps from Eveline Charles.

18. Go on a staycation. I am planning with my brother and sister that we should go to the car museum in Wetaskiwin and possibly the Aviation museum in Alberta. But other things for a staycation is attending Capital X (summer amusement park) and Heritage festival (showcasing different cultures from different countries) as well as Animethon of course.

19. Play Spyro: Ripto’s Rage (PS) and finish Pokemon SoulSilver (DS). I have not finished these games and would really like to for sure.

20. Attempt to make curry flavoured popcorn. I heard about the elusive curry flavoured popcorn and since there is not a big chance to come across curry flavoured popcorn I might as well make it myself.

I will be updating every time I finish an item on the list and there is no set order to complete the list as long as the list is completely finished before I turn 20.

Organization

13 Feb

Not much is going to happen early in the morning therefore I ended up cleaning and organizing my area. But I think it ended up being much more of a mess. o.o Well, I patched up my vanity area so now it looks like this…

Warning: Another huge load of photos!

 Tada! The new layout!

Let’s do close-ups! I was so excited once I finished organizing everything.

                         

So yeah, the basic organization of my stuff. Woohoo! All the photos have been uploaded! The drawer that I love the best out of all of the drawers I have is obviously the food drawer. ^_^ Fun times. Well, off to the Viets New Year Celebrations which are tonight. I’ll post photos of it all tomorrow and such… when I get back home I’ll be like 3 in the morning. ^_^ I promise I’m not drinking though!

Popcorn Love

12 Feb

Pretty good day today… everyone loved the Soba that my group prepared for everyone! Hooray I’m a good cook! It is basically a party day today… gotta make sure that I don’t gain any weight from all this splurge eating. At least now it is Reading Week. A whole week off of school! So much to do so little time! Gotta make a list but to celebrate the week-long break I decided to celebrate with popcorn and not just any kind of popcorn… MINI POPCORN!

     

Yummy stuff!! I discovered these minis while flipping through the new Blue Menu book thingie at Superstore. Man, they are really yummy and proportioned out really good! Only 100 Calories per bag better than the larger one pictured above which is about 250 Calories per bag. Though from now on I think I will still be getting both kinds because I mean the smaller ones will  be for me and the larger ones I will definately share with the rest of my family. I love popcorn.

So that will be it for today, I am going to karate class later on today and then going to go over to my aunts house to celebrate the new year. Hooray Lunar New Years!
