Because This Is My Life: 33 Things Before I Turn 33

I have the tendency to get a little fan girl over certain bloggers. One being Sarah Von Bargen of Yes and Yes.  Every year she makes a list of X number of things to do before her Xth birthday. Currently she is at 34 before her 34th. So since today I just turned 32 and I am being quite the sad violin about it, I thought that I would use this day to make a list of 33 things to do before I am 33 and then hope that you all forget about it by the time I turn 33, as I MOST definitely will. (ha ha, but also more than likely true story)

Without further setting myself up for failure....

1. Go to New York City 
2. Finish a video I am making as a going away  present for my friend. (She ALREADY moved, months ago) And procrastination for the win! 
3. Post more on this blog than I did last year. 98 posts or more, here I come! 
4.  Institute a bed time. Keep it. (I am already working on this one).
5. Follow up last year's success in paying off one of my stressful debts by paying off another one. 
6. Go somewhere (out of state) that I have never been before. 
7. Get my passport. 
8. Read ALL of Anna Karenina. 10 pages down, 8 bajillion to go. 
9. Read ALL of at least 10 other books. (Emma, if you are reading this, I have ONCE again forgotten the names of the 2 or 3 books you recommended to me. Can you email them to me??????) 
10. Create a new collage. 
11. Finish one of my crossword books. 
12. Eat at 12 new restaurants in Tucson. The more variety, the better. 
13. Put myself on at least one month long spending freeze. 
14. Start cooking the recipes and crafting the crafts I have pinned on my Pinterest. 
15. Develop a regular exercise routine. That lasts. Even if that regular exercise routine is something super pathetic like walking for 20 minutes a week. At this point, something (anything) is better than nothing. 
16. Hike Seven Falls, Sabino Canyon. 
17. Use up all of my stationary! By writing cards and letters to people! 
18. Phew....this list is really hard. Get a head start on 34 before 34 for next year. 
19. Clean out ALL of the currently starred items in my Google Reader. 
20. Create and give a REALLY AWESOME presentation advocating the non-profit I work for in the afternoons. 
21. Write my first ever grant for the aforementioned non-profit. 
22. Learn how to make a cocktail I actually like with St. Germain. 
23. Finish my completely frivolous and flippant e-book. 
24. Figure out the whole e-book thing. haha. 
25. Find an easy system for cataloging all of my digital images and organize them. Any suggestions? 
26. Experience more live music. Portland Cello Project anyone? Coming to Tucson in February. 
27. Go to the Tucson Gem Show. Very big deal here in Tucson and I have never been. 
28. Go to the local Botanical Gardens. 
29. Teach myself how to make good tres leches cake. 
30.  Finish watching all 7 (?) seasons of Doctor Who. I just started season 4. 
31. Create a Life List for Go Mighty
32. Make a batch of homemade gifts and give them to people. For no reason. 
33. Take the basket of clothes that has been sitting in my closet for an EMBARRASSINGLY LONG time to the seamstress to get reworked already!!! It will be like having a whole bunch of new clothes, but for way less $$$. What is stopping me?
