Sure, most people call it a To-Do List, but I like to spice it up (and channel Frankie Stein) by calling it a To-Do-Or-Die List, just to make it interesting. Okay, maybe you wouldn’t DIE by not completing one of these things, but it’s nice to think you’re on a timer, to get there faster. 🙂
1) Buy a parasol. I have loved parasols from the all four chambers of my heart (Haha, frogs only have three!) ever since I played the Lady with the Pink Parasol when I was three in our preschool production of The Fat Cat. This is Selena Gomez from the June/July 2011 issue with a Prada top and a beautiful Greatlookz parasol. Click the link to view their entire collection of pretty lace Vitorian meets retro 50’s patterns assortments. Totally worth the $41 price! (Even though you can get paper ones from Chinatown for like $3, but you didn’t hear it from me)
2) Get 1k hits on this blog! And a bunch of followers!
So far, as of Sept. 16, 2:57 PM, I have exactly 124 hits, about a month into blogging. I aspire this blog to be like Tavi Gevinson‘s (who has her own Wikipedia page by the way. What teen that’s not a performer has their own Wikipedia page? Not you or me! Yet, anyway. I like to think my readers are going places.) with 4 mill. hits. I feel selfish saying this, but I am being truthful. Besides, this is a very superficial To-Do-Or-Die List. On my eternal thoughtful one I would put everything about wanting to go volunteer in India with my Girl Scout troop and making an app for the Animal Shelter for more publicity and finishing my novel and donating part of the publication money to charity. Yes, I’m a goody-goody, but those puppies and kittens and kids in India and charity getters are awful glad I am.
But yeah I really like blogging.
3) Pierce either my nose or my belly button.
Personally, I kind of like how pretty and bold the piercing look is. It sort of is like a scar, telling your story for you. So I’m the kind of person who looks around the subway and tries to name where each person is going, their name, and why they’re wearing what they are. With a piercing it’s a the chunk of their life when they contemplated it, decided on the [insert here: eyebrow, ear, nose, lip, the weird bull kind in between your nostrils that sometimes I want to yank off] piercing.
But for my piercing, I’d either get a chic silver stud nose ring, very Ms. K-esque, my 3rd-Grade sub who is an artist and paints pop art and is hilariously funny and dresses beautifully and has curly red hair and is all around very awesome, or I’d get a Riley from Beautiful Creatures series-like belly button that I can adorn with gems. Belly button piercings are cute because they are only really seen when you are in a bikini. So it’s not an in-your-face-I’m-An-Individual thing but sort of a secret.I like secrets, but I never tell.
4) Henna designs year-round!
Henna is a super-cool ancient fake tattoo that you can read about here. They are very aphrodisiac and temporary, so five-to-ten days in, if you get bored, it’ll only be gone in a few days. They are nice for experimenting and you get a billion compliments on them at school/work, etc. The designs really are pretty and often symbolize something. In a previous post I mentioned about drawing cool stuff on yourself with Sharpie. This is even better because it lasts longer then a few days, is really intricate, and makes your applied body part smell insane (in a good way).
5) To see Mean Girls.
I have wanted to see that movie since I saw the YouTube trailer with Disney Princesses instead of the characters.

Thank goodness it’s on Netflix. Netflix is my life, BTW. 🙂
