things to do

Since turning 26 this week, I have been contemplating my life and reflecting on all that I have accomplished. I remember the first time I ordered pizza sophomore year of college, my first time pumping gas at age 20, my first train ride by myself... I've really come quite far! So it made me think, what else is there to accomplish in life?? Here's a list of random things I have never done, despite being 26 (note: this is not necessarily a to do list, as I have little desire to do any of these things):

1. ordered food at a drive thru window (talking in that intercom freaks me out)
2. taken my car in for an oil change or maintenance (my dad does it for me)
3. called information to get a phone number or address
4. used a coffee maker
5. done taxes
6. washed my own car (although I have washed other people's at fundraisers)
7. used power tools, or maybe any tools, I can't really remember
8. mowed a lawn
9. been to a dry cleaners or travel agent
10. ordered in any type of food besides pizza (chinese, sandwiches, etc.)

I'm sure there's more, I just can't think of it right now. I'll let you know if I accomplish any of these this year.

I think the only one of those that you may have to come to terms with at some point in your life is doing your taxes. If you can get through you life without ever having to do them, I'll be jealous.

You will never cease to amaze me, Sara.

Taxes aren't that bad once you get used to them. And as long as you aren't itemizing. Once you get there, it sucks.

Drive-thru window... seriously? What's freaky about it?

I think you'll be able to get away with not doing any of these things ever in your life.
