#Before30BucketList Preparation and Assistance

Okay so this is only part of a post. A preface, if you will.

Obviously you should know by now that I’ve been working on my #Before30BucketList. One of the things coming up on my calendar is to “Complete a 5k / Walk for Charity”. Another is to “Throw a Fundraiser”.

I’ve gone and gotten myself all signed up for The Color Run in Philly on June 25th. I have a few friends coming along (as long as they sign up, ahem!) so we’re all working together. We’ll be walking, of course, because who runs? (Don’t answer that.) We’ll be jumping and sliding and having a ball getting color blasted all up in that muhfuhka. But we’re also trying to raise money for The Color Run’s partner this year, Back On My Feet.

Our team for the Color Run is called “Color Run Padawans” (I haven’t quite figured out a way to link to our team, I don’t know if they even have team pages) and our fundraiser is “Padawans Color Running for ‘Back On My Feet’“.

We’d love for you to join us. Whether by running walking alongside us, cheering us on, donating even a small amount to our fundraiser, or even just sharing and spreading the message. The Color Run is all about happiness and community and Back On My Feet is all about giving second chances and helping. What’s not to like?? (Plus my #Before30BucketList fits in perfectly).


So just wanted to put this out there. This is a #Before30BucketList preparation in which you can help, if you feel like it. Of course, I’ll update you once I’ve completed the goals — but I do need some help for at least one of them.

Mini-Post Mondays: Weekend, My Boy Rocks, Nothing Like Them, Guest Posts

Welcome back to Mini-Post Mondays, y’all!

I had an amazing weekend. I romped around South Street and got an amazing new journal and the Children’s Nihilism Workbook, which is just hilarious and awesome, and some other stuff I won’t get into. I almost got my palm read but obviously this was a bad psychic because every time I went there she told me 10 more minutes and then in 10 more minutes she was busy doing something else. But anyway, I saw an old friend and a new friend and just being able to let loose without worrying about anything was perfect.

My Boy Rocks

Yesterday morning I was changing Holden and he told me not to put his diaper on, so I didn’t. Then I went to smoke a cigarette and when I came back in asked him if he had to pee and he said “No, I already did” and sure enough there was PEE IN THE POTTY. He’s been doing it ever since. I’m not sure how he’ll be when I put clothes on him, but at least we’re getting somewhere.

I Am Nothing Like Them

You know how spam comments are usually good? They want to get our attention, after all, so they say nice things. Well, I got one that said, simply, “You are nothing like us”. That’s it, the end. I mean, I guess they’re right, because I don’t spam people, but still.

Guest Posts

Don’t forget to check out the guest posts I have on here — I’ve noticed those posts tend to get less views than my own and I think it may be because they have a different avatar, but alas, they are really some great posts and you should definitely check them out!
