Its 2 PM on a very sleepy Tuesday afternoon…and since its getting difficult to stay awake, i am browsing through blogs…I came across a very interesting blog called – Title Intentionally Left blank..drawn by the ‘title’ (pun unintended), i read the first post and it interested me…it did make me want to jog my memory to remember what have i accomplished and it made me want to do things i have not done before i turn the Big 3!!! :O …(as if i was not already paranoid about turning 25!!!…:S)
So this is a list of “150 things to do before i turn 30”!… i have another 5 years to go…so i figured this checklist is a good way of ‘striking off’ what i have accomplished and ‘ticking’ what i want to do!!!! PS: maybe this will stop me from dozing off at work.. lol…
