My Mighty Life List

Two things you need to know about this list:
1. It's no exactly a "life" list. It's a "before I turn 30" list. I just used this title because...
2. ...I am a thief. The list is more of a combination of ideas from this Mighty Girl post and this post from Making It Lovely. As someone who spends a lot of time on the internet because their job involves a lot of sitting around, I'm able to find sources of inspiration from lots of different places.

If you come visit me I will teach you to knit and we will read books (namely: Jane Austen books, ALL OF WHICH I have on my KINDLE).

We will also do each other's nails and drink alcohol, which doesn't accomplish other things on your list, but is super fun!

Also: you can move in with me sometime if you want. That's moving out of your parents' place!
