To Do

515. Set up a scholarship

Updated February 28, 2010 I’d like to set up a scholarship for students just like me. I was a good student who loved going to school, and loved learning. I still do. I worked hard, read anything I could get my hands on, rarely turned in homework assignments late, and participated in anti-drug and alcohol […]

509. Learn first aid

Completed June 2002 I took both an Adult CPR class and Standard First Aid class through the American Red Cross. I had a great teacher. She was really great. And the bonus of the whole thing was that there ended up being only two people in the entire class – me and Squirrel! So, blowing […]

491. Study t’ai chi

I’m looking for the best way to study t’ai chi.

487. Re-take the SAT’s

Neverminded February 13, 2010 Teachers and guidance counselors nearly talked themselves hoarse telling us over and over that if we were serious about getting into college we needed to plan on taking the SATs at least twice and had to apply to at least five different colleges to be sure we’d get accepted at least […]

467. Be a flight attendant

The story of how I attempted to be a flight attendant for American Eagle Airlines.

462. Take a flying lesson

Updated December 1, 2009 I’m not afraid of flying, really. I get a bit nervous on particularly bumpy flights or if the weather is bad, but it’s nothing I can’t deal with, and I’ve certainly been more nervous going on dates or job interviews. So I’m just excited about the idea of taking a flying […]

459. Study voodoo or Santeria

Updated June 13, 2009 When I was a child, I had piles of books. I loved them and read and reread all of them. Somehow, a book on witchcraft and wizardry made it into the pile. I’m sure if my parents had realized it was there, it would have been taken away, but I read […]

445. Learn Braille

Updated February 8, 2009 I was a voracious reader as a kid. I couldn’t get enough. Most of the kids were allowed to check out two books a week from the school library. I was allowed up to five. I was also allowed to check out books from the ‘big kids’ section when I was […]

395. Learn Morse code

Updated January 31, 2010 I think I was first inspired to learn Morse code when I saw the movie Space Camp, where morse code saved everyone’s lives and allowed the Shuttle to communicate with ground control. Ahhhh…cheesy unrealistic 80s movies. I don’t imagine there’s a lot of use for Morse code these days. I don’t […]

389. Study the laws of physics

Somehow I missed out on physics – never had a physics class.
