It is slightly less than one month until my 29th birthday!
And while there are a few people out there who think I’ve already crossed the 30-threshold, I assure you I plan on bemoaning the end of my prime and impending 1/3-life-crisis to the fullest for the 365 days preceding the momentous occasion. That leaves me with a mere 28 days left to be jolly and cheerful and youthful. And I plan to make the most of them.
In addition to the typical fun summer birthdays bring, I thought I might take on something more significant than usual on the eve of the last year of my 20’s, and sign up for the birthday edition of the Vancouver Blogathon!
From the official blogathon.org:
Now, remember when you were in school and you would bowl for charity? And for every pin you knocked down you got, say, ten cents? Or run for a dollar a mile? During the Blogathon, people update their websites every 30 minutes for 24 hours straight. For this, they collect sponsorships. Pledges can be a flat donation, or a certain amount for every hour the blogger manages to stay awake.
So, there you have it. Blogathon, July 25/26 (my last few hours of age 29), Paws for a Cause September 13th (six weeks into the countdown to 30).
If I can’t avoid aging entirely, at least I can channel my angst into something positive!
