So yeah, about 'no shop April'....

Apparently I could only last 23 days. Sigh. I've been thinking about it though and to help me on the way to a more successful May (yes, I rhymed) I've decided to take this number as a sign and make a list of 23 THINGS (or activities) that I could enjoy instead of shopping:

1) Cleaning out my closet. Again. I've only been able to fill one more trash bag but I'm still not happy with the amount of clothes left. I don't know how I'll get rid of more but I have to.
2) Cleaning my house. Unpacking has been a.....gradual process to say the least and while most of the stuff is away there is room for improvement.
3) Reading. Always a favorite.
4) Makeup practice. I have not done enough of this lately and I think I'm finally in the mood to get back into enticing friends over so I can play with their face.
5) Free activities in DC. I follow plenty of blogs and should be able to find something to do with myself that doesn't cost copious amounts of money.
6) Beach! It's all I can think about and as soon as the weather is consistently warm (both a good and bad thing) I'm getting someone excited about carpooling.
7) Museums? I'm not totally sure about this one, but I liked the video game exhibit I saw last month and would probably go again
8) At home mani-pedis. My feet I am ashamed to say are like the Sahara. Some concentrated love would not be amiss.
9) Youtube. This will only last so long as there aren't enough videos or daily vlogs in the world to keep me permanently entertained but hey, we'll see.
10) Yoga. Or Exercise in general.  In case you've never met me let me clarify and say that I hate exercise. I never feel better or more energized when I go, but I did hate Yoga less that most when I tried it in college.


11) Game Nights. I've said that I want to do this for a while but my general reluctance to have people in my house has been challenging.
12) Dragon* Con Costuming. Again, this is an activity that won't entertain me forever as Googling and Ebaying relentlessly gets draining, but still it must be done!
13) Organizing my jewelry. I still haven't gotten by chotsky shelf and jewelry corkboard up since the move and it's bugging the crap out of me.
14) Practice guitar. This is a BIG maybe as I don't think I'm destined for music super-stardom, but hey it's another thing to add to the list.
15) Margarita Popsicles. Another 'to-do' item from last summer that's been left undone.

.....f*ck. I can't think of any more. Let's just pretend I had 23 and move on ok? I'm sorry I bought clothing. I'm a horrible person and should be flogged in the street.
