29 Facts about this 29 year old:

Tonight Adam and I were purging (again) through boxes of old memorobelia. You know the kind of box that houses old letters, love notes (trashed now), pog collection, stamp collection, Care Bear and Rainbow Brite, literally anything that I could find of my grandpa's after he died...that kind of box. It was fun to look back on things and reminise about life at the certain point in my life. I was showing a movie about Andy Warhol to my second graders and I learned that he used to save and collect things DAILY and store them in boxes DAILY with the dates on them so that he had mini time capsules of his life for people to look through after he was gone. Kind of cool, kind of obsessive :)
So, I was thinking that someday I may want to look back on this blog and remember some things about me at the age of 29 and 1 day. Here it goes!
