25 Things Before 25

Cheer up, Charlie.
Give me a smile.
What happened to the smile I used to know?
Don’t you know your grin has always
Been my sunshine?
Let that sunshine show.

Name that movie. This one’s a little trickier because it’s not from “Lilo & Stitch.” I’ve been singing songs from this movie all week, mostly because I made a Grooveshark playlist of the soundtrack.

The first person to get it right gets a prize. I’m serious. I’ll send you something. And that’s saying a lot because I hate the post office people down here. They’re all mean and ungrateful for their jobs. I mean, they’re government workers, which means they get awesome pay, holidays, and good retirement options. Cranks!

So, in a move completely unrelated to the first paragraphs of this blog, I’ve decided to try to make a 25 things before 25 list. That is, I want to make a list of 25 things to do before I turn 25.

I got the idea for this from one of my favorite blogs, Joy the Baker. For example, 1. Buy my first car. 2. Save 2 animals. 3. Eat 3 things I’ve never tried before. Etc. I kinda want the number and the list item to correspond, but if they don’t, oh well!

I need your help. I need ideas. I know I want to send 25 handwritten postcard/letters to 25 people. So I’ve got one thing on the list nailed down.

If you’d like me to send you a letter/postcard please send your address to 25thingsbefore25 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Also, you can comment on this blog or Facebook with other list ideas. That, or go ahead and send them to the email address listed above. I’ve got about 2 years to accomplish these things, so send all ideas (BIG or small).

So, I need you to do three things:

  1. Guess the movie.
  2. Email me your address.
  3. Comment or email me with 25 things before 25 ideas.
Get on it, you guys. Again, 25thingsbefore25 (at) gmail (dot) com.
I will use your address only to send you a letter/postcard. I won’t sell it to anyone or come visit you. I may Google Map your house though. 🙂 Just kidding.

  1. Firstly, obviously Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

    Secondly, why did you write out the email address in that fashion. It confuses me a bit. (and shouldn’t it be assumed that I would want a postcard?)

    And thirdly, I have a few ideas:
    a) visit a certain number of new states/cities
    b) throw a certain amount of dinner parties with different dishes made by yourself
    c) get rid of five animals you have “saved”

    The last one’s a joke. I know you won’t find it funny, but I am currently snickering to myself. (is there supposed to be a comma before that “but”?)
