Milestones

Ooh, two days in a row of blog posts! I hope this doesn’t set too high of a bar for the rest of the year. 🙂 Anywho, I wanted to ask all of you kittens out there a question about later this year. But first, I’ll set this up for you:

You see, July 2012 is going to be a pretty big year for both this blog and myself. 2O July I am turning 3O. Yes, 3O. A big adult number. Getting older doesn’t bother me per se, but the expectations that come with my aging do. (I’m not sure this blog is quite the place for this, but I have been playing with the idea of making this blog more multi-purpose in the hopes that I’ll update more.) Things about me and my personality that were seen as quirks are going to become less tolerable to those that think I should hurry up and grow up already. Most people are not willing to accept that Adults–especially not MOTHERS *pearl clutch*–can dye their hair mermaid colors, which I’m rather fond of doing.

Please excuse the web cam picture.

What growing up really means is debatable, but most days I feel like Allie from Hyperbole and a Half. I’m still waiting for my trophy for the days I’ve managed to be a full grown up; the rest of the time I’m wondering how other people manage to Do All The Things and not putz away their time on the internet.

Story of my life right there.

Back on track…. 26 July is this blog’s 5th anniversary. See where I began? I like numbers that are multiples of 5, and 5 years seems to be an acceptable milestone.
So I got to thinking: should I do something for my upcoming birthday/blog-iversary? I know I have a handful of regular readers, so I thought I’d ask you if there’s anything you’d like to see me do that month. Giveaway? Special posts? Silly contest of some sort? Something else?
???
Help me kittens, you’re my only hope.
