Making the Most of It

Facebook Free February is just a day away!  Are You ready for it? 

It’s not a huge deal to me anymore.  I don’t miss Facebook all that much and it’s great.  I have so much extra time that I can devote to more productive and meaningful things.

I have decided to make a list of 29 activities to do this month while I am taking a break from Facebook. 

  1. Reverse Applique on a t shirt
  2. Have a Disney Movie Night
  3. Master a new pen spinning trick and do the thumb flip with my left hand.
  4. Either make or buy a Northwest sweatshirt!  I don’t own one yet and I feel as though that should change in the near future.
  5. Make some pillowcases
  6. Make my brother’s birthday present
  7. Embroidery floss on headphones
  8. Make a fabric and Christmas light garland
  9. Have a mustache party at CCH (I’m not sure what this will entail, but I’ll figure something out.)
  10. Post verses on my wall.  On my corkboards.  Not my Facebook Wall.
  11. Start a new journal
  12. Write a paper about my love of running

  1. Are you really growing a pineapple? Why have I not heard about this? I love growing things, and have thought of growing one myself many times πŸ˜€

  2. Actually Josh, no I’m not, but I almost bought one at HyVee yesterday. I need dirt and a pot and a huge knife in order to complete this one and right now, I don’t have any of those things, let alone trust myself with them in a small dorm room. I’d make a huge mess and it’d be pretty entertaining to explain to people. But, I would love for this to happen this semester some time. Maybe when I go home next, I’ll start it and bring it back to school with me. You can even help me name it!

  4. Do you know how to start a pineapple plant from a pineapple, because I think that’d be pretty tough, though fun.How big of a pot do you need? You could get a knife from the front desk. And I actually have a ton of dirt in my room, lol. Don’t tell anyone…. As for the name…. I have no idea! Possibly Greek or Latin for pineapple… That’s what I like to do with naming things, even if it isn’t creative.

  5. Yeah, I found a tutorial for it. Basically you cut off the top of it with some fruit still on it and stick it in a pot of dirt. Pretty simple. I would need a pot big enough for it to grow a little I’m assuming. After a couple months, I think it said to transplant it outside somewhere and by next school year, it should be ready. Here’s a link to the tutorial if you want to check it out. http://anestforallseasons.blogspot.com/2012/01/how-to-plant-supermarket-pinea…As far as the name goes, I may give it a Haitian name since I’m going there in May!!! Anana is the Haitian Creole translation on pineapple>
