Kimmy and I have been in Dubai for over 2 years and we still had not gone to a concert.
I’m glad it was John who was our first time. Hah! 😉
And thanks to the roomie, she was the one who officially introduced me to Mr Legend. We got to the concert a few hours early and managed to get close to the stage! He was amazing. His wife is one lucky girl.
After the concert we were both in a John Legend daze. Time is its only cure.
Yes, I did it. I made a list of 101 things I want to get done, in a 1,001 day time-frame. Thanks to Shannon. She created one and got myself and my twin hooked. It’s motivation to get things done! There’s an end date people. A reason why it needs to be done NOW, instead of watching another New Girl episode while on facebook. So, here’s my list… (Oh, and an FYI — it.takes.forever. to think up 101 things that you want to get done while still being realistic of the 2.5 year time frame that you have. Sure, I can think up a 100 things I want to do, but if everyone of them involves traveling, buying, or being an extra in an episode of How I met Your Mother , it wont get done.)
