The 23 List // March Update

Popsicle Shadow Silhouette
^ Yes, I'm holding a popsicle. Yes, my hair was in pigtails. Yes, this is as close to selfies as I usually get. I am so grown up it hurts. :P ^

bake eight new recipes // brown sugar oatmeal cookies with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.

+ read three non-fiction books, cover to cover // What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman. Super fun and easy read, if a little irreverent and eyebrow-raising at times. I got a kick out of it, but if you're the GIANTPERSONALBUBBLE type {which I actually am IRL, but not when it comes to text}, you might get slightly uncomfortable. :P My short review here.

+ read three non-fiction books, cover to cover // The Mathematics of Love by Hannah Fry. "Math is the language of nature, and by listening to what the mathematics tells us, we can all gain a better understanding of how and why we do the things we do." She gets a bit social science textbook-y, but it's mostly written with the lay reader in mind. This is applicable science. The pop culture references sprinkled throughout the book are amusing, although I take issue with the Harry Potter reference in Chapter 4 because Hermione is awesome and isn't pining for Harry to notice her. ): I did know most of the content from my college classes, but the two chapters I learned something from were Chapter 3 {you have a better chance of getting your first choice if you are assertive} and Chapter 7 {when should you settle down?}. 

+ reach 50 Instagram followers and 500 Pinterest followers // number time-- as of the time this post is published, there's 70 Instagram followers and 525 Pinterest followers. Yay!

+ listen to 10 podcasts // done! I had been stuck at eight since, like, the first month I started The 23 List {as I've mentioned before, podcasts don't really relax me the way they do for other people. I feel like I have to take notes and pay attention, since UCLA sometimes podcasted their lectures and I'm used to that. Problems}. But I sat myself down and listened {and took notes-- I can't help it!} to the last two this past week. I'm not sure if I'll listen to more now that this goal has been fulfilled, but maybe. I like the idea of podcasts, I'm just not very good with the reality of them. I'm weird. Recap of what I listened to {with my notes} coming soon.

+ foodie adventure as much as possible // did some of that this month, though not as much as a regular month. With Zoe going downhill that first week of March and me hermitting like mad the following week and a half, I didn't adventure a whole lot. I did hang out with Janelle at Cafe 4 again and we had lunch at Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose with her sister. Still behind on posting about that though, as per usual. :P
