8 Things I've Learned This Year:
1. Don't forget your age (refer to the post titled "My Birthday").
2. Do not go to a restaurant and let your grandmother tell the waitress that it's your birthday. ::deskface:: >_<  A guy about my age who worked there came and got my name and the age I was turning, then screamed, "Eldarwen is here and celebrating her 16th birthday!!!" (Of course, he used my real name:). I just covered my face, laughed and I'm sure I was red as a rose. (More about that tomorrow;).
Idk anymore at the moment. I'm not very good at these. :/

8 New Recipes I Want to Try and Make by the End of the Year:
Oh my. I have no idea.

8 Favorite Online Hangouts:
1. Blogger (duh)
2. Gmail
3. Blogs (but, I guess that kinda counts as blogger).
I don't go really "hang out" anywhere else online. I might visit a few sites every now and then, but not regularly.

8 Projects I Need To Work On:
Uh, we won't even go there. :P

I'm not going to tag eight people, I'm just going to say that whoever wants to do this tag can! :)

Eldarwen said...

Tay, I read the preface and part of the first chapter, but I haven't read any more than that. I really need to, I just haven't gotten around to it. :)
