Challenge Accepted!

So for a while I've been wondering which thing to next cross off my 30 before 30 list, and then went and did something that I'd completely forgotten was on the list anyway!

It all started on Saturday, when Husband had the day off work for once. We went out for lunch, and on the way back to the car I spotted a tattoo shop that had a sign saying "we do piercings". I mentioned to husband that I still meant to get my lip pierced one day, to which he laughed and said something along the lines of "Sorry but I don't think you're ever going to be able bring yourself to do that"... challenge accepted!

#12 complete! Sorry for crappy quality iPhone pic!

Thankfully, it was nowhere near as painful as I thought it might be. It's still a tiny bit swollen, and eating, drinking and brushing my teeth are still a bit of an issue, but overall I really like it! I think the owner of the tattoo place thought I was a bit precious though asking if the piercing would permanently mark my face - especially since he had a spider web tattoo covering half of his!

In other 30 before 30 news, I'm a bit closer to also completing #7 - get my drivers licence. I've always argued that I don't want to learn to drive on husband's car as I'd feel terrible if I wrecked it, especially since he needs it for work. Although potentially a lame reason, yesterday I got my own car - hooray! 

Husband named it Kirby...
...Like this little guy! [via]

It was a very busy weekend!


  1. The piercing looks great!
    I have a birthday goal list I need to start on! That's awesome that you're knocking things off your list left and right.

    Found your blog through FTLOB!

  2. Wow good for you! I think it looks really good (I do not have the mouth to pull of a piercing, I'm all allergic to like all metals...)

    Well done! And a car! A good weekend indeed.

  3. That car definitely makes me think of Kirby! It's very well-named!


  4. WOAH! Well done! That's something I wouldn't do!

  5. Great blog! I am also a PhD student, 1st year, Biochemisty... fun stuffs! clicking over to check out you entire 30 B4 30 list, check my blog out?

  6. Ouch! You are brave. Nothing like a dare from hubby to get things happening! Works for me too.

  7. Hehe - I can see the resemblance between car and cartoon Kirby! Very well named!


Hooray! Thanks for commenting :)
