Before I turn 30...

I still have not found any inspiration and I loathe ranting on my blog for no reasons. I strongly believe in only talking when I can improve the silence. There is already enough noise in the world. So while I am still maintaining that respectful 'silence', I also, had learnt something from Jennine Jacob, at the TxSCC few weeks back. She said that if one enjoys blogging and wishes to continue it then 'sometimes all you need is to 'show up' just like you would at work'. In my personal experience, inspiration doesn't come to you by just being a bum, so to say. You have to get out there and find it. At least you have got make a genuine effort to find it. So here I am, showing up ... making an effort ... doing the best I can. [Clearly, I talk a lot even while maintaining a 'respectful' silence :P]

So instead of 'lecturing' any more, here's what got me writing this post. As usual Upasna introduces me to a lot of new stuff which I am unaware of in my rather illusive life. So she found a list of 30 Skills Every Woman Should Have Before Turning 30* which means I have less than an year to make sure I have them all. Let's go over them, shall we?
