Promise To Try Part 3

Day 21: Write a little series of kids books. I've been wanting to write about the joy that is my kitty but since there are so many cat blogs I didn't want to go that way. I'm pretty good at writing for younger audiences, most of my high school projects were just that, so I want to make a little kids series about a traveling cat; my Egglet.

"Madonna also signed a contract with Callaway Arts & Entertainment for five books, and published the first one titled, "The English Roses." The story was about four English schoolgirls and their envy and jealousy of each other.

Day 22: Get more involved with helping others. This might sound trite but I do want to help out and volunteer more. I will donate to Haiti aid and comb through my clothes for stuff I don't wear anymore but mostly, I want to volunteer at an animal shelter. I love animals and I do want to do at least a little bit to help. It will probably break my heart but be something I can be proud of.

"She participated in the televised concert "Tsunami Aid" and performed a cover version of the John Lennon song "Imagine." The same year, Madonna performed at the Live 8 benefit concert in London in July.

Day 23: You might not think so of me, but I like to dance. In the privacy of my room. With my ipod blasting. Hell my mother has caught me many a time and I was embarrassed and tried to play it off like, "Ohhh I was just listening to music, not doing anything else, nope, nuh-uh." I will make myself go to a belly-dancing class. Why belly-dancing? It looks awesome, I'm Middle Eastern so I'm counting on some cultural instinct to help make me not look ridiculous, and I've chickened out twice now and really just need to get over myself.

"Her tenth studio album, Confessions on a Dance Floor was released in November and debuted at number one in all major music markets."

Most of these seem like really big things to take on and they are. But this is a way for me to get going on all the big things I've planned on doing for the last couple years. And some stuff that occurs to me while I make this schedule.

Day 24: Get all dressed up, classic Hollywood style, and go out. Either for dinner or a night out with friends, just be glammed up. No jeans, nothing casual.

Day 25: Go to a gay club. I used to all the time in high school and it's time to do it again and "Vogue."

Day 26: Make a Warhol-type screen-print of an image I love so I can hang it up.

Day 27: Read Anna Karenina. Madonna always had whacked out females as influences and what better way to pay tribute to that than read a classic about a flighty but vivacious Russian?

Day 28: Learn to drive confidently. I just recently got my license but driving still kind of freaks me out, it was one of the reasons L.A. seemed too much. I don't want to reenact the, "What It Feels Like For A Girl," video, but I do want to be okay with driving.

Day 29: Cut up and decorate a few of my metal shirts to better fit me. Madonna invented her own fashion, why can't I?

Day 30: Watch The Drowned World Tour DVD because, well, that goes without saying. The most creative Madonna tour to inspire us all.
