Kick It

“What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?” asks the Daily Prompt.
I don’t have a bucket list per se, but I do have my Thirty Before Thirty list.
11: Pay off at least $10,000 of student loans (ha!).

Well, that’s depressing. I’m no closer to paying off my student loans than I am to strapping a jetpack to my back and rocketing to the moon. Upon full perusal of this list, I think I’m actually closer to achieving a lunar landing than most of the things on there. What was I thinking? I’m quite aspirational, apparently. I’ll continue progressing slowly to the endgame of my twenties, but in the meantime, I made a resolution for 2013:

Be a pescetarian — This has been a long time coming. Aside from the fact that I don’t really enjoy meat, my conscience isn’t especially comfortable with eating animals. If I actually had to watch a cow, pig, chicken, etc. be slaughtered for me to eat, I am 99% certain I would beg to spare its life. As for seafood, well, I’m not convinced that fish and shrimp have complex enough brains and nervous systems to call for my abstention from eating them. We can also call a spade a spade: sushi and Thai are my favorite foods and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
