What is one thing you have to do today?

Eat with chopsticks, which is always a struggle for me. But we're going out to dinner with friends, and I think it would be more embarrassing to request a fork. 

What is one thing you've been putting off?

Cleaning the house! I keep saying I'll do it when I have a day off, but then I have a day off and I conveniently forget. At least we took the Christmas tree down. On March 1st.

What is one thing on your bucket list?

To take a cross-country trip by train and ride in a sleeper car. I'm not sure it would even be all that exciting, but it's something I've wanted to do for a long time.

What is one thing you'd like to do again?

Sing! I took voice lessons for 14 years, I sang in a few different choirs, and I've been in a bunch of musicals, but it's been years since I performed. Not even karaoke! I asked my friends to recommend a voice teacher, so I'm saving up until I can afford that. If I get desperate, I'll bust out my ukulele from the Great Ukulele Craze of 2010. 

What is one thing you regret?

Not filling this out sooner. I'm such a procrastinator! But now I'm regretting that that's my answer to this question, because it probably should have been something more profound. And now I'm regretting that I admitted that. Siiiiiiiigh.
