The Salt and Ice challenge

I was surfing through videos on Youtube when I saw around 10 videos relating to a challenge called "The Salt and Ice challenge". Usually, all the cool things that people do involve resources that are unavailable for me. This one required only salt and ice.

My sister gave me the crazy look when she saw the cheeky wide grin on my face. I was excited! I powdered my arm with salt and then placed ice on it.

Do I regret it? A little bit. I did not even feel the cold of the ice for a bit. And then it started to sting. That's when i dropped the ice and ran water through my arm. The spot where I place the ice turned first white, then pink and then a deep red. IT started burning and stinking all at the same time.

The irritating sting refused to let go even after around 10 minutes.

I was planning on trying the Cinnamon Challenge too.

I changed my mind on trying challenges. I am too much of a chicken.

I picked out my favourite dress and assorted my best ornaments and was ready to go. I decided I would buy her a gift on the way. Since I was a kid, I was broke, and so I asked my mom for some cash.

"Why do you want to buy her a gift? She is inviting you because you are her friend. Not for your gifts. "

I tried to reason with her and told her it would be rude to go without any gifts. My mom was adamant and refused to lend me cash. She said something about our religion and celebrating birthdays.

I had half an hour to make a plan. I took out my card stock, oil paint, stamps and ink and sat down to make a card. It …

Things I've done

I found this in a tumblr post. I had to cross off the things that I had already done. Kinda puts everything in perspective. The things I haven't done yet and the things that I have actually missed out on doing. Makes me feel like I haven't seen a 6th of what this world is all about. Try this out yourself.
