    @ Boye by Red: Good for you! I will, although this weekend I didn’t check anything of my bored list, because I was too busy with things like baking cookies, making glow sticks in a jar, painting a bird’s house etc. ;) Will show those soon though!

    @ Dana: that’s a good goal I would say :)

    @ Samatha Joy: Cool! Hope it proves useful!

    @ Shelly: Haha, hope it has something for any nationality ;)
