Shameless Plea for Birthday Gifts, #1

As my 30th birthday is now less than 3 months away (just typing that makes me lightheaded), I've started to compile my list of desired birthday gifts. Really my mom is the only one who ever wants to see the list, but putting the list together gives me the vague hope that I'll get even more presents, so I put a great deal of effort into it. Just the other day, I came across the newest addition to the list, and I'm fairly certain that my mom definitely won't be getting it for me.

GOOD Magazine recently asked its readers to submit new six-word mottoes for the city of New Orleans. The editors narrowed it down to the top 11 submissions and posted them for readers to comment on. My personal favorite struck me immediately, and I've decided it's so awesome, someone needs to put it on a t-shirt and give it to me to wear during my 30th birthday festivities. And also probably for the next ten years. I may need multiple copies.

And just what is this t-shirt design/life motto?

I'm thinking my 30s are gonna be my classiest decade yet.

Allison and Katherine, get to work on this t-shirt gift pronto. I expect extra thought to be put into font selection and overall aesthetic appeal, seeing as how I'll be wearing this for the next 10 years or so.

As one of my many personally created t-shirts reads, "I'm on it."

This is awesome and totally fits my love affair with New Orleans.
