This month I’m participating in 30 Days of Lists, and I’m going to be sharing my weekly lists with you each Tuesday! If you want to see my lists as they happen, follow me on Instagram @Megan_NerdNest. You’ll also be able to find those Instagrams on my Twitter and Jake’s and my Flickr (though I totally failed at this last week).


Welcome to the third week of lists for the March 2013 edition of #30Lists! Instead of making a mini book for my lists as I have done in the past, I’m including my lists as weekly inserts in my Project Life. I used a similar format for all of my base pages, using Ultra Pro 9 Pocket Page Protectors, which, if you’re wondering, do not fit Project Life cards (I trimmed the ones I’m using down a bit).

Here are my lists for last week:


List 11: Things I Do Every Morning

  • Hit snooze too many times
  • Help J get his door open
  • Get E an uniform
  • Rush
  • Pee
  • Check e-mail on my phone
  • Drink coffee
  • Kiss E & J goodbye
  • Snuggle

    Obviously I have two Js (Jake and Jonas), but I know who I mean when.


    List 12: Things I Do Every Night

    • Pop in my NTI
    • read
    • get a glass of water
    • talk to / snuggle Jake

    Love that, looking at the morning / night routine, I can see that my days are framed in snuggling. (Eiza’s snuggling happens when we read together each night, which is right before her bedtime but far before mine.)


    List 13: My Causes

  • multiculturalism
  • humanism
  • cancer
  • human rights
  • equality
  • participatory democracy
  • END 7
  • LGBTQ* rights
  • anti-racism
  • fair trade
  • access to education
  • feminism
  • IMG_7209


    List 14: My Role Models

    • Sherman Alexie
    • Martin Luther King, Jr.
    • bell hooks
    • Ali Edwards
    • Kurt Vonnegut
    • Poppy
    • my friends


    List 15: Ways I Save $$$

    • cloth diapers
    • share entrees
    • shop at Trader Joe’s
    • limit shopping visits
    • wear clothes until they wear out
    • DIY
    • research costs
    • budget
    • pay off early


    List 16: Soundtrack This Month

    • Romeo + Juliet
    • FUN.
    • Brand New
    • Rancid
    • God Equals Genocide
    • The Shins
    • Curious George
    • Yo Gabba Gabba
    • Maklemore
    • AFI
    • Misfits
    • Fugazi
    • Ben Folds Five
    • Matt & Kim
    • Crystal Method
    • Dropkick Murphys
    • Newsies

      If I was feeling especially creative, I’d come up with songs that would make sense with what was happening in my life… what would be playing in the background if my life was a reality TV show or something. Instead, I just listed what I’ve been listening to. But the former idea is golden, and I’m storing it away for later.


      List 17: My biography would include tales of…

      • Overcoming
      • Young Love
      • Woman vs. Self
      • Several 1/4 Life Crises
      • Late Night with Friends
      • How to Rock at Parenting
      • Balance of home + mom + craft stuff with activist stuff
