Let me start with a brief and boring anecdote:
When I was a sophomore in high school, I decided at the last minute that I was going to the homecoming dance. I was poor and afraid that if I asked my parents for money that I would guilt myself into buying a cheap, ugly dress, so I raised the funds on my own by hawking freaky little homemade felt animal purses at school. I actually did make a good bit of cash, but I've literally been trying for years to get rid of my leftover merchandise (which possibly says something about the crafting abilities of my high school self).
I thought I could never look at a cheesy animal purse again until I laid eyes on these suckers:

Fantistic, no? Owls are the new whales. Sloths will be the new owls. Just you wait.
P.S. "Things to Do in Life" addendum:

- take a class
*car maintenance(inept, I am)
*forklift driver's certification(for kicks)
