My 27th birthday is right around the corner

I always take one day on or around my birthday where I turn off my phone and do something or somethings on my own for that day. It isn't necessarily without any people, just nobody I already know. What category or combination of categories do you think I should spend the day doing?

Category 1: Some kind of one off class in drawing or cooking or whathaveyou.
Category 2: Some kind of "review your life" thing like meditation, life coaching, etc.
Category 3: Retail/commercial like shopping, spa day.
Category 4: "rebranding" -- spend the day getting some pro photos taken, and revamping my "look"/"external identity"/"brand"
Category 5:  Home stuff, like crafting, watching movies, reading books, etc.
Category 6: First date with someone new.


What would you do if you had the day to yourself and you wanted to go on an adventure (not so much the "outdoor adventure" as the "try something new" adventure)? What activities do you find gratifying/self affirming?

What's the etiquette for food allergies at weddings? I'm allergic to a common ingredient that will almost certainly be present in all of the meal options. I don't want to bother the bride about accommodating a special request, but I also don't want to order/make them pay for a meal I can't eat and it seems rude to say "Nothing for me, thanks." Any experience with that sort of thing?

For those of you who bring their lunch to work often...

I need your help.

I have a job with terrible, terrible hours. I work from 12:30pm to 9pm. This means that I have to take care of lunch and dinner while at work. Not only does constantly getting food out get really expensive, but it's also not very healthy. At the same time, having sandwiches made at home every day gets old fast.

What are efficient ways to plan out creative meals for the week?

Update: Starbucks offered me the job!

He said he would call me 'later this afternoon'. that was around 2:15. It's 6pm now. How much longer until I can reasonable start freaking out that he won't call me for the job after all?

What do you hate about Windoze 8?

I hate the lack of a start button and the fact that how images I've saved to My Pictures are displayed when I view them

Oh and I also hate Pinch Zoom on laptops, I'd be moving my cursor around the screen and the zoom changes suddenly without me telling the computer to change it. What purpose does pinch zoom serve on a PC?

Data Usage Question

I recently upgraded from 500 MB of data per month to 6 GB of data per month. Yay!

Since I had such a small amount of data, I never really streamed music while I was on data. However, now that I have loads more, I'm interested in subscribing to Rdio. My iPhone doesn't hold much music and when it's full, it really slows down. In theory, it's worth the $10.00 a month to me to pay for this subscription. However I'm wondering how feasible it is.

Right now, I use just about my 500 MB of data per month browsing Twitter, Facebook, checking emails, playing Words with Friends, etc. I only use data when I'm on the bus, which amounts to 1 hour to 3 hours per day (or so - maybe closer to 4 or 5 days a week). Obviously I will monitor my usage and not stream constantly (you can sync albums so they appear offline, and I will still store music on my phone), but does anyone know if 6 GB of data per month will be anywhere near enough for what I want it for, based on my usage? If it's not, then I won't bother paying for a subscription! I have a two-week free-trial of Rdio Mobile and my data goes into effect on the 17th, so I can kind of see how it'll play out, but I'm hoping for advice from someone who knows something about phone data!

Is there an app or a web site where I can put a bunch of addresses in, and have it plan out a route for me? (with regard to keeping travel mileage at a minimal)

For example, I need to go to a bunch of locations within one county, and I want to go to each one in order of closeness so that I'm not zigzagging back and forth.

I'm making the terrible life choice to join a gym. Any suggestions for gyms I should join? What does one look for when joining a gym anyway?

I'm looking at Crunch because there is one close to where I live and their classes look interesting.
