30 Skills Every Woman Should Have Before Turning 30

Lol! Okay I know I have too many years to do most of this but I loved the list :) I saw it on Tanvii's and I have a similar reason to blog. I love the list + I need something to write. I haven't lost the zeal to write but I have lost the zeal to write. All the bloggers who once inspired me are no longer my readers. Actually they would read if they could but the thing is all of us - yes the huge blogspot group I had on my previous blog is almost dead. *I miss you guys!" And plus a huge thanks to Facebook notes - many have shifted to there and so have I :)
Anyways, back to my 30 list: (originally taken from here)

1. Hard-boil an egg - I do! :)
2. Diplomatically tell Mom to butt out - I choose not to. :)
3. Ace a job interview - Been there, done that.
4. Ask a man out - I wish I never have to else it would be #FAIL. :(
5. Send a thoughtful thank-you note - Done! After all gratitude is key to happiness.
6. Listen to a friend in need - Done!
7. Ask for help - umm not done! :( *HELP* !
8. Effectively end an unhealthy relationship (romantic or platonic in nature) - *pseudo* Done!
9. Beautifully wrap a gift - Done!
10. Say “no” gracefully - aaarrgghhh! I hate to say "yet to do".
11. Whip up a great dinner with the five items in her fridge - Done! (A thousand times...)
12. Forget pleasing him, by 30 a woman should be able to tell her man exactly how to please her- Way to go for this...
13. Sew a button - Yet to do.
14. Mix a kick-ass cocktail - Yet to do. Man! Am I far behind in life?
15. Take off her bra without removing her shirt - :P
16. Apply lip gloss in the dark - Done!
17. Balance her checkbook - I have to!
18. Create a budget - I have to!
19. Find the best deal - Done! Yayyy....
20. Negotiate a salary and/or pay raise - oops No.
21. Read a map - done done done !!
22. Hail a cab - :D
23. Say something in French just for the hell of it - yes!
24. Apologize when she’s wrong - Done! No harms in that.
25. Dress for her body type - yes.
26. Change a flat (or know whom to call to come change it) - Done!
27. Spot a fake (handbag, diamond, potential friend …) - Done! Handbag, diamond, *shoes*, friend (kinda..).. Good going Sach!
28. Feign interest - you bet?
29. Know what to tip on a $25 dinner bill - I do!
30. Hold a baby (Hey, someone you know is bound to have one sooner or later.) - Done!

@Tanvi: I like flaunting the basic Indian stuff. They go so well with western finds specially footwear and jewelery (jhumka precisely).

@Uncle Jack:
Thank You. :)
