An old college buddy has recently started this blog, where he attempts to complete one crazy challenge every week for the whole year.
The idea has kinda stuck with me because
(A) I never make New Year’s Resolutions because I find them tedious and
(B) I haven’t any Life Events occurring in the next year.
I don’t want to look back in 30 years and say, “Hermia, what the frick!!!??? You wasted a whole precious year of your youth!!!!”
And that got me thinking of an episode of Scrubs where JD tries to convince a woman to get treatment that might save her by naming a load of things you should do before you die (in the end, he realises she’s already done all these things ….and then she dies).
Now while Crazy College Guy is doing insane things like learning to unicycle, developing a computer game and not talking for a week, I’m not really looking to push myself to the limit or punish myself (possible attributed to the fact that I’m a little lazy and I hate inconveniencing myself): I just want to be able to add some note-worthy stuff to my life’s repertoire.
So I’m looking for ideas.
I’d like you guys to recommend some things that you think that people should experience/learn/do/see/etc at some point in their lives, even if it’s reading the Harry Potter series or spinning very fast through a revolving door.
Now obviously there’s going to be huge things like “Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower” and “Swim with sharks” and “Dive out of a plane”, and while I encourage those suggestions, I’d also like you to throw in smaller must-dos.
Then I will compile a list and post it on my blog (in case anyone else wants to join in) and I will get started on it!
I probably won’t be able to do them weekly, but I’ll be looking to do somewhere in the region of 40-50 things by the end of the year.
I’d also appreciate if you could spread the idea to other bloggers so I can get more suggestions, which will mean a longer list of Must Dos and hopefully more participants in the project!!!!
Thanks for your help guys!!!!!!!!!!!!
