Let’s do it completely differently. Next year I’m going to start a new blog and I need your help.
The posts to this blog have been less frequent recently and I realised this blog functioned to discover/uncover what I wanted to do and then trying to achieve it: lo and behold (tears, tantrums and a couple of years later) I seem to be happily heading towards writing. Hoorah, tick: job done.
Now, I have decided to take the blinkers off and open up my horizons a bit. I found this website called My 50 things to do in life. I have seen it before and I quite like the concept behind it: listing things you like to achieve in life and do it.
‘Life’ is a long and vague concept to me but as I was thinking about what I would like to achieve I decided to make my personal version. Please can you help me list 12 challenges for 2012. ( A bit like the Labours of Hercules, without the infanticide preceding it.) A little clarification:
The list needs to be a variety of big and smaller goals with a variety of challenge.
The world is the playground but the tasks need to be specific, eg “Eating a pastrami sandwich in Katz Deli, NY” rather than “Visit New York”.
It should also be something I have not done before.
My normal life will also still go on: I shall not enter a convent or go on a worldtrip. This challenge is not about me taking a GAP year, it is about living life during a recession: life still goes on, so you better make the most of it.
Lastly, the Common Sense Rules:
- Nothing that is deemed illegal – suffering for art has limits.
- No physical and emotional harming of living beings (and dead for that matter.)
- No surgical enhancement needed for any of the goals.
- No reversion of natural causes needed – I shan’t be able to raise the dead or stop torrential rain.
While I’m thinking, I am open to suggestions – so please comment here or on Facebook, email me or just talk to me in person when you see me. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
