I Need Your Help

I Need Your Help

January 1, 2014, will mark the beginning of a difficult journey. Now, it’s sad to say it will be difficult, because this journey is to complete an exciting activity every day for a year. (And really, should that be so hard?)

I need your help. 365 days is a long time. Please comment and add an idea of a day/weekend activity, whether it’s extreme (base jumping), or a weekday fun event (massage). Maybe its a sight seeing landmark or maybe it’s an activity like hula-hooping. List em all!

  10. I know there are days when I come home from work and can’t make myself move. For those days do something simple:

    Take a different route home from work
    Eat something you’ve never tried before (even if you have to order it)
    Go to a coffee shop you’ve never been to before
    Find a news story you know nothing about, read it
    Pick an artist you’ve never heard of and listen to their whole album
    Take a walk with no destination, see where your wandering takes you
    Start to write a story with no intention of finishing
    Journal an especially weird dream you had, before you forget the details

    It might be cheating, but you could do some of these multiple days (each new food/ route counts for a different day).
