32 New things and beyond

I have started a to do list. There are more than 32 items on this list, this is because it is not a list of all the things I’m going to do; it’s a list of possibilities and suggestions. Some are a little out there, like having a baby.   Maybe that will happen one day, but right now it’s a little too much commitment for the sake of doing something new.

My list wasn’t easy.  I have travelled, lived in another country, jumped out of a plane, attempted to learn a new language (many times), slept under the stars, partied at some of the world’s biggest events and shouted Oh My God when in range of a celebrity.

I want my 32 things to be completely new experiences, but they also need to be things that interest me. I do love action in my life, but not all the things will be jaw dropping exciting.  I think it’s nice sometimes to have a quiet day or do something rewarding.

I have already ticked off items 1-4 below, who knows what else is to come. The big goal is to complete the 32 new things before I turn 33 on 4 January 2014, there is only 263 days to go.

I will refine my list at some stage. Here are my options for now. I would love to hear your thoughts and any further suggestions.
