Hello there and welcome to my latest project! I appreciate that you’re here right now and reading this. I hope you’ll decide to follow me this year to see what I’m going to be up to. So, now to answer your question: what is 50 for 50?
January 19, 2014 I turned 49 years old. Not a tragedy, I know, but I’m not handling it very well for many reasons that I won’t go into! Not now. Knowing that the next birthday will be a really big one is hard to swallow. How did I get here?? When did I get so old! LOL!! It just seems so alien to me. But rather than moping around about almost being a half of century old, I’m going to make the most of it and have fun!!
This year I will be celebrating the year that will be my 50th by challenging myself to try, do, and explore something I never have before. The challenge is that I must do 50 new things within the year, so it averages out to one new thing a week. Not so hard you say! Except that going to a new restaurant or different gas station doesn’t count! Plus, if you know me, you know I’ve already done some pretty cool and exciting things in my life. I mean, I’ve already jumped out of an airplane, which is kind of hard to top! This isn’t really a “bucket list” because my bucket list has bigger and more expensive things on it!! All in good time; like after I find a full time job.
Some of the things on the list will be silly, some quirky, some scary, some easy, some hard, but ALL will be fun, interesting, and eye opening in some way or another. And hopefully this will be something you’ll want to follow and will join me on my adventures, big and small! I’ll be posting pictures along with my thoughts on the experiences, and if I can figure out how to do it, video! Yes, I think that will definitely as one on my list! As most of you know, I’m not the most tech savvy girl out there, so using a webcam, video and figuring out how to post it on a blog will be a HUGE accomplishment! If I can manage that, I may just pat myself on the back and call it a day!
So I hope you’ll stay with me throughout the year. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know. You’ll think of things I haven’t, but please be nice! I may also be in contact with some of you who I think can help me with certain things.
So spread the word, tell your friends about this blog. Wouldn’t it be great if this could turn into a book and I can have a book published as a new thing….. oh wait, no I’ve already done that too! LOL! But seriously spread the word, this will be fun!!
Thank you in advance for your support and cheers!! And here’s to a great year ahead!!
