I Want To Do Things!

Yeah, I sign my MS Paint drawings, so what?

As some of you know, I created a list of 32 things I want to do before I’m 32.  I’ve done 7 so far, mostly easy ones – water skiing, visit Denver, eat a 5 lb lobster – things like that.  But it’s time to step it up and get crackalackin on this list.  Things like cook dinner for 10 friends (I’m currently sitting at 4 friends, almost there!), go to Australia, go camping in a tent, and learn to do the windmill.  I’m loving this list; it’s got me doing things I’ve never done like salsa dancing and reading! I know, reading?! Crazy!

Here's my friend Emilio doing his windmill at my cousin's wedding. This will be me someday!

I plan to keep crossing things off this list over the next 5 years but there are also a bunch of things I’ve never done before that are on a much smaller scale.  Not life-altering things (not that eating everything on the dollar menu at McDonald’s is life-altering which is also on my list) but things that are easy to do that I haven’t done before.  So I’m making a 31 before 31 list to supplement my 32 before 32.  This will be 31 things that I want to do before December 31, 2012.  I’ve got a few of them figured out so far but I need a little help coming up with a list and that’s where you guys come in!

Here’s what I’ve got so far.

  1. Watch the Star Wars movies
  2. Eat really hot buffalo wings
  3. Go to a movie by myself
  4. Order an omelette
  5. Shut my phone off for an entire day
  6. Don’t use the internet for an entire day
  7. Go for a walk with no destination
  8. Go into Banana Republic and actually buy something
  9. Eat Indian food
  10. Go to a Rockies game

So that’s where I get stuck. I’m sure more things will come to me if I put some effort in but I’m not that kind of guy and I’d love some input from my readers. I’m just looking for simple, easy things that I may not have done before in my life. Just something little to spice things up a tad.
