Try something new!

Back in November of 2011 I made a list of…

21 Things I’ve Never Done. (Go read it!) >>

I recently read over that list and it looks like I need to do a bit of updating and maybe add a few new items to that list to replace the ones I can now cross out. 
Update: I am now 35 years, 3 months and 15 days old.

And I have never:

  1. Drank a cup of coffee – DONE! Read about it here >>
  2. Been outside North America (I long to get to the UK sometime soon!)
  3. Seen the Niagara Falls
  4. Watched “The Notebook” – Done. But did not like it! Waste of 2 hours!!!
  5. Hunted an animal
  6. Pet a dolphin
  7. Gone on a cruise
  8. Driven a bus
  9. Run any kind of marathon
  10. Knit anything – Done! Need Practice at it >>
  11. Tried surfing
  12. Written a novel (Hmmm, started one…)
  13. Broken a bone
  14. Help sail a boat – Done. I think I’d forgotten that I’ve DONE this the summer after grade 12 on Sylvan Lake with family friends in their little 2-man sailboat. 
  15. Sat on a Mexican beach
  16. Sold anything over the Internet DONE! I made my 1st online sale for West Coast Creations last summer via my Etsy store (which will be refilled soon!)
  17. Gotten a tattoo
  18. Bungee jumped
  19. Been to New York
  20. Been engaged (to be married)
  21. Tasted a beer! – Done. Tried one only once…not really a fan.
Forks Wa
Forks – Fans of Twilight will get it.

So, instead of just crossing things off a list and looking at the daunting amount I still have yet to do or go through (not that all are desirable), I decided to make a list of . . .
