26 New Things in the month before I turn 26

Next month I turn 26…. Crap.

I’ve had a lot of new experiences this year – I’ve washed an elephant, I’ve driven a moped, I’ve eaten a cricket, I beat a Vietnamese man at pool, I lost to a Vietnamese man who definitely cheated at pool. It certainly has been an eventful year. But now I am in Melbourne. I am not travelling and I miss all those wonderful new experiences that I was having.

Being unemployed  (update: I now have a job) in Melbourne means I have a wealth of time at my fingertips. That coupled with the fact I turn the grand old age of 26 means I need something to distract myself.  I know I am extremely lucky to have this amount of free time, so after some thinking I’ve decided to complete 26 new things in the month before I turn 26. Completely new, never ever done before in my almost 26 years on this Earth.

Some will be fun, some will be scary and some will probably be neither. But all will be new and all will be an experience.

I’ll be posting them up on this brand new blog I have created. If you didn’t know it was possible to misplace (completely lose) a blog on the internet, let me tell you it is. Something else I hadn’t done until this year.

Roll on the next month…
