So, what haven't I done?
- Learn to drive a stick shift (well, I am working on it. Stacey is giving me lessons!)
- Have a season subscription to the opera and a dance company
- Travel somewhere completely new, solo (ok, halfway. But I did travel to Peru last year! Not solo, but.)
- Take a serious wine-tasting class
- Complete a mini-triathalon (uh. I started swimming again, that counts for something?)
- Pick up the tab at the grocery store for someone who needs it
- Be able to ice skate backwards
- Visit the catacombs
- Visit my sister in Hong Kong
- Watch a game in the new Yankee Stadium
- Actually decorate my apartment, rather than just putting all my stuff in it and hoping that it might not be too terrible-looking (Everything but my kitchen is done to my satisfaction! Which, ok, is only three rooms. Four rooms, if you count my entry hallway.)
- Learn to snowboard
- Spend two weeks eating a Raw Foods diet (Stacey is going to facilitate / shame me for not doing this soon.)
- Attend a yoga retreat or one of those intense weekend-long yoga workshops
- Learn basic conversational Spanish
- Read a book in French (and no, rereading Huis Clos/Le Petit Prince/anything I read in high school or college for French class doesn’t count)
Travel: Hong Kong, France, New York.
Learn: wine, Spanish, better reading in French, manual transmission in ways that will neither kill an engine nor pedestrians/other motorists.
Physical skills: ice skating, snowboarding, more yoga stuff, mini-triathlon.
Aesthetics: decorate kitchen (prospective theme: Junk Science!), opera and dance subscriptions.
Other: buy someone's groceries, raw foods.
I don't know when I'll finally check the last of these off, or how exactly I'm going to pay for things like travel to Hong Kong and France, but it seems a worthy endeavor. At the very least, watching me try to ice skate backwards will be a source of amusement, no?
