On my birthday in 2018, I decided to set a goal for myself to try a new thing every week. This decision came to mind while I was having birthday drinks with some of my favorite people at Ceres. We then discussed the ideas of what I could try: skydiving, different restaurants, travel, etc.
I came home and wrote a list of ideas (because who doesn’t sit and make lists on their birthday?) and from there I was off and running. For the next 52 weeks, I succeeded in trying a new thing every week. These new things did range from skydiving and trying to restaurants, and there were even some straight up lame “firsts” (like getting stitches for the first time.) I had a really fun time doing this, and wanted to share the challenge with all of you. So, for some inspiration, I’ve included my 10 favorite new things below – in chronological order – (the other 42 I left out since they fall under the ‘lame’ category). Some of these were on my goal list, but most of them simply just happened (and, sometimes, those were the best).
