A few days ago, I posted a list of 20 things that I would like to do in 30 days. Six days later, I've been able to accomplish a few of them.
I've posted every day on at least one blog. Each post hasn't necessarily had a ton of substance, but I think it's getting me back in the habit of daily communication, which is a good thing. If only twitter counted, this task wouldn't be quite as difficult.
This week, I was able to unplug all day Saturday. I actually answered my phone, but the main goal was to get me off of the email --> facebook --> twitter --> flickr --> bloglines cycle that I can sometimes take in order to be up to date with what's going on in my network. This task was sadly hard for me. I put this one on the list with a definite purpose -- I need to remember what it's like to not be tied to my smartphone, and to know that the Internet will go on without my constant checking of my favorite sites.
I ended up writing a letter this week to a neighbor that I've never met. This wasn't exactly what I was thinking when I wrote this task, but it definitely fits.
I actually was able to kiss two babies this week! The first was Diner #3, and the second was Sadie, the darling daughter of my best friend Jen.
I am a bit stuck on #20. I'm considering natto. A friend gave me a pack of gu today and suggested that be my food. In an ideal world, I'd like it to be an entire food that I haven't had, instead of a version of a food. For instance, this week, I had salted caramel ice cream from Bi-Rite for the first time (I know, I can't believe I waited this long either). While it may qualify for #20, I feel it's a cop out as it's just a different version of ice cream, which I am very familiar with. Any suggestions on a food I may have never eaten?
Also, did you all see that Sam posted her own list? It's a trend!
