Ep.1 Birthday Fun - Things to do in Toronto
Bloglovin My birthday was this past weekend yay! Having only just turned 29, it seems somewhat appropriate to reflect a bit on my admittedly short twenty-something life. How did that happen?! Feel free to chime in: In no particular order… 30 Things To Accomplish Before 30 1. This must be rectified and quick! There are only so many stupid things one can do as a tourist before they get too old for it. Read the blog all about it: Maybe even a refresher course on design? Publish an ebook This blog is just over four years old. Back in America, despite not owning a car, I managed to squeeze in plenty of road trips. The rush and excitement I feel sitting behind the wheel on an empty road at night driving fast but not too fast, of course is something I want to experience here in Europe. Road trip through Germany anyone? I love cooking actually. I find it relaxing and enjoyable. I actually have no idea how easy or difficult this might be. But a nice slice of NY style cheesecake sounds pretty good to me right about now. Send a postcard from every trip I take Back when I was traveling around the world in , I reliably sent off a postcard to my Grandma from every country. It just seems like something I could accomplish every decade and this one is ending fast! Have a morning routine This is something an adult would do, right? Turn off the Internet Metaphorically speaking, of course. Learn the art of cocktail-making I once owned a cocktail shaker and a set of martini glasses. That was a fun year. Jump more often and get better at it! In college one year, during my summer off, I decided it would be a good goal to hula hoop regularly. My friends made fun of me for it, but on my first day of summer I went to Wal-Mart and bought a hula hoop. Backpacking around the world, I was a full-fledged expert at taking spontaneous trips. Book a last-minute plane ticket, show up in a new city and just go from there. I was practically addicted to the Ticketmaster website, buying concert tickets every week. There was something called Naked Boys Reading which just sounded too good to be true. Things like spoken word performances, Dr. There was one semester in college where I made a commitment to myself to read Moby Dick. It had sat on my list of books to read for years before I finally decided to purchase a copy and see what happened. I spent nearly two weeks devouring the story, reading large chunks at night until I finished. And you know what? I love the feeling of coming home to something or someone , so this is an important step in solidifying my relationships here in Berlin. But shutting up just sounds really difficult. Write more often in a journal Again, this was something I once did quite regularly when backpacking around the world. It was always a cathartic experience—writing down my thoughts crazy or not in a journal. Explore my own city It can be totally liberating to rediscover where you live. Practice photography skills I already touched on this above, but photography has become a secret little passion of mine. He always tried to get me interested in photography as a kid and I would have none of it. When I had a corporate job, weekends and week nights were often completely free. This snarky article on Gothamist just hits the point home for me: I need to build weekends and free time back into my routine. The art of making homemade gifts, DIY projects and, in general, just being more tactile. My world has increasingly moved online and I need to recapture the physical. Buy more souvenirs for myself and for others Bringing back gifts from a trip is one of the small pleasures of travel. Nearly everyone does it including me! The souvenirs I do buy tend to be of the more original variety. I know there are plenty of folks out there who find the news frustrating and depressing, one-sided and uninspiring, but I feel quite the contrary. This stems from my desire to be more aware of the world we live in. Take a trip to visit someone I know There are lots of reasons why we travel, but one of my favorites is to visit friends and people I know. Give a talk or presentation Oh god. Even the thought of this frightens me. Professionally it would make sense to push the boundary further and actually present what I know to a larger audience. Maybe this will be the year? This idea came about after spending far too much time on Reddit and YouTube, watching other bloggers and other late-night internet-dwellers putting forth public life goals. There are a lot of options here: These things are a sampling of my goals in life, my philosophies, my thoughts and my passions.
