The 365 1/2 Days Project: 10 Things I’ve Never Done Before 2012

There is something about lists that gets me going. I don’t know if it is the Asperger’s but I really tend to obsess over lists (yeah, tastes like vinegar off my mouth).

But I guess this can be a good thing if only I can use it to go on a self improvement course. Last year, I credit a lot of fantastic experiences with my 10 things I’ve Never Done Before (2011) List so no point in dropping a good thing right?

This year I wrote a new list with the same intentions: use the list to catapult me to great adventures the entire year! I did not entirely suck last year though I missed two so hopefully this shall be an incredible year too! Wish me luck!

10 things I’ve never done before (2012)

  1. Read a book once a month – …And hopefully be smarter and have a lot more sense. First on the line is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by S. Chbosky (thank you Rem :))
  2. Root for the Philippine Azkals in a live game – One football match is most of the time running and passing drills but the thrill of getting near the goal and finally taking a shot produces such intense excitement. I want to watch a live game this year, too bad I missed the last one with Beckham and LA Galaxy!
  3. Grow an herb garden – I am totally fascinated with herbs. I buy the dried kind inside little bottles but they are really expensive! I plan to save and have fun by growing my own in little pots. This will be really exciting! πŸ˜€
  4. Go to school for something – No point in preserving a good brain in salt right? Not sure what short course, seminar, or whatever to take up yet but it’s sure going to be good. Oh, I know… maybe I will find bread making classes!
  5. Take My Man to the movies at least once in every two months – The time frame sounds ridiculous, I know, but you know my patience, or the serious lack thereof, can really be a drag but this is really something I want to do to show I care, naks!
  6. See my other Gran in Cavite – Last year, we visited our Gran in Iloilo City, this year should be easier, hopefully! Since it is nearer, maybe I can fund a trip for the entire cast so it should be cool.
  7. Take Don Domeng and Mother Goose for a short vacation – I don’t know where to go yet, maybe it will depend on the budget πŸ˜† but Coron sounds great. Mother Goose just changed her mind about flying so this is the perfect opportunity.
  8. Cook and serve dinner – Baking was the biggest skill of last year so why not go on a roll and cook actual meals this year? I really don’t know if I am crazy for saying this because this is way out of my comfort zone but no harm in trying right?
  9. Go out of the country – Remnant of last year’s list, but I have a good feeling I’ll accomplish this very soon. πŸ˜€
  10. Ride a roller coaster – I really could have done this last year and scratch it of my list but I got lazy but hopefully the new year will help me cut back on the lack of diligence and industry. Fingers crossed!

Does that look like an exciting list to you or what? It may sound lame but I think this will do it for me. πŸ˜€ Sure beats having New Year Resolutions fluffs! Have a fantastic year ahead everyone! Keep it awesome! πŸ™‚

    • i thought about growing basil but not exactly tarragon. i’m glad they are easy to grow. i am thinking of purchasing my little pots some time this month to get a move one. happy new year to you too liz and thanks for all the great music every monday. πŸ™‚

  8. Happy New Year PM!!! Before anything else I want to say thanks for the Kris Kringle you promoted last Christmas! Natuwa ako to receive and give a gift thru blogosphere!

    I wish you all the best this 2012! Hope you could visit Coron! Super ganda dun if you look for outdoor and water activities! =)

    • to you too pat. πŸ™‚ i enjoyed the exchange gift too. hopefully we can do it again this year. i will visit coron, maybe after the summer. i don’t like water activities. i cannot swim and i hate traveling by water. very catty no? πŸ˜†

    • you can join me! it would make us commit more for sure. i’ve also asked orange to do the same earlier. i don’t know what he thinks of the idea yet.

  9. would love to grow a herb garden too..but darn winter 😦 As for reading a book at least once a month … I thought I could do ebooks now that I have a tablet…ugh.. I’m more into games and instead πŸ˜‰

    Have a wonderful 2012 – hope you accomplish your list this year !

    • maybe you can grow it after winter! i can’t read ebooks. with work i am always online so i won’t be able to associate reading with relaxation and calming down if it is still on a laptop or online. it would suck πŸ˜† same to you bw and i will strive to work this one out better! πŸ˜€

  10. wow, that’s more family-centered; nice list, PM! all the best on your endeavors!
    cheers to a healthier, happier and more peaceful 2012 for all of us!

    • thanks! i want to but i get lost easily and it will be difficult if i will go by myself. then again i want to go by myself and meet all of you because i get distracted when i have to look after someone with me!

    • thank you! i have done number 1 for the first month. it’s exciting! i asked my mentor to give me a book on how to understand fiction so i can read all these books well. so far so good. happy new year!

      • The secret is to keep on reading. πŸ™‚ Happy new year, PM. I wish you all the best. May you accomplish these things with all of your heart. πŸ™‚

    • i have read the hp books. twilight no interest at all :mrgreen: thank you for giving me the links! i wish you the same this year. i really will get the roller coaster ride, maybe around summer. the idea does not mortify me so much, i think. πŸ˜†

  12. .. i do think it’s slightly the syndrome you have. lol! i’m drafting my list now, goodluck on riding a roller coaster, i thought i was about to die when i did it! πŸ˜€

    .. happy new year pm, thanks for following my blog, and the feline comments!

    • i will do it on summer maybe. i’m actually pretty excited about it! i will ask my man and my sisters to ride it with me so we all end up looking like idiots πŸ˜† same to you rob. good luck to us!

    • thank you, i need that! there are only 10 in the list and a whole year to do them but somehow time runs out so hopefully i can scratch everything this year! happy new year to you too!
