puddingcat: (Happy Kenren)

This idea popped up on FB today & for a change I've decided to give it a go. I have long enough that I'll need to average one thing every 2 months, so it seems possible.

1. Host a onesie barbecue! (Guests in onesies. Not barbecuing onesies. That would be silly.)
2. Run a half marathon. (I can currently jog for 90 seconds. Still, I have 8 1/2 years to get in shape.)
3. Cook a full roast dinner with pudding.
4. Go to Russia.
5. Do 5 chin-ups.
6. Learn how to shoot compound (to ~1st Class std. About 45% of archers can get to this.)
7. Get to a size 12 & stay there for a year. (For overseas people, that's a US 8-10.)
8. Raise £1,000 for Mind.
9. Raise £1,000 for Wood Green Animal Shelters.
10. Learn 1 new knitting technique per year.

11. Get my degree.
12. Get a job I love. (Can be a PhD place, if I still want to do that when it's time to decide.)
13. Get good enough at Russian to manage on holiday (probably in [livejournal.com profile] new_kate's company, which takes the pressure off somewhat!)
14. Sing in public for an audience.
15. Crochet a Captain America picnic blanket.
16. Make a game pie, a la the GBBO.
17. Make apple strudel (including the pastry) from scratch.
18. Go to a convention with friends (Nine Worlds?). Dress up for at least one day.
19. Eat vegetarian for a month.
20. Host a craft day.

21. Knit a garment out of my handspun yarn.
22. Say "I love you" to another person and mean it.
23. Try out a Pinterest-style home improvement.
24. Get another tattoo. (Current idea - which I've had for almost 10 years, IIRC - is to get dark green lines down the back of my legs so any sort of hosiery looks like seamed stockings. I want little leaves growing out either side, though, to be a bit different :) )
25. Visit San Miniato al Monte in Florence.
26. Eat something traditionally Florentine while there.
27. Visit Berlin.
28. Do a bungee jump.
29. Visit the Minack Theatre & see a play there.
30. Do a Tough Mudder / Spartan race or similar.

31. Dye (some of?) my hair a ridiculous colour.
32. Recreate that scene from Ghost with Margot & let mel film it. (My knitting group, ladies & gentlemen...)
33. Get & use a Grow Your Own Mushrooms kit.
34. Go to dance classes.
35. Go to Erotica with Margot. (Yes, knitting Margot. Yes, the sex convention. No, Margot is not Epic Crush.)
36. Make homebrew & drink it.
37. Read Master & Margarita in Russian.
38. Learn a martial art (Aikido? Tai Chi? Iaido if I can find somewhere?)
39. (Re)learn a musical instrument.
40. Carve a carrot recorder.

41. Design a knitting pattern.
42. Go to The Hill Of Witches (on the Curonian Spit) with [livejournal.com profile] daegaer.
43. Take part in a yarn bomb.
44. Stick a pin in a map of the UK & spend a weekend there.
45. Visit 3 museum exhibitions.
46. Try Olympic Trap with Anita.
47. Complete a mindfulness course (Cambridge Buddhist Centre).

Suggestions for the rest are welcome & will be considered, however off the wall they are! I'm not promising anything, though ;)

I'm writing all these in a tiny Paperblank notebook - it's A7 and I'm putting each thing on a separate sheet, so I have room for thoughts / ideas / etc. It feels very grown up & not at all my usual lurching from crisis to crisis, leaving a trail of destruction in my wake, car crash of a lifestyle. You never know, I might end up actually feeling half way to being a grown up by the end of this.

(Edited for suggestions so far.)
