Here Goes!

Before I begin, I would like to welcome everyone to my new blog. The purpose of this blog is to set goals for myself and keep life interesting. I seem to have fallen into a pretty standard routine consisting of work (waitress), gym (workout), and home (watch tv). Throw hours of Farmville in every day and you can see why I have started to feel a little.. boring.

I am using this blog to challenge myself. I want to try one new thing every week, whether it's cooking a new meal (I have NO clue how to cook) or skydiving. I am at least for the moment limited monetarily, so I'm going to start slow with some small, simple things I can do at home. I am going to look into crafts, recipes, movies, music, maybe an affordable class of some sort, and definitely volunteer work in my community.

I want to blog about my experiences not only for myself, but in hopes that anyone who reads my blog will get something out of it. An idea for something to do on a rainy day, a new recipe, or just the desire to go out and try something they have always been curious about. Sure, sometimes I'll be blogging about doing things I should have done long long ago, things that you have probably already done (for example, watch The Godfather is on my list), but I have chosen to have no shame and share them anyway. With that said, here comes my very first "for the first time." Enjoy, and please participate by commenting if you would like!


  1. If skydiving is something you are interested in and you don't have anyone to go with, my friends are going to do it around August. You're welcome to come, if you want to do something crazy with company.

    I'll be going to see it, but there's no way I'm jumping, personally.

  2. Hey hun! This is such an awesome idea! You (and my Online Journalism class) have inspired me to create my own blog. I mean, I always had one from back in HS but I've never used it for anything productive. I'm gonna come up with a good purpose for it and start updating it daily. Blogs are fun! :) Good luck with yours :D I can't wait to see what you come up with!
