20 New Things

March 22nd, 2015 at 03:57 pm

This year (2015) I decided to try and do something new every month. And then I went ahead and created my 20's challenge, which is to save/earn/find and extra $20 a month and lose 20 lbs this year, so I figured I'd up this challenge to 20 new things this year. What have I done already?

1. Went to my first meetup.com meeting from a group I joined 3 years ago. I kept wanting to go to events, but although I would RSVP yes, I would always back out the last minute. But in January I finally went to one. It was ok, but although the group was for people ages 30+ (I'm 37), I was one o the youngest there, by a good 7 or 8 years. I don't know if I'll go again, as the people weren't very friendly. But I will try another group Smile

2. Taught myself to make homemade pasta! I always wanted to learn this, and we got a massive series of now storms where I live this winter. I pretty much spent 3 weeks stuck in my house, so after the cabin fever set in, I decided to use to time to teach myself. It took a few tries (and some coaching from an Italian friend of mine) but I did it and it's gooood! No more store-bought pasta for me! Smile

3. I took a class and learned to make sea-class wire wrapped jewelery! It's easier than I thought it would be and the piece I made came out beautiful! I can't wait until the rest of the snow is gone so I can start scouring my local beach for more pieces! Maybe I can even make some pieces to sell! Smile

4. I'm learning Irish! After 15 years, I have FINALLY found a place that teaches Irish! I've been struggling to teach myself for ages, and it's a really hard language, so I've gotten nowhere. But this month I started lessons at the Irish Cultural Center in Boston! I love it so much and I can't believe I'm finally crossing an item off my Bucket List! Smile
