36 Things for Year 36

So in an attempt to grow more as a person and get out of my own little mind, I made a list of 36 things to do in my 36th year of life. This took some serious thought people. They had to be doable items, improve me as a person and help me meet new people and do more fun things in life.

The following list was much the group effort. My friend Tiffany and I kicked off writing the list over dinner for my birthday at The Counter. We (we meaning me) dragged our server Gabe into the madness, as well as the couple sitting to the right of us, Alice and Josh. I then posted the idea and the partial list on Ravelry’s Miscellaneous Group discussion page where I received a number of really wonderful suggestions from people across the country and even a few gals from Europe (THANKS LADIES) and added the best of the best to my list.

Soooo, with no further ado, here’s my list of 36 Things for Year 36:

  1. Be less bossy/controlling (stop snickering!!!)
  2. Be less judgmental
  3. Be more comfortable in my own skin
  4. Be more kind at work
  5. Conquer a fear
  6. Date men that have positive/healthy relationships with their family
  7. Do a fair isle knitting project
  8. Do a knitting project that requires steeking

  10. Donate to at least three charities
  11. Drink more booze – better booze (go wine tasting a lot!)

  18. Go to a city I’ve never been to – outside of California
