The 30 Things list is all a bunch of really big stuff. Well, big to me. Big enough that I haven’t been able to do those things yet, even when it just involves submitting some paperwork (like #26). There are a lot of little adventures I’d like to have, too.
Local events – While not a wonderland of culture, Phoenix does have some good stuff going on. Because the weather is usually decent, especially in fall and spring, we have a LOT of festivals. Food fests, culture fests, music fests, art fests! Sure, some of them are lame, but in general I love eating food from a booth, listening to music, looking at crafts, and people watching.
Short trips – Disneyland, Six Flags, the Grand Canyon, Portland, Seattle, Washington DC, Austin, Boston, New York, Maine – all places I plan to travel to in the next few years, as long weekend trips or to visit family/friends. Not really list-worthy because I’d be doing these things anyway, but they’re still adventures! And perhaps posting about them will help me focus on the memories and live in the moment a bit more.
Food – Oh, the food pictures you’ll see. I’m a foodie, I eat out a lot, and I love to try new things – dining can be a grand adventure unto itself. When I think about travel, it is always tied a little bit to food. I’m excited to travel more in part because I’ll get to try the culinary specialties of each region – hopefully I’ll remember to take pictures before I chow down.
Social Sharing – I read a LOT of blogs and I use Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest (all under the username Corgisaurus), so I’ll be sharing the posts, tweets, pictures, and pins that I think are interesting or commentary worthy. I’ve found a lot of great stuff through the links other bloggers share, which makes me want to do the same.
I might include some general lifestyle stuff or reviews, too. I’m totally in awe of the bloggers who post regularly, especially when there’s nothing in particular going on. And even though I should find the minutia of a stranger’s life boring, I almost never do. Here’s to keeping it interesting!
